Author….William
Wordsworth
Introduction
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
William Wordsworth was born on April 7,
1770. In Cockermouth Cumber land in the
lake district.
His mother died when he was 8.
He went to Cambridge University.
He died on April 23, 1850.
The poem
Milton! thou shouldst be living at this hour;
England hath need of thee: she is a fen
Of stagnant waters: altar, sword, and pen,
Fireside, the heroic wealth of hall and bower,
Have forfeited their ancient English dower
Of inward happiness. We are selfish men;
Oh! raise us up, return to us again;
And give us manners, virtue, freedom, power.
Thy soul was like a Star, and dwelt apart;
Thou hadst a voice whose sound was like the sea:
Pure as the naked heavens, majestic, free,
So didst thou travel on life's common way,
In cheerful godliness; and yet thy heart
The lowliest duties on herself did lay.

London 1802 paraphrased
Milton! I wish that you could return to Earth Every venerable
institution: religion, military, literature, and the home have lost
touch of inward happiness, Which is an English birthright.
We are being selfish please raise us up and return to us, and
teach us manners, virtues, freedom, and power.
His soul was as bright as a star, and stood apart from the crowd:
he did not need the approval or company of others in order to
live his life as he pleased. His voice was powerful and influence
as the sea itself, and though he possessed a kind moral
perfection, he never ceased to act humbly.

There were a lot of Obsolete words because

the military, pen is literature, and fireside is
home.

Conclusion/ Evaluation
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
We think that the author did a good job on the poem, we think
that it was cool how we got to over hear someone talking about
this great man John Milton and all of his accomplishments,
sounded like the person was mourning him wishing that he was
still alive and making wonderful poetry/literature because
England’s current Poets/writers aren’t doing much more
England.
When the speaker talks about altar, sword, and pen,
Fireside. We can imagine, religion, military, and literature, and
the household.
The Poem’s rhyme scheme went well with the poem and didn’t
confuse or distract us.
Personal Reactions
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
At first we didn’t really understand what the speaker
was talking about, after reading some summaries we
began to understand it and it wasn’t that bad(good
thing it was short).
It taught us that one person who doesn’t have to
have high power or lead groups can change a nation
just by his writings.
I think this poem may in a way relate to us, because
we are great writers and maybe just maybe our
writings can change this country!
