The Grasmere and Alfoxden Journals
Dorothy Wordsworths journals are a unique record of her life with her brother William, at the time when he was at the height of his poetic powers. Invaluable for the insight they give into the daily life of the poet and his friendship with Coleridge.
The Grasmere Journal was begun at Dove Cottage in May 1800 and was kept for three years. The earlier Alfoxden Journal was written during 1797-8, when the Wordsworths were living near Coleridge in Somerset.
