    Wordsworth, Dorothy

    Dorothy Wordsworth (1771-1855) was the younger sister of the poet William Wordsworth. She enjoyed a close companionship with her brother, settling at Dove Cottage, Grasmere with him and his wife, Mary,  and later moving to Rydal Mount. She wrote travel journals and poetry, and has become famous for her posthumously published Grasmere Journal, a fascinating account of daily life, excursions and conversations with literary figures of the time.
