Wordsworth and Coleridge, to sustain closeness, looked always for symbols that transcended disparity, drawing on values and experience that they held in common. This made two at least of their symbols — the city and childhood — vulnerable to the kinds of interpretation discussed. This chapter looks elsewhere for the importance of the city: in the poetry of 1797–1801. This chapter also explores the child as symbol from 1802–4.
