Description

'No familiar shapes
Remained, no pleasant images of trees,
Of sea or sky, no colours of green fields'.

In this extract from the prelude of his epic autobiographical narrative poem, Wordsworth describes experiencing the power of nature one secret and solitary summer evening while on a boat in a lake in his native Cumbria.

This lesson plan examines Wordsworth's descriptions and sentence length, and ends with an imaginative writing task.

This extract from 'The Prelude' by William Wordsworth is one of 15 poems in AQA's 'Power and Conflict' cluster in the latest GCSE English literature specification. Our lesson plan helps students become intimately familiar with the poem, its meaning and context.
