Home » » Who is Dorothy?

Dorothy was the younger sister of the poet, William Wordsworth. Here eyes were wild and startling and hurried in their motion. She was Wordsworth’s constant companion, his housekeeper, his secretary, his comforter and a source of his poetic inspiration. There is a mutual love and friendship between them. She loved his brother more deeply than any one else. They grew together in their childhood and naturally her presence carried him back to the days of childhood. 

When Wordsworth visited Tintern Abbey in the Wye valley for the second time in 1798, she accompanied him. In the poem Tintern Abbey the poet refers to her as the ‘dearest friend’. Her voice and wild eyes remind the poet of those pleasure which once derived  from the beautiful objects of Nature in the days of his youth.
