Research 1: The Development of the Sonnet in William Wordsworth
William Wordsworth's sonnets have not received the critical attention they deserve. Therefore, the present study is an attempt to shed more light on how far Wordsworth’s sonnets indicate a significant development in his career as a poet. It aims at explaining how far these sonnets indicate a change in his outlook on life and in his poetic / critical theory, and, thus, explaining how far this change accords with his development in the direction of Conservatism and reveals the existence of a conservative streak which continued to grow in him over the years.
Research 2: Wordsworth's Early Sonnets: A Study in Form
This study aims at identifying the formal varieties of Wordsworth's early sonnets so that it can answer two main questions: (1) How far does Wordsworth depart from (or conform to) the traditional sonnet forms? (2) Does he introduce any innovations, which represent a contribution to the form of the sonnet?
