An original copy of William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Lyrical Ballads has a new companion.
The Guardian reports that last week, a leather-bound copy of Refuge from the Ravens: New Lyrical Ballads for the 21st Century — which reimagines the original work — was presented to the Wordsworth Grasmere in England.
Its authors are people who have experienced homelessness, just like the characters depicted in the original version.
You can read more about the Refuge from the Ravens exhibit, which will be up though December 31, and about some of the contributors in the Guardian.
