Wordsworth: Poems
Wordsworth: Poems | William Wordsworth
18 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
Of all the lasting innovations that William Wordsworth (1770-1850) brought to our literature, it is his discovery of nature and his fresh vision of human lives in the context of nature that have most influenced our cultural climate. Here, collected in this volume, are Wordsworth s finest works, some of the most beautiful poems ever written: from the famous lyrical ballads, including The Tables Turned and Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey, to the sonnets and narrative poems, to excerpts from his magnum opus, The Preludes. By turning away from mythological subjects and artificial diction toward the life and language around him, Wordsworth acquired for poetry the strength and new sources of inspiration that have allowed it to survive and flourish in the modern world."

Lcsmcat So can we take from this that Wordsworth was particularly calm? 4mo
SharonGoforth @Lcsmcat I think so!! 4mo

wanderinglynn I used cattywampus the other day (because it is such a fun word) & someone had to ask what it meant. 😂 2y
wanderinglynn I also love shenanigans! 😉 2y
tournevis @wanderinglynn It's the only word on the list I did not know! 2y
wanderinglynn @tournevis I think it‘s a more of a Southern US word. We southerners like our old-timey words. 😉 2y
tournevis @wanderinglynn That's what the dictionary said. Not being a Native speaker of English and nit being American, it's not a surprise. 2y

I'm learning how to hand letter! It's so relaxing-- and I can do it while I listen to audiobooks! I'm enjoying it so much, and I'd like to start practicing with slightly higher stakes. Does anyone have any favorite quotes they'd like to have lettered? I'd be happy to send you the result, if you like it!

Lindy Very nice! 3y
jpmcwisemorgan This is awesome! What are you using to learn? A book? Video? Class? 3y
LectricSheep @Lindy Thank you! @jpmcwisemorgan thanks! I bought a book that turned out not to be very helpful-- it was okay for the very basics though. So now I'm just scouring Pinterest and YouTube for fonts and tips. If you (or anyone) have any book or website suggestions, I'd be grateful! 3y

Sue Looks great!! 3y
Faibka if you have time and it's not to much trouble I would love to see this one: "The present moment contains the whole of life" by Thich Nhat Hanh ? 3y
LectricSheep @Faibka Yay! I'd be happy to do it! Maybe I'll try it in a circle, instead of a rectangle? 🤔 3y
Faibka @LectricSheep awesome!! 😄 thanks! 💕💜📚 3y
megt Beautiful! 3y
jpmcwisemorgan @LectricSheep I can hardly draw in a straight line so I'm pretty sure this is out of my range but I want to see what you do with it. It's pretty! ❤ 3y
