Example text

Yet his visionary night-fears had been traumatic; he realized that the fate of France depended on what faction got control of the capital, and dread of politically excited mob rage and violence troubled his imagination for life. Just before Christmas 1792, and a few days after the birth of his daughter Caroline, Wordsworth joined his brother Richard at Staple Inn, where he was to stay for more than half a year. He was soon to discover that his guardians would not consent to his proposed marriage, and that uncle William's support for ordination would no longer be available if he remained loyal to Annette.

He and Wordsworth talked Of civil government, and its wisest forms; Of ancient loyalty, and chartered rights, Custom and habit, novelty and change; Of self· respect, and virtue in the few For patrimonial honour set apart, And ignorance in the labouring multitude. To discuss the principles ofliberty, and its historical successes and failures, with a man of such idealism and faith, at a time when events gave abstract rights a living reality, made Wordsworth feel in after years that Beaupuy stood 'near the worthiest of antiquity'; 'such conversation, under Attic shades, did Dion hold with Plato'.

He was invited to parties, and it was after dancing almost until cockcrow that he returned over the hills between Windermere and Colthouse, and saw day break over sea and mountains: Magnificent The morning rose, in memorable pomp, Glorious as e'er I had beheld - in front, The sea lay laughing at a distance; near, 24 A Wordsworth Companion The solid mountains shone, bright as the clouds, Grain-tinctured, drenched in empyrean light; And in the meadows and the lower grounds Was all the sweetness of a common dawn Dews, vapours, and the melody of birds, And labourers going forth to till the fields.
