This Day In History: William Wordsworth

April is National Poetry Month, so it's the perfect time to celebrate the birth anniversary of 19th-century British poet William Wordsworth. Famous for his poems "Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tinturn Abbey," "I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud," and "Ode: Intimations of Immortality," Wordsworth is often studied in British Literature classes.
