The world is too much with us

Today I am going to give a brief biography of William Wordsworth and then a summary of the poem will be presented.

Biography

William Wordsworth was born in April 7, 1770 in Cockermouth, Cumberland, England. At the age of 13 he was an orphan , yet he did well in his school and later joined Cambridge University and graduated from there. On a trip to France he fell in love with Annette Vallon, who became pregnant. But later a declaration of war between England and France separated the two. In 1795 he met Samuel Taylor Coleridge; both of them became friends and later worked on “Lyrical Ballads” together. In 1802 there was a temporary lull in the war which meant he could see Annette and their daughter, Caroline. But he again had to return back due to limited funds. Later that year he got married. In 1843 Wordsworth was appointed as the Poet Laureate (official poet of a country) . He died on April 23, 1850.

Summary

In this poem , the Poet shows his anger towards us greedy , unsatisfied humans. When he says ” is too much with us” , he means that we have received so much from the nature that we are not able to handle it properly. Bestowed upon us was a huge ore of resources by mother nature and that is the reason we don’t know how to appreciate it. At the end he says he wants to be raised as a pagan so that he is able to love and worship the nature and Gods related to it.

Snippet

A snippet from my new story in Wattpad,

Entering the room Vikram was reminded of the day when for the first time his father had brought him here.”Viki my boy don’t think of this company as just an asset, think of it as your God, worship it and most importantly give it your time”.2

The young boy could see tears forming in his father’s eyes; he had never seen the old man crying. He hugged the person and proudly
said” Yes, dad I’ll always remember your advice and not for once will I think this place as my income source, I’ll cherish it just like you.”He couldn’t understand why suddenly these memories came to his mind which couldn’t lurk in since his father’s death.

What were you doing ?

“So will you be doing that “? she asked him

“Do what “? he asked her while turning a page of their old wedding album .

“Did you even listen to anything I said”? she enquired with a scowl

“Umm…Actually no”, he replied like a kid caught with a candy.

“Then what were you doing while I was ranting the list “, she asked him almost fuming now.

He knew how to calm her, “I was just trying to understand, how a woman could look so beautiful and yet retain for the past 40 years”.

A smile slowly crept up her lips and she gave a small peck on his cheek.
