 Books of the poet: William Wordsworth - book works writings work
Wordsworth's poem "Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood" is one of the master works of the English linguage.
Wordsworth did not want the poem published for fears that it was too self-absorbed; adressing earlier reviews that have made this complaint, it is true that the poem is self absorbed in that it presents the vision of the world from an individual perspective...as all poems do.
As for comparing Wordsworth to a modernist, that comparison is difficult to make as the modernists rejected the romantic's formal language and optimism (both present in the prelude, despite moments of recognition of a bleak 'wasted' world).
