Wordsworth (1770-1850) was known for his worship of nature, his early sympathy with democracy and the lives and common speech of the common people. He was one of the early leaders of the Romantic Poetics and was particularly interested instituting a reform in the language of poetic diction. In his early youth, he was influenced by the work of Rousseau and William Godwin and enthusiastically supported the French Revolution. Wordsworth was appointed poet laureate of England in 1843, succeeding Robert Southey. Only 500 copies of this work were printed. This early volume includes Wordsworth's most beloved poems, including "She was a Phantom of delight", "To A Skylark", "Resolution and Independence", "The world is too much with us.", "It is a beauteous evening, calm and free", "The Solitary Reaper", "My heart leaps up when I behold.", "I wandered lonely as a cloud.", and his great "Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood".
