Dorothy Wordsworth and the Coleorton Collection

Dorothy Wordsworth’s writings about the Lake District are preserved in the Coleorton Collection at the Morgan, a unique collection of manuscripts and letters that documents the long and fruitful friendship between the Lake Poets and the patrons and art collectors Sir George and Lady Margaret Beaumont. Join Sal Robinson, Assistant Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts, for an introduction to highlights of the collection, with a particular focus on Dorothy’s account of a weeklong hike that she and William Wordsworth took in November 1805 around Ullswater, the second largest lake in the region.
