Worcester, EARL OF. See TIPTOFT.

Worcester, woos'ter, (EDWARD SOMERSET,) MAR-
QUIS OF, an English peer, distinguished as one of the
inventors of the steam-engine, was born in 1601. He
was styled LORD HERBERT during the life of his father.
He was an active partisan of Charles I. in the civil
war, raised troops at his own expense, and spent in the
cause a great sum of money, which was never repaid. He
nad an inventive genius and superior mechanical talents.
He resided at Raglan Castle, in Monmouthshire. After
the restoration of 1660 he impoverished himself by the
expenditure of large sums in scientific experiments. In
1663 Parliament passed an act to enable the marquis to
receive the benefit and profit of "a water-commanding
engine" invented by him. Soon after this event he
published a curious work, entitled a "Century of the
Names and Scantlings of Inventions," and constructed
at Vauxhall a machine which he called a water-engine.
This appears to have been the first steam-engine ever
made. He was regarded as a visionary projector by his
contemporaries. Died in 1667.

He was arrested as he was returning by land, and kept
in prison seven months. He commanded the floating
battery Monitor, which was armed with two 11-inch
smooth-bore Dahlgren guns, carrying a shot of one
hundred and sixty-eight pounds, and which left New
York March 6, 1862. He arrived at Hampton Roads
on the evening of the 8th, after the iron-clad Merrimac
had destroyed the wooden frigates Cumberland and
Congress. On the morning of the gth a memorable
and indecisive battle was fought by the Merrimac and
Monitor, the former of which was partly disabled and
abandoned the fight, after several violent collisions with
the Monitor. He was raised to the rank of commander
in the summer of 1862, became a captain in February,

operations against Fort Sumter in April of that year.
He was made commodore in 1868, rear-admiral in

ermouth, in Cumberland, in 1774, was father of the
preceding, and a brother of the celebrated poet, noticed
below. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge,
where he took the degree of M.A. in 1799. He was
successively appointed chaplain to the House of Com-
mons, master of Trinity College, and rector of Buxted
and Uckfield. He was the author of " Ecclesiastical
Biography, or the Lives of Eminent Men connected with
the History of Religion in England," (6 vols. 8vo, 1809,)
"Christian Institutes," (4 vols. 8vo, 1837,) a collection
of sermons, and two works on the authorship of " Icon
Basilike." Died in 1846.

Wordsworth, (CHRISTOPHER,) D.D., youngest son
of the preceding, was born about 1808. He studied at

of M.A., and soon after entered into holy orders. He
became head-master of Harrow School in 1835, and in
1850 vicar of Stanford-in-the-Vale, and Bishop of Lincoln
in 1869. Among his principal works are " Athens and
Attica: Journal of a Residence there," (1836,) "Theo
philus Anglicanus, or Instruction for the Young Studerv

Wordsworth, (WILLIAM,) an illustrious English
poet, born at Cockermouth, in Cumberland, on the 7th
of April, 1770, was a son of John Wordsworth, attorney-
at-law, and Anne Cookson. About 1778 he was sent
with his elder brother to the school of Hawkshead, Lan-
cashire, where he remained until his eighteenth year.
Here, about the age of fifteen, he wrote, as a task or
school-exercise, "The Summer Vacation," in verse. In
October, 1787, he entered Saint John's College, Cam-
bridge. He was impatient of control, and, like Milton,
was averse to the studies and discipline of his college.
According to his own account, he "got into rather an
idle way, reading nothing but classic authors according
to my fancy, and Italian poetry." " He did not tread
in the beaten path prescribed by academic authority

xplanations, p. 23 )




ind leading to academic distinctions." ("Memoirs of
Wordsworth," by his nephew.) In the summer and
autumn of 1790 he spent his vacation in a pedestrian tour
through France and among the Alps. "At the Lake of
Como," he writes, "my mind ran through a thousand
dreams of happiness which might be enjoyed upon its
banks, if heightened by conversation and the exercise
of the social affections." He took his degree of B.A.
in January, 1791.

Wordsworth hailed the French Revolution, at first,
with enthusiasm, and felt a strong impulse to take an
active part in it He went to Paris in the autumn of
1791, and afterwards passed several months at Orleans,
where he learned to speak French. In October, 1792,
he was again in Paris, and was intimately connected
with the Girondists. " He longed to remain at Paris,"
says his nephew, "but, happily for him, circumstances
obliged him to return to England," where he arrived
about the end of 1792. Although he was disappointed
by the course of events in France, he still clung with
tenacity to his republican principles, which he avowed
in letters written after his return from France. Some
of his friends advised him to take holy orders ; but he
had insuperable objections to the clerical profession.
"As for the law," said he, "I have neither strength of
mind, purse, nor constitution to engage in that pursuit."

He opened his literary career by the publication of
two poems, "The Evening Walk, addressed to a Young
LaJyV" (1793,) and "Descriptive Sketches taken during
a Pedestrian Tour among the Alps," (1793.) His pecu-
niary circumstances at this period were distressing. In
November, 1794, he requested a friend to procure him
employment as a contributor to a London paper, and
insisted that it must be an organ of the opposition.
He was relieved from the pressure of poverty, in 1795,
by a legacy of 900 from his friend R. Calvert. In
1795 or '796 ne settled at Racedown, Dorsetshire, with
his sister Dorothy, who exercised a great and salu-
tary influence over him. She cheered his spirits, and
counteracted his morbid tendencies. He tells us in
his "Prelude" that she "maintained for me a saving
intercourse with my true self." His next production
was "Salisbury Plain; or, Guilt and Sorrow," (1796.)
In June, 1797, S. T. Coleridge visited Wordsworth at
Racedown. To enjoy the society of Coleridge, Words-
worth and his sister removed to Alfoxden in August,
1797. He wrote there a number of short poems, which
were published under the title of "Lyrical Ballads,"
(1798,) and were but coldly received. He passed the
winter of 1798-99 in Germany, whither he went in
company with Coleridge. On his return he settled at
Grasmere, where he resided until 1808. He married
Mary Hutchinson in 1802, and about the same time
inherited nearly 1800 of his father's estate.

In 1805 he finished a long autobiographical poem,
called "The Prelude," containing an account of the
cultivation and development of his own mind, in four-
teen books, which remained in manuscript until his
death. " I began this work," says the author, " because
I was unprepared to treat any more arduous subjects."
Henceforth he resolved to devote his energies to a phi-
losophical poem, entitled "The Recluse."

He published in 1807 two volumes of poetry, contain-
ing numerous odes, sonnets, etc. His poetical reputa-
tion was not of rapid growth. He had some ardent
admirers, but he was severely criticised by Lord Jeffrey
and other critics, who designated Wordsworth, Cole-
ridge, and Southey as the Lake School of poets, because
they lived in the lake district of Cumberland and West-
moreland and described the scenery of that beautiful
region. Wordsworth resided several years at Allan
Bank, near Grasmere. He wrote the letter-press of an
illustrated work, entitled "Select Views in Cumberland,
Westmoreland, and Lancashire," published in 1810 by
J. Wilkinson.

In 1813 he removed, with his wife, sister, and three
surviving children, to Rydal Mount, on Lake Winder-
mere, and about two miles distant from Grasmere. Here
he continued to reside until his death. He published in
1814 a didactic poem entitled "The Excursion," which
is a portion of "The Recluse," and contains episodes

of great beauty, pathos, and grandeur. It was con-
demned by the reviewers, and not appreciated by th
public, who purchased only five hundred copies in si
years. His literary efforts brought him no remunera-
tion ; but his appointment to the office of distributor of
stamps, in 1813, raised his income to an easy compe-
tence. It was worth about five hundred pounds a year.
In 1815 he produced "The White Doe of Rylstone."
Among his other works are "Peter Bell," (1819,) "Ec-
clesiastical Sonnets," and " Yarrow Revisited, and other
Poems," (1835.)

His poetry is remarkable as evincing an exquisite sen-
sibility to the beauties of nature under every form ; and
one result of this mental peculiarity was that nearly all
his poems were, as he tells us, composed in the open air.

He received a pension of .300 per annum in 1842, and
was recognized as the greatest living poet of England
when he succeeded Southey as poet-laureate, in 1843.
In his mature age he was conservative in politics, and
a devout member of the Anglican Church. He died
at Rydal Mount on the 23d of April, 1850.

" Wordsworth," says Robert Caruthers, " was more
original and philosophical than any of his great con-
temporaries, and he has sent forth strains that recall the
divine genius of Milton. . . . His taste was not equal to
his genius ; the power or will to discriminate, reject,
and condense was wanting. . . . Some of his odes and
minor poems have never been excelled." (See " Ency-
clopaedia Britannica," article " Wordsworth.") Robert
Southey, who was his intimate friend, wrote in a letter
to B. Barton, December 19, 1814, " His life does not
belie his writings; for in every relation of life and every
point of view h': is a truly exemplary and admirable
man. In conversation he is powerful beyond any of
his contemporaries, and as a poet ... I declare my
full conviction that posterity will rank him with Milton.

"The fame of Wordsworth," says Ralph W. Emer-
son, "is a leading fact in modern literature, when it is
considered hov/ hostile his genius at first seemed to
the reigning taste, and with what feeble talent his great
and growing dominion has been established. . . . 'The
Excursion' awakened in every lover of Nature the right
feeling." (See " Fraser's Magazine" for July, 1868.)

" Whatever influence," says the " Quarterly Review,"
"Wordsworth may have exercised on poetic style, be it
great or small, was by deviating in practice from the
principles of composition for which he contended- . . .
In spite of the cloudy and unsubstantial philosophy, and
its unsuitability to the condition of the principal speaker,
in spite, too, of long and frequent paragraphs of dreary
prosing, 'The Excursion' was yet a noble addition to
the English library. It owes its now universal recogni-
tion, as such, to the beauty of the pictures of rustic life
and rural scenes, with their exquisite accompaniment of
natural feeling. ... He has some of the most magical
lines and stanzas which are to be met with in the whole
body of literature; and ideas which seemed almost to
defy expression are not unfrequently conveyed in the
simplest, clearest, and happiest phrases."
