Abstract
This thesis reexamines Dorothy Wordsworth's poetry, narratives, and travel writing that have been obscured from the Romantic canon and neglected by scholars. Dorothy cultivates a poetic voice, not in the domestic sphere, but in the natural world, and she creates a literary tradition that challenges and evokes a questioning of "Wordsworthian poetics".
