Loneliness and Communion: A Study of Wordsworth's Thought and Experience
1973 0-7734-0339-6
Shows the underlying pattern of duality in Wordsworth's thought. Wordsworth used ideas as he used language and perception in order to manipulate contradictory needs, to adjust and maintain the inner conflict between total autonomy and restraining reality, an inner conflict which, in the last analysis, he chose not to resolve.
