William Wordsworth: The Immortality Ode & Three other Poems

William Wordsworth: Immortality Ode, and 3 Other Poems Human Voices Wake Us

An episode from 11/4/2021: A reading of four poems by William Wordsworth:

  • Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood
  • London (1802): “Milton! thou should’st be living at this hour!”
  • St. Paul’s
  • “It was an April morning: fresh and clear” (part 1 on “Poems on the Naming of Places”)

I read these here tonight to celebrate the release of a Selected Poems of William Wordsworth that I put together, and was just published. Other small books of poems (Whitman, Tennyson, and Frost) in the same series can be found here. If you’d like to support this podcast, buying a handful of these books would be the easiest way to do it–they are all around 120 pages, and all priced at $3.99.
