TXTWWPoems; E665|        PREFACE [PAGE viii] The powers requisite for the production of
TXTWWPoems; E665|        poetry are, first, those of observation and description. . . .
TXTWWPoems; E665|        whether the things depicted be actually present to the senses, or
TXTWWPoems; E665|        have a place only in the memory. . . . 2dly, Sensibility, . . .

AnnWWPoems; E665|        One Power alone makes a Poet.---Imagination The Divine Vision

TXTWWPoems; E665|        [PAGE 1] Poems Referring to the Period of Childhood
AnnWWPoems; E665|        I see in Wordsworth the Natural Man rising up against the
AnnWWPoems; E665|        Spiritual Man Continually & then he is No Poet but a Heathen
AnnWWPoems; E665|        Philosopher at Enmity against all true Poetry or Inspiration

TXTWWPoems; E665|        [PAGE 3] And I could wish my days to be
TXTWWPoems; E665|        Bound each to each by natural piety.
AnnWWPoems; E665|        There is no such Thing as Natural Piety Because The Natural
AnnWWPoems; E665|        Man is at Enmity with God

TXTWWPoems; E665|        [PAGE 43] To H. C. Six Years Old
AnnWWPoems; E665|        This is all in the highest degree Imaginative & equal to any
AnnWWPoems; E665|        Poet but not Superior I cannot think that Real Poets have any
AnnWWPoems; E665|        competition None are greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven it is so
AnnWWPoems; E665|        in Poetry

TXTWWPoems; E665|        Influence of Natural Objects
TXTWWPoems; E665|        In calling forth and strengthening the Imagination
TXTWWPoems; E665|        in Boyhood and early Youth.
AnnWWPoems; E665|        Natural Objects always did & now do Weaken deaden &
AnnWWPoems; E665|        obliterate Imagination in Me Wordsworth must know that what he
AnnWWPoems; E665|        Writes Valuable is Not to be found in Nature Read Michael Angelos

TXTWWPoems; E665|        [PAGE 341] Essay, Supplementary to the Preface.
AnnWWPoems; E665|        I do not know who wrote these Prefaces they are very
AnnWWPoems; E665|        mischievous & direct contrary to Wordsworths own Practise

TXTWWPoems; E665|        [PAGE 364] From what I saw with my own eyes, I knew that the
TXTWWPoems; E665|        imagery was spurious. In nature every thing is distinct, yet
TXTWWPoems; E665|        nothing defined into absolute independant singleness. In
TXTWWPoems; E665|        Macpherson's work, it is exactly the reverse; every thing (that
TXTWWPoems; E665|        is not stolen) is in this manner defined, insulated, dislocated,
TXTWWPoems; E665|        deadened,--yet nothing distinct. It will always be so when words
TXTWWPoems; E665|        are substituted for things. . . . Yet, much as these pretended
TXTWWPoems; E665|        treasures of antiquity have been admired. . . .
AnnWWPoems; E665|        I Believe both Macpherson & Chatterton, that what they
AnnWWPoems; E665|        say is Ancient, Is so

TXTWWPoems; E666|        [PAGE 365] . . . no Author in the least distinguished, has
TXTWWPoems; E666|        ventured formally to imitate them-- except the Boy, Chatterton,
TXTWWPoems; E666|        on their first appearance.
AnnWWPoems; E666|        I own myself an admirer of Ossian equally with any other
AnnWWPoems; E666|        Poet whatever Rowley & Chatterton also

TXTWWPoems; E666|        [PAGE 375, final paragraph] . . . if [the Writer] were not
TXTWWPoems; E666|        persuaded that the Contents of these Volumes . . . evinced
TXTWWPoems; E666|        something of the "Vision and the Faculty divine," . . . he would
TXTWWPoems; E666|        not, if a wish could do it, save them from immediate
TXTWWPoems; E666|        destruction.
AnnWWPoems; E666|        It appears to me as if the last Paragraph beginning With "Is
AnnWWPoems; E666|        it the result" Was writ by another hand & mind from the rest of
AnnWWPoems; E666|        these Prefaces. Perhaps they are the opinions of Sr G Beaumont a
AnnWWPoems; E666|        Landscape Painter   t1492 Imagination is the Divine Vision not of The
AnnWWPoems; E666|        World nor of Man nor from Man as he is a Natural Man but only as
AnnWWPoems; E666|        he is a Spiritual Man Imagination has nothing to do with Memory
