My Selection — “The World is Too Much With Us”

A poem by William Wordsworth

Tritonen- und Najadenbrunnen von Edmund Hofmann von Aspernburg auf dem Maria-Theresien-Platz in Wien, Österreich. Link.

I do not teach British literature, but to understand the American Romantic period, we need to understand the influence of European writers like Wordsworth, Goethe, Shelley, and Keats on Thoreau, Emerson, Whitman, Hawthorne, and Emily Dickinson.

“All good books are the same and when you read a good book you realize it’s already passed on to you and then that book becomes yours whatever good or bad or enjoyable in it. There are evils, sadness, people, towns and seasons there, they all become yours.” (Ernest Hemingway)
