Description

Wordsworth depicted Newton, as Roubiliac may well have done in his statue of him, as voyaging, in ecstasy, through God's sensorium. In the Prelude passage from which the title A Mind For Ever Voyaging is derived, and in various others portraying Newton and science, Wordsworth seems to have written for two audiences, the general public and a much smaller, private audience, while seeking to elevate the minds of both to God. Like Pope before him, Wordsworth achieved "What oft was wrought, but ne'er so well exprest."
