    “2020 marks 250 years since the birth of William Wordsworth, one of England’s most celebrated poets. Wordsworth and his friend and colleague Samuel Taylor Coleridge were pioneers of English Romanticism and they produced works including The Excursion, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and The Prelude.
    Religion and nature were great sources of inspiration and debate for both men. Wordsworth’s childhood home, The English Lake District, was alive with different and often ‘dissenting’ ideas about Christianity but what influence did these ideas have on his work? Did Wordsworth and Coleridge share a common idea of the nature of God and what resonance does their work have today?”
