Adam and Eve knew such perfection once,
God's finger within the cloud, and at the ground
Nothing yet springtime, not anything else at all.
But in our fallen nation the place the blood hunts
For blood, and rises on the looking sound,
What will we recognize of lasting because the fall?
Who has no longer, within the oil and warmth of youth,
Thought of the flourishing of the almond tree,
The grasshopper, and the failing of desire,
And idea his tongue may pierce the secrecy
Of the six-pointed starlight, and can choir
A secret-voweled, unutterable truth?

Chatterton was the archetypal unfulfilled, unrecognised genius, with the added political advantage of coming from the radical city of Bristol. For Wordsworth, Keats and Clare he was something of an ambiguous figure, in that his importance was intimately bound up with his early suicide. Although he had written a vast amount of verse, most of it was bogus; in the sense that Chatterton’s claims on posterity were to rest on the pretence that these ‘discovered’ poems, the so-called ‘Rowley’ poems, were the work of a forgotten medieval writer, he was also largely forgotten (hence the suicide).
But even this declaration is short-lived, and we are back with the doubts he would like to have banished, but cannot: And now, with gleams of half-extinguished thought, With many recognitions dim and faint, And somewhat of a sad perplexity, The picture of the mind revives again . . ‘Again’, again, to remind us of the necessity of repetition, even as, in doing so, it reminds us of repetition’s ultimate fickleness. Things in Wordsworth, as the ‘Immortality Ode’ puts it, ‘come and go’: the ‘fitting’ of the mind to nature does not imply ‘fixing’.
