One of the great untold love stories in English literature is the love affair between a young British poet, William Wordsworth (1770-1850), and the mysterious 17-year-old Lucy Sims.
Lucy was the subject of the poet’s famous Lucy poems, a series of five poems composed by Wordsworth that are credited with ushering in the Age of Romanticism in English Literature.
To this day Lucy remains a subject of debate among literary scholars. Who was she? Where did she come from? Was she a compilation of William’s sister, Dorothy, and a friend? Or, was she a figment of the poet’s imagination? Our story, based upon true characters and events, gives us a fictionalized answer to William Wordsworth’s forbidden love affair.
