EDITOR'S NOTE.

pos

FOLLOWING, as the present edition does, the
last text of Wordsworth's lifetime, 1849-50,
"The Excursion” is given immediately after
the “Ode.

Intimations of Immortality."
"The Prelude” follows as a

of
thumous publication. Had this course not
been adopted, the whole of “The Excursion"
with Appendices and Indexes would have been
too bulky for one volume, and “The Excur-
sion" must have been divided between vol. vi.
and vol. vii., which would have been highly
undesirable. The reader, however, must bear
in mind that “The Prelude”

is a poem in-
troductory to the unfinished “ Recluse,” of
which «The Excursion,” designed for the
Second Part, was the only Part completed.

read before “The Excursion.”
