Lucy– William Wordsworth

Lucy– William Wordsworth
Þ          William Wordsworth was poet of nature and one of pioneers of the Romantic Movement in England. He had brought in a new trend in poetry-stressing the need for a return to nature and simple mode of poetic communication.  He had an exceptional influence on the development of English literature.
Þ          These two poems have been taken form a group of five poems where Wordsworth has written about his love for Lucy. We do not know who Lucy was. But it is likely that the poems speak of a real experience of young love for a girl who died suddenly. The poet’s love is very tender and since and the loss is felt very deeply.
