Composed upon Westminster Bridge

My Heart Leaps Up. My heart leaps up when I behold A rainbow in the sky: So was it when my life began; So is it now I am a man; So be it when I shall grow old, Or let me die! The Child is father of the Man; And I could wish my days to be Bound each to each by natural piety. Composed upon Westminster Bridge. Earth has not anything to show more fair: Dull would he be of soul who could pass by A sight so touching in its majesty: This City now doth, like a garment, wear The beauty of the morning; silent, bare, Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie Open unto the fields, and to the sky; All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.

The Twayne is one of the best series of literary analyses that I have read, and the Wordsworth one is no exception.

Great bio of Willy Wordsworth.

Noyes's book is a comprehensive take on William Wordsworth, examining the entire scope of his poetry. The book functions as a short biography of Wordsworth's career, spiced throughout with poems and interpretations. Noyes makes certain to include every poem that has "endured the sifting of time" (xi), in chronological order, and he provides a context for each in order to show Wordsworth's development as a poet over time.

At around 150 pages, Noyes's book makes for a nice introduction to Wordsworth's life and works, as well as providing a general context for anyone interested in a particular period of his career. As one might expect, Noyes's book definitely comes from a slant in presenting Wordsworth persistently in a positive light. Nowhere is this bias more apparent than Noyes's conclusion that Wordsworth "was the most truly original genius of his age," whose style is "unsurpassed in its naked idiomatic force and its quiet unadorned beauty of word and phrase" (139, 142). For Noyes, no decision made by Wordsworth lacks merit and every one of his actions and poetic decisions must be explained with a principle of charity that makes even a fan of Wordsworth a bit leery. As the editor notes, Noyes's biography operates at a fairly high level of generalization, making it more suitable to background reading than to deep textual analysis. That being said, however, Noyes's work provides a helpful, global perspective on what might be considered the "standard" views concerning most aspects of Wordsworth's works-perhaps providing the springboard for research or, if one's feelings towards Wordsworth's work are less favorable than Noyes's own, even argument.
