The World is too Much with Us

The World is too Much with Us

by William Wordsworth

Analysis: Tough-O-Meter

(3) Base Camp

Despite a few confusing phrases that can be interpreted in several ways, especially the title and "little we see in Nature that is ours" (3), Wordsworth's sonnet is relatively straightforward. There aren't a lot of difficult words, and most of the lines end with commas, which allows us to keep the different parts of the sentences neatly separated.
