William Wordsworth’s The Prelude is his personal journey to a belief in Nature as the great moral and spiritual force which shapes human life, but on which human society all too often turned its back. “Nicholas Farrell’s narration is intimate, not pompous, or bombastic. He articulates Wordsworth’s ideas without forgetting this is verse but without overstressing the metrical regularity and variations.” (AudioFile)
