Wordsworth, William (1770-1850) Born in
England's Lake District, this British poet was educated at Cambridge. During
the French Revolution he was introduced to the ideas of Rousseau, which
affected him deeply. In 1798 he published Lyrical Ballads with Coleridge, the
book that is considered to have begun the Romantic Movement in Britain. He was
named poet laureate in 1843. Some of the exquisite lyricism in Wordsworth's
poetry can be found in "Daffodils" and the well-known Lucy poems.
