Critical Annotation

The Poetry of the Lakes is a slender anthology of poems about the Lake District. For the editors of the volume, it is no surprise that the region has inspired so many artists and authors: they describe the Lake District as otherworldly and irresistible. The collection features work by “many poets, some world renowned, some lesser-known, but all united in their love of the Lakes” (1). Among these are Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey, and Christopher North, but pride of place is reserved for William Wordsworth, “the greatest of all the Lakeland poets” (1). In the preface, the editors express the hope that their selection of poems will offer “a rewarding glimpse” of the poet’s thoughts “whilst he lived here with his dear family and friends and amongst his beloved lakes and mountains” (1). Small, black-and-white illustrations appear below some of the poems. Most depict the familiar lakes, mountains, and valleys, but there are several impressions of flowers as well, and some generic, decorative lines. The SFU LDC copy is in excellent condition, bound in yellow paper. A price tag on the back cover reads “75p.”
