Five Long Winters

John Bugg

Stanford University Press

The Afterword examines the change in the national mood occasioned by the approach of the Peace of Amiens and the resignation of Pitt. With special attention to how Wordsworth in particular wrote about this change, it considers the turn to the nineteenth century less as a rupture in the legacy of political repression than as a brief abeyance, in which writers felt that a freer cultural scene was emerging.

Keywords:   William Pitt, Wordsworth, Amiens, peace, repression
