While outwardly a review of this book by Southey, Juliet Barker’s biography of Wordsworth says, p. 231, that this review has a lot of criticism of Lyrical Ballads and Wordsworth’s work, without naming him. It’s an attack on their “avant garde-ness.”

I especially used this to identify biographies. I found the Barker biography here. I also used it to read about Prelude.

The first biography I read. It was OK, but I liked Juliet Barker’s better, though it was much longer.
