William Wordsworth [electronic resource]: William and Dorothy

Granada Media (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
A sensitive and insightful program about the poetry of William Wordsworth and the landscape and personality that lay behind and within it. With David Warner playing Wordsworth, this dramatization by Ken Russell presents some of the major poems against the background of Wordsworth country, and shows us his intense and troubled relationship with his talented sister Dorothy, who is the subject (or object) of many poems and whose specter and editorial influence hover over many others.
