Poetry Circle: William Wordsworth
7:00 PM

William Wordsworth (1770 – 1850) was a major English Romantic poet who became Britain's poet laureate from 1843 until his death. His most famous work, The Prelude, is considered by many to be the crowning achievement of English romanticism. In it Wordsworth writes on the need for “common speech” within poems and argues against the hierarchy of the period which valued epic poetry above the lyric. The poem, revised numerous times and published posthumously, chronicles the spiritual life of the poet and marks the birth of a new genre of poetry. Registration is suggested.
