Listener Opinions

    " This one is embarrassing for me. I read this in college and smugly thought Wordsworth to be a lightweight. What a joke. He's up there with the best. The calm and honest tone of many of the poems wasn't suited to my overwrought (and dishonest) 20 year old soul. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Victoria Flamenco | 2/6/2014

    " I know it's a crime for an English major, but I can't stand the Romantic poets. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rand Hooks | 2/1/2014

    " Always fun to see how century old perspectives still apply to today. "

    " I've always shied away from reading poetry anthologies. Since this was a required text for my master's exam, I had no choice. I saved it for last, because I honestly wasn't sure if I would have the mental durability to get through it. Much to my surprise, I found most of the poems to be easily accessible, albeit, I took many notes to help me keep track of the narrative structure. All the poems have a rustic, backwoods, working class quality to them. Moreover, they celebrate the joys and power of nature. I remember enjoying "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" when I was in high school, but I never would have cracked the rest of the text without prompting. I'm glad that I did, and the journey was rewarding. The poems were superbly non-ornament, yet poignantly written; great for reading on a snow day! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Klefstad | 1/20/2014

    " Of course these are wonderful. If only he'd died a little younger, like a good lyric poet . . . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 1/16/2014

    " What hasn't been said about Wordsworth? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 1/9/2014

    " Well as much of it as I need to. Still less painful than The Prelude. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carole | 1/8/2014

    " Perhaps I'll write more later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christian | 11/26/2013

    " Some high notes (Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Nightingale, a few others). A very nice read for when you can sit outside with nothing to do for a while. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kam | 9/18/2013

    " Some of these are really great; amazing. But I usually need the teacher, or a class, to really delve into poetry. I have a neutral/difficult time with poetry. But these are great, and they were on the cutting edge at the time, ushering in a new way to write. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmi | 9/11/2013

    " The insecure, oft-forgot poetical wanderings of Coleridge still trumping the turncoat Wordsworth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsty | 7/23/2013

    " I've finally read some Wordsworth! Some of these poems were absolutely lovely, but I still much prefer Keats and Tennyson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A.E. | 6/7/2013

    " I don't know...I can just totally relate to having bearded men with anochronistic accents and smokey-pale eyes coming up to me at weddings and going on and on about some bird they shot then wore around their neck. It's like I was 22 all over again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 10/22/2012

    " There were some very good pieces here and some I didn't enjoy quite as much. Certainly a few of these feel a bit dated, but there is also some truly grand material. Well worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 10/3/2012

    " The Rime of the Ancient Maryner is one of the best poems I've ever read. The rest of the book is pretty awesome, but still I prefer Coleridge to Wordsworth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Jackson | 8/2/2012

    " I had to read some of the poems for uni and I decided to read them all. The poems included in this collection were all beautifully done :) Some of my favourites include "We Are Seven" and "Lines left upon a Seat in a Yew-tree." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ke Huang | 11/8/2011

    " As a reader who also happens to be engaged with modernist writers, I would say that romantic poetry appears elementary. That said, the works are exquisite and I am glad to have gotten this perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 9/20/2011

    " William Wordsworth is my new hero. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cameron | 5/10/2011

    " I must say I prefer Wordsworth's contributions to Coleridge's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 3/10/2011

    " an all time classic every educated person should read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/15/2011

    " I kind of got into it after one of my classmates (who is also named John but who is sexier than me) told me what Wordsworth was trying to do with time and space and death. But it is still totally not my style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Subat | 11/4/2010

    " Wordsworth and Coleridge are a mixed bag for me, there is however, no denying the inteligence entwined within these poems and their are some amazing poems in the collection, 'We are Seven' being a praticular favourite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aphotic | 6/18/2010

    " Romantics just ain't really my dig. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Evan Snyder | 1/24/2010

    " Although I like nature, which Wordsworth goes on about ad infinitem, I found Wordsworth himself to be rather bossy, which diminished my enjoyment of his writings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alessandro Amadesi | 5/30/2009

    " absolutely a classic. The story of European and, of course, English literature. The real romantic movement "
