Let's Talk Romanticism

That's right people. Let's talk some Romanticism: put on some Teddy Pendergrass, dim the lights down low, and forget the Industrial Revolution. Pull out some Goethe, Browning or Longfellow, although, nothing gets the mood against industrialization going like some snippets of Wordsworth. Here's "The World is Too Much With Us," read by Samuel Godfrey George.

  1. Why do poetry readings of romantic poets always sound so droll? LOL

    It's interesting that Wordsworth would rather be a Pagen and worship nature than submit to the way the world was in his time. That makes it seem ironic that he was all for the French Revolution in his early years.
