An exhibition of original manuscripts by William and Dorothy Wordsworth shown alongside those of Matsuo Bashō. This is the first time any manuscripts by William and Dorothy Wordsworth have been lent to public institutions in East Asia for over twenty-five years; and it introduces the work of Dorothy Wordsworth to new audiences in Japan. These internationally significant manuscripts are shown alongside new work by contemporary UK and Japanese artists which has been inspired by the poetry and prose of all three writers.
