William Wordsworth

A founding father of the Romantic movement in English poetry, few writers have changed the course of literary history as emphatically as William Wordsworth (1770-1850). Over a long career, Wordsworth’s poetic output was prodigious, encompassing a wide variety of forms and styles. The selection of poems offered on this recording includes sonnets and lyrical pieces, his longer masterpieces ‘Tintern Abbey’ and ‘Intimations of Immortality’ and extracts from ‘The Prelude’ in which he endeavoured to trace the development of his own mind.
