Stephen Gill launches his new edition of William Wordsworth: A Life, which follows the adventurous youth who saw life in revolutionary France to the old man who became Poet Laureate. He talks about revisiting this work after nearly three decades, and considers how far his understanding of Wordsworth has changed.

Stephen Gill is Professor Emeritus at Oxford University and Supernumerary Fellow at Lincoln College, Oxford, and a long-serving member of the Wordsworth Trust. His publications include The Salisbury Plain Poems, which inaugurated the Cornell Wordsworth Series, Wordsworth and the Victorians, Wordsworth's Revisitings, and edited collections including William Wordsworth: Selected Poems and William Wordsworth: The Major Works.
