Dante in English Literature from Chaucer to Cary (C, 1380-1844), Vol. 2 of 2 free pdf Excerpt from Dante in English Literature From Chaucer to Cary (C, 1380-1844), Vol. 2 of 2: With Introduction, Notes, Biographical Notices, Chronological List, and General Index [William Wordsworth was the son of an attorney of Cockermouth, Cumberland, where he was born in 1770. He was educated at Hawkshead Grammar School and St. John's College, Cambridge, where he entered in 1787 and graduated in 1791. While at Cambridge he studied Italian under Agostino Isola, the teacher appointed by Gray (see vol. i. pp. 358-9). In 1790 he made a tour through France and Switzerland into Italy, which he revisited in 1820 and in 1837. In 1791 he again visited France and remained there for more than a year. Shortly after his return he published his first poems, the Evening Walk and Descriptive Sketches (1793). In or about 1795 he made the acquaintance of Coleridge, and in 1798 they published jointly Lyrical Ballads, to which Coleridge contributed the Ancient Mariner. In 1799 Wordsworth settled with his sister Dorothy at Grasmere, where he resided for the rest of his life. In 1807 he published two volumes containing some of his finest poems, including the Ode to Duty and Ode on the Intimations of Immortality. About 1813 Lord Lonsdale obtained for him the office of distributor of stamps for the county of Westmoreland, which he held until 1842, when Sir Robert Peel at the instance of Gladstone gave him a pension of 300 a year from the civil list. On Southey's death in 1843 Wordsworth was appointed Poet Laureate. He died at Grasmere in 1850. Of his longer poems, the Excursion was published in 1814, the White Doe of Rylstone in 1815, Peter Bell in 1819, and the Prelude (posthumously) in 1850. Wordsworth possessed a copy of the Divina Commedia, which he read, but he seems to have preferred Ariosto and Tasso to Dante, whom he admired apparently more as a patriot than as a poet. He expressed his appreciation, however, for Cary's translation, which in conversation with Alexander Dyce he described as 'a great national work.'-] 1805. Oct. 17. Letter To Sir George Beaumont (from Grasmere). [The poetry of Dante and Michael Angelo] There is a mistake in the world concerning the Italian language- the poetry of Dante and Michael Angelo proves that if there be little majesty and strength in Italian verse, the fault is in the authors, and not in the tongue.( Life of W. Wordswirth, by W. Knight, vol. ii. p. 67. ) About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
