The Poetry of William WordsworthMrs. Cumberland
To understand the importance of nature as a source of comfort and inspiration in Wordsworth’s poetry
To recognize elements and techniques of romantic poetry
Use language of prose, “the language really spoken by men” ( but he means to use “a selection” of real language as befits his purpose, not to present “the vulgarity and meanness of ordinary life”
Write in such a way as to create in his readers the same passions he felt in composing his poetry
“choose incidents and situations from common life” and present “the essential passions of the heart”
Avoid personification of abstract ideas
Present general truths of human life- “the great and universal passions of men”- not specific local matters
