Pratyusha Poet and writer

Join Poet in the City for an evening of poetry, discussion and reflection on life’s big questions through the words of Romantic poet William Wordsworth.

William Wordsworth was a poet with deep concern for the human condition and its relationship to the natural world. Raised in the beautiful vastness of the Lake District, nature provided a canvas to Wordsworth’s unending, humane curiosity. From his early poetry rooted in values of democracy and equality to his later work influenced by patriotism, nature became a sounding board for Wordsworth’s growing fascination with society.

Remembered as a both poet with heightened emotional sensitivity, political awareness and artistic self-knowledge, and one who held sharply opposing political views throughout his lifetime, Wordsworth danced on the edge of life’s big questions.
