William Wordsworth is chiefly remembered as one of the `Lake Poets'. Yet he was also one of the founders of English Romanticism, a writer whose early revolutionary fervor imbued his verse and his ideals.
Much of Wordsworth's work was inspired by nature, but to a style rich in lyrical imagery he brought a deep interest in liberal humanitarianism and a profound concern for the lives, habits and speech of ordinary people, especially country people.
This pocket-sized collection includes: `I wandered lonely as a cloud' (`Daffodils'), `Ode. Intimations of Immortality', `Character of the Happy Warrior', `The Solitary Reaper', `To a Sky-Lark', `Tintern Abbey', and extracts from `The Prelude'.
