WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

W.WORDSWORTH

Selected poems

By Roger Sharrock

 

The introduction sets the time and place, expounding on Wordsworth’s early life, his influences and struggles in his personal life.  Pithy explanations that are easy to understand feed one in small, digestible morsels. 

 

Quoting from the Introduction, “The structure of a Wordsworth poem is an organic form growing naturally out of the thought of the poet, related to each stage of the poetic emotion, and fusing together the metrical pattern and the whole complex of sounds and meanings.”

 

This compilation of selected poems by William Wordsworth, is perfect if you are just starting to gain an interest in poetry.
