Wordsworth's great sonnet is a celebration of the beauty of London at dawn. This film explores exactly how the poem came about at this crucial turning point in Wordsworth's life. Owen looks at how the apparently simple poem is built and explores how Wordsworth's admiration of Milton's sonnets encouraged him to adopt the form for his 1802 London sonnets. He also examines how other poets characterized London in the early nineteenth century before turning to contemporary poets, including Patience Agbabi and Tobias Hill, to discuss 21st century visions of London and to hear work inspired by Wordsworth.
