The Prelude, The Recluse & The Excursion

By William Wordsworth
The Prelude, The Recluse & The Excursion by William Wordsworth digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

“The Prelude”, a poem written in blank verse, is Wordsworth's autobiographical magnum opus within which he offers the reader a plethora of personal details about his life. He began writing when he was just 28 and continued to work on it throughout his life. Changed and expanded many times, it was originally conceived as an introduction to “The Recluse”, an unfinished work. “The Excursion” is the second and only completed part of Wordsworth's “The Recluse”. It revolves around three central figures: the Solitary, who has lived through the horrors and hopes of the French Revolution; the Pastor, to whom a third of the poem is dedicated; and the Wanderer. “The Recluse” was to be Wordsworth 's three-part masterpiece, but tragically remains uncompleted.
