William Wordsworth’s verse was the embodiment of the Romantic age, with its evocation of a unifying spirit running through all things. This collection brings together a rich and diverse selection of his works, from the epic autobiographical masterpiece The Prelude to much-loved shorter poems such as `I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud’ and `She Was a Phantom of Delight’.

Alongside his more personal and introspective compositions, poems such as `Lines Written a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey’, `She Dwelt among the Untrodden Ways’ and `The Idiot Boy’ demonstrate, in an era of political and social ferment, the manner in which Wordsworth, together with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, forged a revolutionary new poetic style through the publication of Lyrical Ballads -one that embraced the vernacular and subjects previously deemed unworthy of poetry – and thus changed the literary landscape of England for ever.
