About this book
"Lyrical Ballads" is one of the most important collections of poetry ever published, and this exciting new book is the only text to combine the first edition of 1798 with the enlarged edition of 1802 - showing how the collection developed against the changing political situation of the time.
Wordsworth and Coleridge's joint collection of poems has often been singled out as the founding text of English Romanticism. This is the only edition to print both the original 1798 collection and the expanded 1802 edition, with Wordsworth's famous Preface. It includes important letters, a wide-ranging introduction and generous notes.
