About this title


Francis Jeffrey (1773-1850), founder and editor of the Edinburgh Review and the great reactionary critic of his age, said of The Excursion 'This will never do'. Christabel he famously described as a 'miserable piece of coxcombry and shuffling' and The White Doe as 'the very worst poem we ever saw imprinted in a quarto volume'. This selection of Jeffrey's reviews is an important reminder of the power and cogency of the opposition that Wordsworth and his fellow Lakers had to overcome.
