Wordsworth is great as a teacher, and great as a poet; he is great for he opens the eyes of his readers to the loveliness of Nature and their souls to her divine message.
“Wordsworth’s poetry is great”, writes Arnold, his genius is at its fullest when he has the high things to say and in such really inspired moments, Nature herself seems to take the pen out of his hi and to write for him, with her own bare, sheer, penetrating power.”
He is one of the chief glories of English poetry. He had hoped that his poetry would cooperate with the begin tendencies human nature and society, and will be efficacious in making men wiser, better and happier. Time has shown that his hopes were justified.
