Wordsworth: Poetry and Place
This interactive learning aid allows you to connect poems by the British Romantic poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850) to the places that inspired them in England’s Lake District, where Wordsworth grew up and spent most of his life. Viewer-manipulated videos and photographs enable you to “enter” the settings of poetic passages as you read them. Wordsworth actually composed some of these lines in or near the locations you can view.
