Want to revise some key themes in Extract from 'The Prelude'?
You've come to the right place!
To quickly recap: Written by William Wordsworth, the speaker (who is Wordsworth, himself) describes his relationship with nature, depicting how it has changed over the years. A past sublime experience is described (this refers to an awe-inspiringly grand experience- something large and amazing), which then causes the speaker's opinion on nature to change. In the case of this poem, Wordsworth's sublime experience evokes simultaneously a fear and awe of nature. The poem depicts a life-changing moment for Wordsworth, where he experiences his transformation from boy to man, after witnessing the power of nature.
