Wordsworth's past holds great responsibility for his fixation on these different issues; memories and nature were key to helping him survive the trials he faced as a young boy. In Emma Mason's book "The Cambridge Introduction to William Wordsworth", she claims, "A longing for the company of others shaped Wordsworth’s life, one he met by forming a number of intense relationships" (1). It is these very relationships that both filled his need for affection, yet, at times, led him to feeling isolated and alone. At a young age his mother died of pneumonia and his sister, whom he was extremely close with, was forced to move in with an aunt.
