Essay submitted by Franny Glass Wordsworth did not write by using lofty eloquent language and great issues and personalities as subjects Unlike his contemporaries he recognized that good poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings and therefore nothing along the lines of strait-laced stoic little old women or grandiose dining rooms He wrote of bucolic life not much was said but never were the important things left out Lifes most elementary feelings were revealed in the most permanent ways ever-present in the Wordsworths aesthetic appreciation was not destroyed by his poetic vanity he finds no need to embellish his phrases for sophistication Common language served Wordsworths purpose well for the simple words were direct in their purpose They expressed feelings that had been known and repeated many times before and therefore contained a certain durability Being concise was not a shortcut it was the inevitable result of perceiving things the way they truly were and depicting them honestly Nature did not need to be invented or built up in his poems because it was in itself more wonderful than anything could ever be imagined All that needed to be done was for him to be able to grasp it As time passed he discovered that he was able to do so especially during great moments of relaxation following unusually powerful emotions It was then that mind and heart could blend to produce pieces which brought vivacity to the senses As Wordsworth worked to revive the powers he felt as a child he plunged into his past As a result he was able to free himself of the times poetic conventions and use pure language to compose testaments of the wonders of the world around us
