Celebrating Wordsworth during COVID
Special Collections’ exhibit commemorating the 250th anniversary of the birth of William Wordsworth is now open to the public! Though postponed from Wordsworth’s actual birth month of April due to COVID precautions, the exhibit is part of a worldwide network of events (learn more at http://wordsworth250.org).
The Special Collections exhibit, “Wordsworth at BYU,” was curated by Dr. Paul Westover and students in his English 374 course, “Romanticism and Memory.” It features books and items from BYU’s Rowe Collection of William Wordsworth and shows the impact Wordsworth has had at BYU and in the culture of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
“Wordsworth at BYU” is up through the end of October in Special Collections’ reading room. Can’t come to campus? Check out the students’ work at https://wordsworth250.byu.edu/.
