his prose writings-Noctes Ambrosiane; Lights and Shadows of Scottish Life; and Trials of Margaret Lyndsay. In poetry, The Isle of Palms and The City of the Plague are his chief effusions.

Rev. CHARLES WOLFE (1791–1823) was born in Dublin, and became a clergyman of the Church of England. He is best known as the author of this beautiful Ode, but other pieces of merit came from his pen.

WILLIAM WORDSWORTH (1770-1850). --Artificial forms and conventional phrases had almost reduced English poetry to a heap of dry bones, when Wordsworth came forward and again imbued it with life. Born at Cockermouth, in Cumberland, he early learned to draw his inspiration from the great Book of Nature alone. Nature he loved as a personal being—as a living thing whose great thoughts are in harmony with the spirit of man. As a consequence of this, freshness and simplicity, enriched by a vein of pure philosophy, characterise all his works. He was appointed stamp-distributer for Westmoreland, an office which he held for thirty years. On the death of Southey, he became Poet-laureate, and continued the guiding star of polite literature till his death on 23d April 1850.
