This PowerPoint Presentation on the poem "The Solitary Reaper" by William Wordsworth is one of my favourite poems for Wordsworth's great sense of love towards nature and aesthetic beauty. I have been teaching this poem along with some other Wordsworthian poems for my B.A. Degree students and External English Course (BUSL/EEC/Programme) students for the last 7 years or so. I certainly enjoy teaching Wordsworth poetry as I am a great fan of this great romantic poet. Rev. Nivitigala Sumitta Thero (sumitta2012@gmail.com; +94-714428905). I shall be highly obliged if you send me your feedbacks on this slideshow.

  15. 15. Whateer the theme, the Maiden sangAs if her song could have no ending;I saw her singing at her work,And oer the sickle bending;--I listend, motionless and still;And, as I mounted up the hill,The music in my heart I bore,Long after it was heard no more. sumitta2012@gmail.com/+94-714428906 15
