William Wordsworth
b. 4-7-1770; Wordsworth House, Cockermouth, England
d. 4-23-1850; Cumberland (pleurisy)

Poet William Wordsworth was England's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850. He, along with Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey, were known as the Lake Poets, and began the Romantic literature movement in England.

I Wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze....

Wordsworth quotes
• “Poetry is the breath and finer spirit of all knowledge.”
• “All good poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.”

William Wordsworth - The Major Works : including The Prelude

FYI - did you know Wordsworth wrote a travel book about the Lake District as a “sort of national property in which every man has a right and interest who has an eye to perceive and a heart to enjoy.”?

Richard Wright

Richard Wright
b. 9-4-1908; near Natchez, MS
d. 11-28-1960

"I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all, to keep alive in our hearts a sense of the inexpressibly human.” American Hunger

Richard Wright's Native Son is a protest novel and one of the earliest and most successful attempts to explain the racial divide and social conditions imposed on African-Americans by white society in the United States.
