The Poetical Works, Vol. 4 free pdf Excerpt from The Poetical Works, Vol. 4 From evidence gathered since the Chronological Table in the first volume of this edition was issued, I have been led to assign many of the Sonnets first published in 1807 to the year 1806. Wordsworth left Grasmere with his household for Coleorton in November 1806, and we have no proof that he returned to Westmoreland till April 1808- although his sister spent part of the winter of 1807-8 at Dove Cottage, while he and Mrs Wordsworth wintered at Stockton with the Hutchinsons. Several of the sonnets which are published in the volumes of 1807 refer, however, to Grasmere, and were evidently composed there- and I have conjecturally assigned a good many of them - about twenty in all - to the year 1806, including even the one "composed by the side of Grasmere Lake," beginning - Clouds, lingering yet, extend in solid bars, to which he himself gave the date 1807. (See the note, p. 31.) Some of these sonnets may have been composed earlier than 1806, but it is not likely that any of them belong to a later year. In addition to these sonnets, the poems of 1806 include the Character of the Happy Warrior - (unless that should be assigned to the close of the previous year - see the note to the poem), The Horn of Egremont Castle, the three poems composed in London in the spring of the year (April or May) - viz., Stray Pleasures, Star-gazers, and The Power of Music - the lines on the Mountain Echo, those composed in expectation of the death of Mr Fox, and the Ode on Immortality. Sir Walter Scott, in writing to Southey on the 4th of February 1806, said, "Wordsworth has of late been more employed in correcting his poems than in writing others." Since this edition was begun, so many new facts and dates have been discovered - from sources as yet only partially accessible - that a second and revised Chronological Table of the Poems will be given in the last volume, along with the Life of the Poet. - Ed.
