In the third book of The Prelude Wordsworth recorded his reactions to life at Cambridge and his changing attitude toward his studies. During his last summer as an undergraduate, he and his college friend Robert Jones-much influenced by William Coxe’s Sketches of the Natural, Civil, and Political State of Swisserland (1779)-decided to make a tour of the Alps, departing from Dover on July 13, 1790. Wordsworth continued to write poetry with energy and passion over the next several years, and while fashionable critics such as Francis Jeffrey continued to snipe, his reputation and finances slowly improved.

Wordsworth spent most of his adult life in the Lake District with his sister Dorothy and his wife Mary, by. .The Poetry is in the pity'. All of his important poems were written in just over a year, and Dulce et Decorum Est, .

Wordsworth spent most of his adult life in the Lake District with his sister Dorothy and his wife Mary, by whom he had four children. William Wordsworth is the foremost of the English Romantic poets. Futility and Anthem for Doomed Youth still have an astonishing power to move the reader. Owen pointed out that 'All a poet can do today is to warn.

A valuable addition to Wordsworth studies.

Here Wordsworth wrote many of his most famous poems. Wordsworth's new duties did not prevent him from writing poetry, and in 1814 part of The Recluse, planned some fifteen years earlier with Coleridge, was finally published. Wordsworth loved and drew inspiration from this landscape of the Lake District, his home. Entitled The Excursion, this long blank verse poem was intended to be the second of three parts of The Recluse.

Wordsworth, born in his beloved Lake District, was the son of an attorney. Returning to England he wrote, and left unpublished, his Letter to the Bishop. He went to school first at Penrith and then at Hawkshead Grammar school before studying, from 1787, at St John's College, Cambridge - all of which periods were later to be described vividly in The Prelude. In 1790 he went with friends on a walking tour to France, the Alps and Italy, before arriving in France where Wordsworth was to spend the next year.

His poetry demonstrates how a poet must be a sharp perceptive observer of the complexity of the human condition

His poetry demonstrates how a poet must be a sharp perceptive observer of the complexity of the human condition. Perhaps his most moving poetry was written to express his feelings for his wife, the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, in which he deals in a very 'modern' way with the uncomfortable fact that we can never quite bridge the gap between ourselves and the people we love. Paul Wright's detailed introductions place Byron's colourful life and work within their broader social and political contexts, and demonstrate that Byron both fostered and critiqued the notorious 'Byronic myth' of heroic adventure, political action and sexual scandal.

Wordsworth made his debut as a writer in 1787 when he published a sonnet in The European Magazine. However, he supported her and his daughter as best he could in later life. The Reign of Terror left Wordsworth thoroughly disillusioned with the French Revolution and the outbreak of armed hostilities between Britain and France prevented him from seeing Annette and his daughter for some years. With the Peace of Amiens again allowing travel to France, in 1802 Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy visited Annette and Caroline in Calais.

The main themes of his poetry are love and friendship, man and nature (man is the son of nature and the worker in it, he feeds and generates from it), clashes of personality and people with public violence and evil. The Patriotic spirit of national pride inspires Burns's poetry, and in the native song folklore he finds an inexhaustible source of poetic images, themes and motives. Burns' name is associated with a special form of the stanza: AAABAB with shortened fourth and sixth lines.

However, his life would continue to be molded by life’s events. While he was attending Hawkshead School, his father died also. Wordsworth was left, along with his brothers and sisters, as orphans. He went on to study in Cambridge at St. John’s College. A Gravestone Upon The Floor In The Cloisters Of Worcester Cathedral by William Wordsworth. Many consider The Prelude to be his most famous work, and it is also thought to be one of the greatest achievements in Romantic English literature.
