THE EXCURSION.

.

“The EXCURSION-the noblest poem in the English language, since Milton's Paradise Lost." R. H. DANA.

“ Wordsworth's Poetry stands distinct in the world. That which to other men is an occasional pleasure, or possibly delight, and to other poets an occasional transport, the seeing this visible Universe, is to him, a Life-one Individual Human Life-namely, his Own-travelling the whole journey from the cradle to the grave. And that Life-for what else could he do with it?--he has verified-sung. And there is no other such song.” CHRISTOPHER NORTH, IN BLACKWOOD.
