9780333718896: The Revolutionary I: Wordsworth and the Politics of Self-presentation

In the winter of 1798-99, shut up in the freezing German town of Goslar, William Wordsworth began producing lyrical fragments that appeared first in letters written to Coleridge and emerged eventually as source texts for The Prelude. These lyrics are revolutionary because they construct a new version of the autobiographical 'I'. The Wordsworthian first person, which becomes the prototype for so much subsequent writing about the self, emerges out of an interplay among complementary and conflicting questions: How could a struggling 28-year-old author write a 'great' poem? How might he satisfy the expectations of his imagined, as well as actual, readers? How should he fashion his own life into and out of poetry? The constant writing and rewriting of a poem with many titles over many decades was a textual act designed, at least in part, to answer such questions. The Revolutionary 'I' explores the numerous voices of the poetic speaker 'Wordsworth' and their relationship to the historical figure who shared the same name, offering the first sustained analysis of the complex autobiographical voice in Wordsworth's poetry.

Book Description:

Ashton Nichols's The Revolutionary 'I' trawls through versions of The Prelude up to and including the 1805 text in search of a fundamental Wordsworthian orgininality, which he believes is a generative source of most subsequent imaginative literature in English...he believes that Prelude breaks new autobiographical ground with its presentation of the I as a dramatized cultural self rather merely a mimetic revelation of identity.' - James Treadwell, The Wordsworth Circle
