The Romantic Age was a period of literary and artistic movement that swept through Europe during the late 18th to early 19th century. It was a time of intense emotions, individualism, and a longing for freedom and nature. One of the most significant figures of this era was William Wordsworth, an English poet who became known as one of the founders of Romantic poetry. In this article, we will explore some of the very best poems written by Wordsworth and delve into the essence of his work.

Daffodils - A Glimpse of Nature's Beauty

Among Wordsworth's most famous works, "Daffodils" captures the essence of Romanticism. The poem takes us on a journey through a field of bright yellow daffodils, invoking a deep sense of joy and wonder. Wordsworth's vivid descriptions awaken our senses and transport us to this serene setting, allowing us to experience the beauty of nature firsthand. The poem serves as a reminder of the power of nature in uplifting our spirits and connecting us to something greater than ourselves.

The Prelude - An Autobiographical Reflection

"The Prelude" is Wordsworth's autobiographical epic, considered by many as his magnum opus. This lengthy poem reflects on his childhood experiences and the development of his poetic abilities. Wordsworth delves into themes of memory, imagination, and the transformative power of nature, painting a picture of his growth as a poet and as an individual. "The Prelude" is an introspective and thought-provoking work that offers insights into Wordsworth's inner world and his deep connection with nature.

Ode: Intimations of Immortality - Contemplation of Life and Death

In "Ode: Intimations of Immortality," Wordsworth explores the themes of mortality, loss, and the fleeting nature of human existence.

'To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour' William Blake

William Blake was a poet and artist. Born in Soho in the eighteenth century, the son of a shopkeeper, he is now acclaimed as a radical left-field artist. Most recently, the Tate held an exhibition of his work: 'Magnificent ... reveal's Blake's vision at its most vivid and strange' GUARDIAN

Blake's written work was equally vivid. A major poet of the Romantic age, the full range of his poetry includes the joyful and sorrowful, the childlike and complex - and illustrates his original and prophetic vision. Considered mad by contemporaries for his idiosyncratic opinions, he is now revered for the depth of his poetry and art, and the philosophical undercurrents intrinsic to all his creative work.

'If the Sun and Moon should ever doubt, they'd immediately go out'

'The imagination is not a state; it is the human existence itself'
