The relationships of the Lake Poets, Wordsworth, Coleridge and Southey have become a romantic literary myth. The letters and journals of their sisters, wives and daughters form the basis for this illuminating new account of their interconnected lives - their passionate attachments, petty jealousies, and deaths of children - and contribute to a greater understanding of the poets.
