An introduction to Wordsworth’s classic daffodils poem

Often known simply as ‘Daffodils’ or ‘The Daffodils’, Wordsworth’s poem that begins ‘I wandered lonely as a cloud’ is, in many ways, the quintessential English Romantic poem. Its theme is the relationship between the individual and the natural world. Here is the poem, followed by a short analysis of its themes, meaning, and language.

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
