    1. Our impulse from a vernal woodMay teach you more of man, Of moral evil and of good,Than all the sages can.The entry for Wordsworth in my copy of The New Lifetime Reading Plan is easily the funniest in the book. Clifton Fadiman was obviously not fond of this verdant poet: “Wordsworth, who never understood how to cut things short, persisted to his eightieth year. Of these years only the first half were, from posterity’s viewpoint, worth living.” According to Fadiman, the large majority of Wo [...]



    2. A wonderful collection of poems from one of the true masters of the romantic period, and all of it fit neatly in my pocket. It's refreshing to listen to the structured rhythmic styles for a change with a focus on the natural setting and childhood of the poet himself (though his roses were remembered with rose lenses.)



    3. Not a book meant for speed reading, though I admit some poems I skimmed rather than lingered. Some seemed familiar. Wordsworth would not rank in my top ten list of favorite poets, though I have yet to develop that list. Some favorite lines: I wandered lonely as a cloud. The Child is father of the man. The world is too much with us, late and soon. One morning, raw it was and wet. Up! up! my friend and quit your books.


    4. I read this in bits. Wordsworth is beautiful and yet, somehow, amusing since I always remember the image of him my lit teacher (also the sponsor of my highschools magic the gathering club I must note), hiking through the mountains with Dorthy, his sister. I always got a giggle out of that.
