In response to:
The Greatness of Wordsworth from the January 28, 1965 issue
To The Editors:
I appreciate the kind reference to me in Christopher Ricks’s review of Geoffrey Hartman’s Wordsworth’s Poetry in your issue of January 28. It is true that I went wrong, in the original edition of my book The Poetry of Experience, on the physical details of the rowing incident in The Prelude. I want to point out that these details have been corrected in the paperback edition of my book published by Norton in 1963.
