Never-Ending Book Quiz
To which poet is Anne Brontë addressing these lines?
“Sweet are thy strains, celestial Bard;
And oft, in childhood’s years,
I’ve read them o’er and o’er again,
With floods of silent tears.
The language of my inmost heart,
I traced in every line;
My sins, my sorrows, hopes and fears,
Were there – and only mine.
All for myself the sigh would swell,
The fear of anguish start;
I little knew what wilder woe
Had filled the Poet’s heart.”
Choose the correct answer:William Blake William Cowper John Donne John Milton John Newton William Shakespeare
