Orth I had some moments of oubt about this one Frances Wilson writes with vast assurance about the murky epths of Dorothy Wordsworth s mind even while admitting that Dorothy herself had no idea what was going on there In a sense she s trying to have it both ways she portrays Dorothy as an unstable permeable membrane of a person an unstable permeable membrane of a person woman without a clear identity and yet she gives Dorothy a vivid and legible self throughout the book she speculates in great etail about what exactly D was thinking and feeling She s very sure of herself At many places in the text she gets uite snippy about the speculations of previous biographers of the Wordsworths as if only she has the psychological penetration to comprehend these tangled relationships of than 200 years ago But perhaps she oes Her scholarship is impressive she presents some new sources of impressive She presents some new sources of about Dorothy and she weaves a great tangle of letters journals poetry and prose from Dorothy and the Wordsworths whole circle of family friends and enemies into a compelling tapestry of D s everyday life This is her job as biographer to bring a life to life and she oes it She convinces me that she has good evidence for her version of D s life mostly her inner life So I ecided to cast my reservations aside and read the book like a novel to experience it as I would a movie based on D s Grasmere journals ie to give Wilson some leeway and uit holding her feet to the fire After all there s no proving she s wrong There s no proving she s right either of course So I went along for the ride She s a fine writer who can build a story out of mere fragments and I admire that I ll be going to Grasmere again this September and I ll see it through new eyes Not Dorothy s but she ll be tenderly in my mind I bought this book from a second hand book seller intrigued to read of the story of Dorothy Wordsworth and her relationship with her brother William
