Our aim in this research is to read William Wordsworth's autobiography in verse, The Prelude, so as to identify its "thought scenes". We believe these scenes contain an understanding of the present moment, as well as a development upon it. Thought and presentness are created in the poem by an array of different voices, coming from different poems; nature, as well, is one of these voices, being both an origin and a construct. One of our focuses will be on the comparison between this poem and John Milton's Paradise Lost. (AU)
