UK Kirkus Review » In his Introduction, Professor Gill tells us this book originated in his previous work, an acclaimed biography Wordsworth: A Life (1989) so we are warned not to expect this to be another study of either the poetry or the well chronicled 'life'. Instead, in a fascinating departure, Professor Gill examines the emergence of Wordsworth as an icon, a movement which gained momentum during the last 25 years of his life when his creative powers were indisputably waning and has never looked set to unravel. Avoiding the pitfall of being overly anecdotal, the book nevertheless draws on a great deal of individual testimony. Wordsworth's reputation was constructed and transmitted not only by 'literary giants' but also by armies of critics, scholars, publishers and lay readers who invoked both the life and the poetry for myriad causes: the preacher who invokes 'Tintern Abbey' from the pulpit, the publisher who spots a niche in the gift book market. An invaluable contribution to literary history. (Kirkus UK)
