9: The Prelude

This week we return to the planet of the long poems, with a discussion of the middle books of William Wordsworth’s Prelude (the 1805 text of course, sheesh). Now with intro music!

This episode of The Sometime Seminar discusses Wordsworth’s Prelude, especially books 5, 6, and 7, and focusing on the version of 1805.

Preludes: 1805 (pdf); 1850; 1798-99
