IT CERTAINLY appears that Dorothy Wordsworth was the woman behind the man. In this case the man was her brother, William Wordsworth. Frances Wilson explores the relationship between brother and sister and the way Dorothy Wordsworth inspired his poetry.

Frances Wilson has taken Dorothy Wordsworth's own Grasmere Journals - the days when they were living in the Lake District - and, has literally, been reading between the lines.

It emerges that Wordsworth depended greatly on his sister and her thoughts about the world around them which were turned into classic poetry.

An interesting study to add to the plethora of Wordsworth books already published. ***
