Poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850) was the leader of the Romantic movement in British literature. He was strongly influenced by the ideology of the French Revolution and by the landscape of Britain's Lake Country, where he lived for most of his life. Among his most famous poems are "TinternAbbey" (published in Lyrical Ballads, which he wrote with his friend and colleague Samuel Taylor Coleridge), "Ode: Intimations of Immortality," "The Solitary Reaper," "Daffodils," and numerous sonnets. Wordsworth's poetry is a staple of the U.S. high school English curriculum, and his home, DoveCottage, is a much-visited tourist site in Britain's Lake District.
