Chapter 3 Lines Written in Early Spring (Poem)

Author

William Wordsworth, a significant English Romantic poet (7 April 1770 – 23 April 1850), collaborated with Samuel Taylor Coleridge to help spark the Romantic Age, a very important literary, artistic, and philosophical movement, in England and throughout Europe.

Summary

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF THE POEM

Wordsworth wrote Lines Written in Early Spring on a walk near the village of Alford.
Wordsworth was an ardent walker, and often composed his poems on the move, or wrote them about the scenes of nature that he witnessed. He supported the French Revolution, and had concerns about the way that civilization was going, and the things that humans were doing to each other

 

STANZA-1
I heard a thousand blended notes,
While in a grove I sate reclined,
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
Bring sad thoughts to the mind.

 

WORDS & MEANINGS
1. blend-mixture,combination
2. note-musical sound,a tone
3. sate-to sit
4. recline-to put in a resting position
5. mood-a mental or emotional state

 

EXPLANATION OF THE FIRST STANZA
In the first quatrain, the divinity of Nature occurs in the phrase 'a thousand blended notes, implying an almost-pervasive presence of the natural, something that is related to the omnipotence shown by God.

 

STANZA-2
To her fair works did Nature link
The human soul that through me ran;
And much it grieved my heart to think
What man has made of man

 

WORDS & MEANINGS
1. fair-beautiful, lovely, pretty
2. link-connection, to connect
3. soul-the spirit of essence of something
4. grieve-to cause sorrow, to feel very sad

 

EXPLANATION OF THE SECOND STANZA
The second stanza moves briefly away from Nature to recall on the misery that other humans have caused each other since time immemorial. The poet, however, takes a moment to state that Nature is linked to humanity through the idea of a soul; that Nature's soul is not that different from humanity, and that, although it has been forgotten by the rest of the world, it is man's natural state to be close to Nature. This was one of Wordsworth's principle philosophies: that it was man's innate state to be close to nature.

 

STANZA-3
Through primrose tufts, in that green bower,
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And 'tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.

 

WORDS & MEANINGS
1. Primrose- rose flower in yellow colour
2. tuft-group, bunch of
3. bower-a shady leaf shelter or recess in a garden or woods
4. periwinkle-a wild plant with blue colour flower
5. trail-to follow behind
6. wreath-an ornamental circular band made

 

EXPLANATION OF THE THIRD STANZA
In this stanza, the presence of nature as a living thing strikes again, this time in the movement verbs used 'trailed', for the periwinkle; 'breathes' for the flowers. Throughout Lines Written in Early Spring, Wordsworth does his best to create the idea of a living, breathing world that is only a fraction removed from humanity.

 

STANZA-4
The birds around me hopped and played,
Their thoughts I cannot measure:-
But the least motion which they made
It seemed a thrill of pleasure.

 

WORDS & MEANINGS
1. hop-a short jump
2. least motion-small movement
3. thrill-to give someone great pleasure
4. seem-to appear

 

EXPLANATION OF THE FOURTH STANZA
Once more, the presence of movement draws stark contrast with the immobile poet – it is
nature that draws the reader's attention, so much has been said about it that it renders the speaker- poet nearly a non-entity. He has no presence in the poem; no thoughts, no personality, no ideas. His world is subsumed by the stronger one of nature.

 

STANZA-5
The budding twigs spread out their fan,
To catch the breezy air;
And I must think, do all I can,
That there was pleasure there

 

WORDS & MEANINGS
1. budding-beginning to develop
2. twig-a small thin branch of a tree or bush
3. fan-to blow air on
4. breeze-a light gentle wind
EXPLANATION OF THE FIFTH STANZA
The breeze flowing is sweet and light, the twigs are spreading out as if to catch the sweet air and all the speaker can do is gather pleasure in their existence.

 

STANZA-6
If this belief from heaven be sent,
If such be Nature's holy plan,
Have I not reason to lament
What man has made of man?

 

WORDS & MEANINGS
1. holy-sacred
2. lament-to express grief

 

EXPLANATION OF THE SIXTH STANZA
Nature has only holy plans for humanity. Instead of understanding that man’s greed, materialism and selfishness kill himself and nature. In fact he has moved far away from nature .He becomes unholy and unleashes cruelty.
