    One thought on “Selected Poetry of William Wordsworth

    1. Bookdragon Sean on said:

      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 more of his poems I read the more 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 [...]

      ***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-center [...]

      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 more 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 [...]

    5. Pewterbreath on said:

      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 bot [...]

      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 more deep seclusion; and connect The landscape with the quiet of the sky. The day is come when I again repose Here, under this dark sycamore, and view These plots of cottage-ground, these orchard-tufts, [...]

      Selected Poetry of William Wordsworth represents Wordsworth’s prolific output, from the poems first published in Lyrical Ballads in 1798 that changed the face of English poetry to the late “Yarrow Revisited.” Wordsworth’s poetry is celebrated for its deep feeling, its use of ordinary speech, the love of nature it expresses, and its representation of commonplace things and

      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."

      Touching, Timeless & Beautiful! One Of The Greatest Poets!

    10. Mont on said:

      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 st [...]

    11. Daniel Schechtel on said:

      Hermoso libro, una genial recopilación de grandes poemas, muy íntimos, emotivos, musicales, pastorales. Historias que conmueven, imágenes de paisajes y de quietud rural, momentos del día 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 el [...]

      “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 [...]

    13. Dewey on said:

      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 t [...]

      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 s [...]

    15. Andres on said:

      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"

    16. I.W.Toole on said:

      No niego el talento que tiene William Wordsworth, y el peso que tiene dentro de la poesía inglesa. Aún así, solo me llevo unos cuantos párrafos de sus poemas a destacar que me gustaron mucho, pero con su exaltación a la naturaleza no logré llegar a sentir conexión con él en sus palabras, capaz debería volver a leerlo.

    17. Angela on said:

      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 more common language for prose and poetry. If the masses can not understand what is being written, why right? For that, I commend him.

    18. Sammy on said:

      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.

    19. Hayden on said:

      I'm still not a huge fan of poetry but at least Wordsworth made it a bit more 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 more of an issue with the collection rather than Wordsworth).

    20. Julian on said:

      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.

    21. Matt De Kam on said:

      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.

      He has quite a few lovely poems. One of my favorite is 'I wandered lonely as a cloud'.

      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!
