Eliot uses in "Tradition and the Individual Talent" but which also indicate the tension in Wordsworth's position at the point where Renaissance and Romantic theory meet: The predecessors of an original Genius of high order will have smoothed the way for all that he has in common with them;and much he will have in common; but, for what is peculiarly his own, he will be called upon to clear and often to shape his own road;- he will be in the condition of Hannibal among the Alps.

The Westminster Election or the Borough of Honiton .. Mr Fox, who had earlier been assumed by Wordsworth to be a natural member of that educated public which he had once taken as at least a possible audience for his poetry, has gone over to the enemy; he is now one of the Public, one of these people who "in the senseless hurry of their idle lives do not read books", but merely "snatch a glance at them". The vanity and selfishness of the Public come between it and Wordsworth's poems. " The language makes it unambiguously clear that Wordsworth equates an ability to read his poetry with a form of salvation; it is a poetry, indeed, for all men, but only the Elect can receive it.

This astonishing remark is followed by the prophetic fear that "the perpetually supplied stimulus of Novels" will divert the interest of people from poetry. By I 833 he calmly accepts that there is not much "genuine relish" for poetry in Cumberland and that his own poems do not sell there; but he is still confident in I835 that "Posterity will settle all accounts justly, and that works which deserve to last will last".
