Doro

Must be about a thousand times more talented than her all too well remembered brother She wrote a travel memoir that is so perfectly in the Picturesque style that it’s the definition of the genre.

I recently found this sweet little Oxford University Press 1958 edition of some of her journals. It includes the Grasmere Journals.┬áIt’s pocket! And has “Purchased at Wordsworth’s Cottage Grasmere” stamped on the flyleaf.

Ah, Doro’s slanting woods of an unvarying brown and the half dead sound of the near sheep-bell.
