    Between andhe produced a steady stream of magnificent works, but little of his work over the last four decades of his life matters greatly. Like the American Thoreau, his philosophy was one rooted in simplicity of living, and like Thoreau, he sought always to practice it. Later in stanza 4, the speaker explains why remembering the beauties of nature can cause him to feel tranquil. As Wordsworth grew older, he decided he might like to become a lawyer.

    The excitement in his life took place on the level of intellect; he found ideas more exciting than any other thing. Wordsworth's only sister, Dorothy was one year his junior. For more details click here. During his vacations, he spent his time visiting his former landlady at Hawkshead and, with his sister Dorothy, covering some of Derbyshire and Yorkshire on foot.

    The first collected edition of his poems appeared in ; five more editions followed between then and What Gill does through his vast myriad of sources is draw out a personality in Wordsworth that we expect i. His youthful religious skepticism was resolved, and he embraced the established church. I was disappointed that it had not improved in appearance as to size, nor had it acquired anything of the majesty of age, which, even though less perhaps than any other tree, the larch sometimes does. The associations between the Coleridges, the Wordsworths, and the moon in the sky: this is an inspiration for myself, in that I would like to read more about this poetical connection, and there may well be more to say on the subject. As Wordsworth grew older, he decided he might like to become a lawyer.

A Concordance to the Poems of William Wordsworth book

XIX 'O Martyr 'stablished in virginity! He received honorary degrees from Durham and Oxford And of course, Coleridge plays his own significant role in the biography.

It was of immense size, and threw out arms that struck into the soil, like those of the banyan-tree, and rose again from it. Thus was silenced one of the noblest voices of Romantic times and of all times. Although their works display the characteristics of Romantic poetry, they pre-date Wordsworth and Coleridge, whose work is considered the beginning of British Romantic literature.

Some silent laws our hearts will make, Which they shall long obey: We for the year to come may take Our temper from to-day. X 'This little Child, while in the school he sate His Primer conning with an earnest cheer, The whilst the rest their anthem-book repeat The 'Alma Redemptoris' did he hear; And as he durst he drew him near and near, And hearkened to the words and to the note, Till the first verse he learned it all by rote.

What I think is an achievement in particular here is that Wordsworth is — as Gill himself acknowledges — known for being perhaps more reserved and inscrutable than the enthusiastic and soul-baring Coleridge.

My admiration of this biography is centred on how Gill consistently looks forward, even in chapter 1, to the illustrious verses of and beyond, intertwining poetics with lived experience in a way any literary biography should prioritise. VIII 'Among these children was a Widow's son, A little scholar, scarcely seven years old, Who day by day unto this school hath gone, And eke, when he the image did behold Of Jesu's Mother, as he had been told, This Child was wont to kneel adown and say 'Ave Marie,' as he goeth by the way.

The following year, on the death of Southey, he was appointed Poet Laureate. Note the descriptive details.

He lodged and boarded with a childless landlady, and she seems to have come in many ways to replace his lost mother in his affections.

William appears to have been particularly disliked by master and servant alike. XXXI ''Wherefore I sing, nor can from song refrain, In honour of that blissful Maiden free, Till from my tongue off-taken is the grain; And after that thus said she unto me; 'My little Child, then will I come for thee Soon as the grain from off thy tongue they take: Be not dismayed, I will not thee forsake!

Ina favorite brother drowned at sea, and this event shocked the poet. Cover has gold-coloured gilt title, spine has gold gilt floral design. In the opening lines of the poem, the speaker states that after five years he has returned to Tintern Abbey.

Thus what the verse tells us about the man, and what the man tells us about the verse, is explored in scholarly detail throughout. Stanza 5: The speaker directly addresses his sister presumably Wordsworth and his sister Dorothyhoping that she also will recognize both the beauty and the spiritual presence in nature.

Stanza 1 lines 1—22 : the speaker describes the beautiful scene. II 'Wherefore in praise, the worthiest that I may, Jesu! For I have learned To look on nature, not as in the hour Of thoughtless youth; but hearing oftentimes The still, sad music of humanity, Nor harsh nor grating, though of ample power To chasten and subdue.
