Trial e-Resource - Romanticism, Life, Literature and Landscape

We currently have free trial access to the Romanticism, Life, Literature and Landscape database, until 20 April 2013.

This rich resource presents the Wordsworth Trust's manuscript collections, digitised in colour.  These rare literary primary sources are indispensible for research on William Wordsworth and the Romantic period.

Included are the working notebooks, verse manuscripts, diaries, travel journals, guide books, autograph albums, maps and the personal correspondence of Wordsworth and other Romantic poets and writers, including Dorothy Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas De Quincey and Robert Southey. 

Romanticism, Life, Literature and Landscape offers an insight into Wordsworth's working methods and into the wider social, political and natural environment that shaped much of his work, and that of other key literary and political figures of the 18th and 19th Centuries.

Also included are over 2,500 images from the Trust’s fine art collection which bring to life the landscape that inspired literary creativity and poetic genius.
