Along with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, late 18th century and early 19th century English lyricist William Wordsworth was one of the most prominent poets of the Romantic era. His first work "Lyrical Ballads, with a Few Other Poems" was penned with Coleridge, though most of the volume is by Wordsworth, and its publication in 1798, is generally considered to mark the beginning of the English Romantic movement in literature. Second editions of "Lyrical Ballads" were released in 1800 and 1802. The entirety of the "Lyrical Ballads" are collected together here in this volume along with his 1807 publication "Poems, in Two Volumes" and numerous other miscellaneous poems. Wordsworth lines evoke the beauty of both nature and the commonplace everyday world. A description of Wordsworth's work may best be found in his own famous definition of poetry: "the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility". This edition collects together nearly the entirety of Wordsworth's non-narrative lyrical work in a truly representative volume with an introduction by John Morley.
