The pleasure of reading Wordsworth,
This review is from: The Major Works: Including The Prelude (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
Wordsworth is a beloved writer of mine. I love his passionate and direct descriptions of Nature, his reflective calm, his deep moral sense, his simplicity and beauty of language. I love the thoughtfulness of his poetry, and its music.
His lines are memorable lines and they evoke sensations sweet felt in the heart. He is a poet who brings with him a sense of both the sublime and the simple combined.
There are of course many non- memorable lines and many poems which seem at times to be versified prose. But in the best Wordsworth in the great Wordsworth there is the Literature which makes us Love Life More.
At some point I think each and every reader can be uplifted by this great poetic soul.
