English Romantic poet William Wordsworth marked a significant turning point during the 19th Century in the history of English literature. He celebrated the splendour of nature and human spirit, a theme echoed through his poetry and in joint collaboration with Samuel Taylor Coleridge the publication of "Lyrical Ballads".
Wordsworth was born on April 7, 1770 in Cockermouth, Cumbria, close to the heart of the English Lake District. This Georgian market town is located in one of the most beautiful areas of England and had a significant effect on Wordsworth's imagination, giving him his great love of nature.
A few major works of Wordsworth are: An Evening Walk, Descriptive Sketches, Lyrical Ballads, Poems in Two Volumes, The Excursion, The Prelude.
Wordsworth was the recipient of Honorary Degrees from Durham University and Oxford University and was the Poet Laureate of England. To this day, the name 'Wordsworth' is synonymous with Romanticism in England and the world over.
