A reader who wants to know more about Wordsworth’s relations with several of his more important contemporaries will encounter fewer difficulties in determining what Wordsworth thought of them than in learning what they thought of Wordsworth. We know a great deal about Wordsworth’s opinions, which can almost be charted on a daily basis throughout his adult years. But there is less in the way of interviews and reminiscences for at least four major figures (not to mention scores of less-prominent men and women who met him on various occasions) than both scholars and general readers would like to have.
