"Selected Poetry of William Wordsworth" represents Wordsworth's prolific output, from the poems first published in "Lyrical Ballads" in 1798 that changed the face of English poetry to the late "Yarrow Revisited." Wordsworth's poetry is celebrated for its deep feeling, its use of ordinary speech, the love of nature it expresses, and its representation of commonplace things and events. As Matthew Arnold notes, " Wordsworth's poetry] is great because of the extraordinary power with which he] feels the joy offered to us in nature, the joy offered to us in the simple elementary affections and duties."
