April 2020 sees the 250th anniversary of the birth of William Wordsworth, one of Britain’s greatest writers. Strongly associated with the Lake District, Wordsworth is best known as a poet of Nature. His work also addresses many other important themes, including childhood, personal growth, and the importance of compassion in our daily lives. This talk will introduce the poet and his works and show how his poetry still speaks to us now.
Simon Bainbridge is Professor in the Department of English Literature and Creative Writing at Lancaster University. He has written three books, Napoleon and English Romanticism, British Poetry and the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars and numerous articles on William Wordsworth and other Romantic poets. He is a Trustee of the Wordsworth Trust.
