ISBN: 0521472598 "Examination of the links between literary history and science provides valuable new insights for scholars across a range of disciplines. John Wyatt explores the unexpectedly close relationship between William Wordsworth and a group of scientists in the formative years of the new science of geology. Wyatt's study of this personal and intellectual friendship challenges the simplistic opposition between Romantic-literary and scientific-materialist cultures, and shows how discourses were affected by the network of influences between poetry and geology." – Publisher. "This is a straightforward historical study. . . .Wyatt's research is unimpeded by abstract theoretical claims. . . .is a significant contribution to our knowledge of the complex links between poetic and scientific thought in the first half of the nineteenth century in England." – Albion.
