    One thought on “Selected Poetry of William Wordsworth”

    1. Over the last few years I have been very unfair to Wordsworth I ve avoided him when possible because many of his poems are overly sentimental and just ponder over his conception of nature However, the of his poems I read the complex his ideas become his words go beyond simple nature admiration, and push into the realms of environmentalist thought I especially like the idea of humanity s place on earth in the poem Brothers Wordsworth suggests that we are all mere tourists Everything he uses in [...]

    2. Updated on April 29th, see below I can t help it if my heart doesn t leap with joy with Wordsworth s respectful and magisterial poems I feel some kind of guilty distance with his realistic and moderated exultation of Nature, his aspirations towards perfection and his Odes full of bucolic and idealized countryside There are some brilliant stanzas though which show the almost anecdotal wonders of an apparently monotonous life, but still I find them lacking in originality and too self centered in t [...]

    4. I read a selection of the poems found in this book Isn t the cover gorgeous I bought this Kindle version, but I wish I could have bought the book Maybe I ll sneak out to Barnes and Noble sometime and try to find it.You know, I appreciate William Wordsworth much now than I did in college I never thought of Wordsworth as one of my favorite poets I like Emily Dickinson and Frost plus others But, I think he might move up a bit on my list of favorites I like the rapturous emotion in his poems, and I [...]

    5. Wordsworth is a guilty dislike for me So many poets don t only like him but credit him with their very inspiration as to what poetry is and should be Last summer I endeavored to make peace with Wordsworth once and for all I skipped the juvenelia, and went straight for the young Wordsworth My complaints I can find very quickly many many poems about A man wandering unhappy, ill at ease, or at least lonely he encounters daffodils a leech gatherer nature s primal majesty and whatever was bothering h [...]

    6. Tintern AbbeyFive years have past five summers, with the length Of five long winters and again I hear These waters, rolling from their mountain springs With a sweet inland murmur Once again Do I behold these steep and lofty cliffs, Which on a wild secluded scene impress Thoughts of deep seclusion and connect The landscape with the quiet of the sky The day is come when I again repose Here, under this dark syca, and view These plots of cottage ground, these orchard tufts, Which, at this season, w [...]

    8. Read this for my club, actually just an assortment of his poetry I love nature, so I enjoyed his perspective My favorite was I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.

    9. Like several other romantic poets, William Wordsworth is a paradox In much of his best poetry his aim was to celebrate the changeless things in nature and man Yet writes with a strange boldness and originality that are bracing or unsettling depending upon how willing they we to accept a new kind of poetry With dismay, I see how under appreciated Wordsworth is on GR and the rather snooty reaction to genius If he no longer startles us that is partly because so many later poets have made his strate [...]

    10. Hermoso libro, una genial recopilaci n de grandes poemas, muy ntimos, emotivos, musicales, pastorales Historias que conmueven, im genes de paisajes y de quietud rural, momentos del d a y de la naturaleza, paz y tranquilidad, pasados emotivos No todos los poemas me gustaron por igual Pero me ha logrado emocionar, Wordsworth, hasta hacerse querer He dejado este libro en el viejo continente antes de venirme para Argentina, y no tengo los poemas a mano para expresar mi amor por varios de ellos No te [...]

    11. That men, least sensitive, see, hear, perceiveAnd cannot choose but feel Yes, if you re going to read Wordsworth you re going to have to stomach stuff like the above I read the entirety of the Prelude over the course of two years At times I could not bear to read another stanza To me, the poem veered wildly between passages of stunning beauty and clarity, longwinded lectures about politics, quaint discourses on Man and the Ideal, and a few others motifs I could distill the situation of the Prelu [...]

    12. Anybody with the desire of looking at a sizeable fraction of the state of the English language s existence would be doing themselves a disservice by not reading William Wordsworth I sincerely think that this guy was incapable of a poetic imperfection Though intimidating at times after all, when have a dozen ten page poems not been intimidating , the pleasure of reading one masterpiece after another eventually compensates Plus, Wordsworth is the type of poet best understood when given time to rea [...]

    13. Although he s sometimes seen as ultra conventional, ftmp, I think an appropriate musical analog to Wordsworth s work might be the music of Schubert, or, especially, Brahms which I ve continually found to be very cutting edge just beneath the surface of pop accessibility Wordsworth was audacious enough, for example, to write an epic conversation poem, the subject of which was his own mind The Prelude , his masterpiece portions of which are not included in this edition, btw, which sucks several bu [...]

    14. Not much to say, his stylish writing and unique view of the main topics in life love, hate, honor, etc is just overwhelming She was a phantom of delightWhen first she gleamed upon my sight A lovely Apparition, sentTo be a moment s ornament Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair Like Twilight s, too, her dusky hair But all things else about her drawnFrom Maytime and the cheerful DawnA dancing Shape, an Image Gay,To haunt, to startle, and waylay I suggest to read Character of the Happy Warrior

    15. No niego el talento que tiene William Wordsworth, y el peso que tiene dentro de la poes a inglesa A n as , solo me llevo unos cuantos p rrafos de sus poemas a destacar que me gustaron mucho, pero con su exaltaci n a la naturaleza no logr llegar a sentir conexi n con l en sus palabras, capaz deber a volver a leerlo.

    16. A notable writer, like Blake, from the British Romantic Period I feel inept to properly review his work for what it is worth It was a good read to discuss for class, because I was able to understand the pieces on a deeper level He did help the movement to a common language for prose and poetry If the masses can not understand what is being written, why right For that, I commend him.

    17. One of my top dozen pre WWII poets in the English language, alongside Shakespeare, Dryden, Keats, Emerson, Wadsworth Longfellow, Whitman, Dickinson, Tennyson, Christina Rossetti, Yeats, and Wallace Stevens.

    18. I m still not a huge fan of poetry but at least Wordsworth made it a bit enjoyable than Pope I loved The Ruined Cottage and The Brothers, however I did find some of the poems slightly repetitive but I think that might be of an issue with the collection rather than Wordsworth.

    19. A very good selection of Wordsworth Lucy Gray is my instant favorite Wordsworth poem His style reminds me of a peaceful countryside I like his narrative poems but only the short ones.

    20. Wordsworth is one of my favorites Daffodils is one of the best The world is too much with us My heart leaps up etc, etc.

    21. Loved Composed upon Westminster Bridge, London 1802, Lines Written in Early Spring, The World is Too Much with Us I didn t like Idiot Boy

    22. As a non English native speaker, it s pretty challenging to read English poetry However, Wordsworth is one of those poets who unfolded the world in his imagery regardless of the language barrier
