|Wordsworth Variorum Archive|
The Wordsworth Variorum Archive (WVA) is a digital
archive of the poetry of William Wordsworth. The archive makes available
Wordsworth's poetry as it was originally published, arranged by published
volume. At present, twelve such volumes are available.
The WVA provides the following tools:
First edition texts have been used as sources. For more on the texts used as sources, click on "About the Texts."

January 5, 2007: Concordances for Lyrical Ballads, 1800 and Collected Poems, 1815 repaired (they work now and they didn't quite work before)
Legal Disclaimer (or why I didn't become a lawyer)
Please note that the WVA is at present more digital curiosity ("something evermore about to be"?) than scholarly resource. A recent independent review of the texts in the archive identified some textual errors. In short, until further notice (i.e. legions of graduate students doing my work for me) the accuracy of the texts found on the WVA should be verified against either original published volumes or an appropriate scholarly edition.
