|English poet. Orphaned at 13|
Wordsworth was a defining member of the English Romantic Movement.
Like other Romantics, Wordsworth¡¯s personality and poetry were deeply influenced by his love of nature, especially by the sights and scenes of the Lake Country, in which he spent most of his mature life.
A profoundly earnest and sincere thinker, he displayed a high seriousness tempered with tenderness and a love of simplicity.
