A friend of William Wordsworth, John Peace (1785-1861), left striking marginal comments in his copy of the original edition of Lyrical Ballads (1798).  These annotations promise to enhance studies of marginalia, histories of reading, and discussions of the affective potential of print in the nineteenth century. Throughout his copy of Lyrical Ballads, and culminating in the margins of “Tintern Abbey,” Peace’s annotations become testaments to friendship if not manuscript memorials when versions of sympathy, whether rooted in imaginative abstraction or printed materiality, facilitate emotional expression through the shifting referential terms of lyrical deixis.
