William Wordsworth Music

Beethoven

Ludwig van Beethoven and William Wordsworth were both born in 1770. Both were major players in their fields, leading the way into Romanticism from the Classical era. Beethoven kept at it even after he was completely deaf.

Lee Boo

This U.K. group has just released "Blake Songs," an album of music set to the lyrics of Romantic poet William Blake's poetry. Check out songs like "The Echoing Green" and "The Tyger."

Wordsworth

William Wordsworth he's not. But Wordsworth—the Brooklyn-born hip-hop MC—is his own master of language. Extra Shmoop credit if you can work him into your English class presentation on the Romantics.
