Wordsworth in a New Light

Excerpt

THE subject of this lecture may require some explanation, perhaps some apology. It is one of those that may be called unpleasant, since it concerns the moral transgression of a great and revered poet. Yet it by no means pretends to come as a revelation. The fact itself is now known to most readers. It has been stated and commented upon in books, reviews, and newspapers. The reading public has in recent years been informed how William Wordsworth, while he lived in France in 1792, fell in love with a French lady called Annette Vallon and had by her a daughter, to whom he gave his name, though he never would or could marry the mother.
