The aim of this book is "to interpret the poems, by bringing out the singularly close connection between them, and the district of the English lakes, and by explaining Wordsworth's numerous allusions to the locality. It aims at being a guide to the Poems, as much as to the District; and to the District, only in so far as it is reflected in, and interpreted by, the Poems."
