The Prelude: Growth of a Poet's Mind by William Wordsworth

A sublime poem by the great Romantic, The Prelude is an autobiographical work, which evolves from Wordsworth's metaphor that life is a journey whose end is 'to arrive where we started'. The epic blank verse has universal themes, including love, joy, fear, 'spots of time' and how childhood shapes the way we perceive the world. The poet moves from his depression at the failure of the French Revolution towards the recovery of the imagination and a faith that there is something better for man. Those who enjoyed the tutor's course on Paradise Lost will relish the equally beautiful, but more familiar language of The Prelude, as will all.
