Contents 1. Introduction : Wordsworth's originality -- 2. Wordsworth in the Rime -- 3. Jeffreyism, Byron's Wordsworth, and the nonhuman in nature -- 4. Green to the very door? The natural Wordsworth -- 5. The novelty of Wordworth's earliest poems -- 6. Hoof after hoof, metric time -- 7. The poem to Coleridge -- 8. The pastor's wife and the wanderer : spousal verse or the mind's excursive power -- 9. Intimations revisited : from the crisis lyrics to Wordsworth in 1817 -- Afterword : Just having it there before us
Summary Where others have oriented Wordsworth towards ideas of transcendence, nature worship, or - more recently - political repression, Paul H. Fry argues that underlying all this is a more fundamental insight - Wordsworth is most astonished not that the world he experiences has any particular qualities, but rather that it simply exists
