Wordsworth's The Prelude is the consummation of his achievement as the great founder of English romanticism. An autobiography in verse, it tells of his childhood in the Lake District, his student days in Cambridge, his passion for the French Revolution and his later disenchantment with it. It also tells of his personal journey to a belief in Nature as the great moral and spiritual force which shapes human life, but on which human society all too often turns its back. Sub-titled Growth of a Poet's Mind', The Prelude is both a key document in the history of English literature and an inspiring work of imagination. It is as fresh and challenging today as when it was written two centuries ago.

Review:

I am a little ashamed to admit that I began by using William Wordsworth's The Prelude as my bedtime story, confident that I would be lulled off pretty fast. But it proved altogether too fascinating. Promoted to my striding-the-hills-and-dales book, it is hugely enjoyable, telling not just of Wordsworth's love of the lakes but of his life in London and in France during the Revolution, and full of course of famous lines ('Bliss it was in that dawn to be alive / But to be young was very heaven; Rise up, thou monstrous ant-hill on the plain / Of a too busy world!'). --Christina Hardyment, The Times
