Wordsworth

Two Part Prelude

  • Trace it back to origin
    • Growth of poets mind
  • How did you become who you are?
  • River is important
  • Ln 270
    • The mother’s influence is most important
    • The first bit of unity-all babies nurse from their mothers
    • Mother isn’t just supportive—she’s everything
  • Divine as a female
  • No reference to established religion
    • Instead uses nature and life experiences
  • Grouped together and excluded:
    • Non campos mentis (unsound mind)
    • Women
    • Children
