1 PEARLE LECOMPTE I, ANNETTE VALLON - WILLIAM WORDSWORTH'S MISTRESS AND THE MOTHER OF HIS ILLEGITIMATE DAUGHTER
Santa Fe, New Mexico Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is an original typewritten unpublished manuscript titled, "I, Annette Vallon" by Pearle LeCompte. The work in novel form is a fictionalized biography of the woman who was the lover of William Wordsworth, the great Romantic Poet. She also bore his illegitimate daughter. Research suggests the work was created in the 1930 or 1940s, has an introduction of 13 pages and 449 pages numbered in pencil. The title page states 135,000 words. The author was very involved in the literary arts and theatre and in the education thereof. In 1931 her book 'Dramatics' was published. Upon retiring and moving to Santa Fe, she researched the supremely interesting ongoing relationship between Wordsworth and Annette Vallon who bore him a child and raised it. Oddly Wordsworth, though considered the greatest romantic poet of his time was not the greatest romancer in his life and it is this relationship that seems to have broken the mould in that respect. Testament to this may be the fact that much of the evidence and history was destroyed or buried by families and authorities according to the extensive explanation in the forward. This biographical novel is La Compte's attempt to vindicate Annette's life. Research finds that Ms. Le Compte is honored by Pearle Le Compte Theatre Scholarship for Western Illinois University. A few loose pages but otherwise VG.
