May Summary A man walks through the countryside after a night of rain.
The creatures around him are lively and refreshed. At first, he shares their joy, but his mood soon turns as he reflects that care and pain are the inevitable balance to the care-free life he has lead so far: The man seems weighed down with care; he is so still he seems dead.
He greets the man and asks what he is doing. The old man is a leech-gatherer, leeches being needed by eighteenth-century doctors. He wanders the moors, sleeping outside, and thus makes a steady living.
The wanderer resolves not to give in to misery, but to think instead of the courage and firm mind of the leech gatherer.
Commentary Wordsworth had a firm belief in the wisdom of what he called "the common man" even if the common man needed his thoughts and feelings expressed by an elevated poet like himself. The leech gatherer has wisdom and fortitude that can elevate the wiser poet.
This was a revolution in poetry as poetry in earlier times had a pedantic function. A similar revolution occurred in Romantic medicine. Like the wandering poet, the physician is a being with a higher level of language and knowledge. The leech gatherer also reveals the economics that underlie medicinal practices.
Someone has to gather the leeches. Suffering and joy go hand in hand."Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood" (also known as "Ode", "Immortality Ode" or "Great Ode") is a poem by William Wordsworth, completed in and published in Poems, in Two Volumes ().

Our minds tell us, and history confirms, that the great threat to freedom is the concentration of power. Government is necessary to preserve our freedom, it is an instrument through which we can exercise our freedom; yet by concentrating power in political hands, it is also a threat to freedom.
Wordsworth flourished in these ideas in a poem called Independence and Resolution. In this poem Wordsworth shows the reader what he thinks his life is like and what he wants it to be like. In its essence, Resolution and Independence is an open book to what Wordsworth feels his life is like.4/4(1).
