Wordsworth’s The Prelude, Books Nine and Ten: Revolutionary Ideals ^Foreman stand by giving directions from blueprints, but the blueprints do not correspond. A few eccentrics wills labor only at little corners of their own. A great many struggle to keep standing what others would tear down. Wordsworth's Prelude, Book 7. Residence in London SIX changeful years have vanished since I first Poured out (saluted by that quickening breeze Which met me issuing from the City's walls) A glad preamble to this Verse: I sang Aloud, with fervour irresistible Of short-lived transport, like a torrent bursting, From a black thunder-cloud, down Scafell's side To rush and disappear.

Book 5 next gives us a glimpse of the child learning from juvenile literature and his deep, though perhaps unuttered, thankfulness. Wordsworth then passes to praise and to a benediction for all creators of verse and story and calls them “Powers for ever to be hallowed” and depicts them as great benefactors of humanity.   The Seventh Book of Wordsworth’s Prelude, “Residence in London,” treats an entirely different subject than the rest of the epic. In fact, it can almost be seen as the antithesis chapter, providing Wordsworth’s recollections on a city as a contrast to his feelings about Nature. The Seventh Book begins with Wordsworth forever finishing his time.

“The Prelude is the greatest long poem in our language after Paradise Lost,” says one critic. Its comparison with the great seventeenth-century epic is in some respects a happy one since Milton was (after Coleridge) Wordsworth’s greatest idol. The Prelude may be classed somewhat loosely as an epic; it does [ ]. Some 45 years before The Prelude finally saw publication, Wordsworth read a version it is entirety to his good friend and fellow legendary Romantic poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge. That version encompassed 13 books and was highlighted by passages revealing the depths of his despair in the wake of the failure of the French Revolution.
