The second edition of Lyrical Ballads appeared in two volumes in in Wordsworth's name alone. In the anonymous edition, there had been a mere "advertisement" to orient the reader to the poems; inthe famous "Preface" took its place. Wordsworth notes that friends had urged him to write a defense of the collection, but he preferred.

"A selection of language really used by men": The Neo-Classical poets and critics were of the opinion that good poetry must be written only in a highly artificial and stylised language called. The language, too, of these men has been adopted -purified indeed from what appear to be its real defects, from all lasting and rational causes of dislike and disgust- because such men communicate with the best objects from which the best part of language is originally derived; and because, from their rank in society and the sameness and narrow.

William Wordsworth William Wordsworth was born on April 7, to John Wordsworth and Ann Cookson in Cockermouth, Cumberland, northwest of England (Gill, ). William was the second of five children. His sister, Dorothy, was a poet and diarist, and was very close with William.

She became one of William’s greatest influences in his own writing. The Prelude, an autobiographic epic poem in 14 sections, is said to be one of the greatest works of English literature.

The first version was written in but Wordsworth continued to refine it. Wordsworth and Coleridge publish Lyrical Ballads, a collection of poems written in "language really used by men," free of the "gaudiness and inane phraseology of many modern writers." 34 The book sparks the Romantic Age of English literature.

In a preface to the second edition, Wordsworth warns the audience that they will either love or hate. A new volume of poetry from Robert Hass is always an event.

Such an endeavor is not as straightforward as it may initially sound, as it is not Wordsworths intent to dumb down his language to a base level in opposition to the overly flowery prose of his peers.

InWilliam Wordsworth offers a bold and, at the time, deeply controversial claim about poetry. In the Preface to Lyrical Ballads (a collection he co-authored with his friend Samuel Taylor Coleridge), Wordsworth argues that all poets should dispense with the ornate conventions of eighteenth-century verse and focus upon what he calls the language and .states, “Poverty of language is the primary cause of the use which we make of the word, Imagination” ().

Poststructuralist critics agree and focus on the nature of language as they study literature. One of the main concerns for this school of criticism is deconstructing language in order to understand an author’s meaning.
