Thoughts, etc.

"Five years of sickness & of pain
This weary frame has travelled oer
But God is good & once again
I rest upon a tranquil shore"
Today on the OUPblog a poem by Dorothy Wordsworth has been published for the *first time*, with kind permission of The Wordsworth Trust. Very excited here at OUP! (via Heaney, the Wordsworths, and wonders of the everyday | OUPblog)

The 18th century novelist Laurence Sterne died on 18 March 1768. During a recent trip into the bowels of our out of print library in Oxford, we came across the 1928 Oxford World’s Classics edition of his novel A Sentimental Journey, which included an introduction by none other than Virginia Woolf. In it, Woolf discusses the maturity of Sterne’s writing, his distinctive style, the ways he shifted perspective, and his ability to shock. You can read the full introduction on the OUPblog.

I love both of these books.
