Overview

William Wordsworth (1770-1850) was a major English romantic poet who, with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, helped launch the Romantic Age in English literature with their 1798 joint publication, Lyrical Ballads. Wordsworth's masterpiece is generally considered to be The Prelude, an autobiographical poem of his early years that was revised and expanded a number of times. It was never published during his lifetime, and was only given the title after his death. Up until this time it was generally known as the poem "to Coleridge". The year 1793 saw Wordsworth's first published poetry with the collections An Evening Walk and Descriptive Sketches. In 1807, his Poems in Two Volumes were published. Wordsworth had for years been making plans to write a long philosophical poem in three parts, which he intended to call The Recluse. In 1814 he published The Excursion as the second part of The Recluse. Wordsworth was England's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850. His other works include: Description of the Scenery of the Lakes (1810), Peter Bell (1819), The Waggoner (1819) and Yarrow Revisited (1835).
