This essay offers strategies for teaching two of Landon’s poems, “Age and Youth” and “The Thessalian Fountain,” alongside two frequently taught poems by Wordsworth, the “Intimations” ode and “Nutting.” Such a comparative approach makes the work of both poets accessible to students while addressing Landon’s place in the Romantic canon.
