Composed upon Westminster Bridge, September 3,

BY!WILLIAM WORDSWORTH
Earth has not anything to show more fair:!
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by!
A sight so touching in its majesty:!
This City now doth, like a garment, wear!
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,!
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie!
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;!
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.!
Never did sun more beautifully steep!
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;!
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:!
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;!
And all that mighty heart is lying still!!
-DC city of wedding cakes!
-symmetrical!
-balance!
-alexander pope- genius at iambic pentameter couplets!
-pg 1246 ln 17- first #d section!
-we cant see the direction or harmony or action the world!
-in all evil lies good!
-voltaire - we live in the best of all possible worlds !
-where is the room for individuality, etc- none stay in place of hierarchy!
-sonnet does not obey rules of balance and of symmetry!
-people becoming tired of hierarchy and controls!
-so they turned back to the middle ages!
-found gothicism !
-copernican revolution!
