1.14 The Prospectus

In 1814 he made public The Excursion as the second part of the three-part The Recluse.
He had not finished the first and third parts, and never would. 

He did, on the other hand, write a poetic Prospectus to "The Recluse" in which he lays out the structure and intent of the poem.

The Prospectus encloses some of Wordsworth's most famous lines on the relation between the human mind and nature: 

My voice proclaims
How exquisitely the individual Mind
(And the progressive powers perhaps no less
Of the whole species) to the external World
Is fitted:--and how exquisitely, too,
Theme this but little heard of among Men,
The external World is fitted to the Mind.

A number of modern critics recognize a decline in his works beginning around the mid-1810s.
But this decline was possibly more a change in his lifestyle and beliefs, since most of the issues that differentiate his early poetry (loss, death, endurance, separation and abandonment) were resolved in his writings. 

But, by 1820, he enjoyed the accomplishment accompanying a reversal in the contemporary critical opinion of his earlier works.
Subsequent the death of his friend the painter William Green in 1823, Wordsworth mended relations with Coleridge.

The two were completely reconciled by 1828, when they toured the Rhineland together.
Dorothy suffered from a rigorous illness in 1829 that rendered her an invalid for the remainder of her life. 

In 1835, Wordsworth gave Annette and Caroline the money they needed for sustain.
