John Wilson (1785-1854) came to be best known in Romantic contexts for his role as contributor to the notorious Blackwood's Magazine, but was also closely involved with Lakes literary circles. During the years spent at Elleray, his estate near the shores of Windermere, Wilson engaged wholeheartedly with what the lakes offered in physical, social, emotional and literary terms and cultivated an identity for himself as Lake Poet. This bicentenary collection is the first complete edition of Wilson's Lake Poems to be published and allows readers to encounter these poems as a distinct body of work for the first time. It also gives us access to another voice from within the extended 'Lake School'. The volume includes suggestions for further reading, editorial notes on the poems, and an introductory essay. The latter provides background on Wilson's involvement with Lakes literary circles and discusses his poetry in relation to this context.

Edited and introduced by Penny Bradshaw, University of Cumbria, UK.
