William Wordsworth (Cockermouth, April 7, 1770 – Rydal Mount, April 23, 1850) was an English poet.
Together with Coleridge he is considered the founder of Romanticism and especially of English Naturalism, thanks to the publication in 1798 of the Lyrical Ballads, the first true manifesto of the movement in England.
Although Wordsworth's posthumous poem The Prelude is considered his masterpiece, it is in fact the lyrical ballads that have decisively influenced the nineteenth-century literary landscape.
The decidedly innovative character of his poetry, set in the evocative setting of the Lake District in the north of Cumberland, lies in the choice of the protagonists, characters of humble origins drawn from everyday life, with a simple language that closely follows their speech.
