Although Wordsworth appears to be enraptured by and loving of these female figures, nothing of their personalities, aspirations, or words are ever revealed to the reader. The elusiveness of these women gives them a two-dimensional quality and makes the invocation of these female figures seem like its sole function in the poem is to be an instrument through which Wordsworth can convey his beliefs....   [tags: Poetry, William Wordsworth, Woman, Female]
