The Prelude; or, Growth of a Poet's Mind is an autobiographical, 'philosophical' poem in blank verse by the English poet William Wordsworth. Wordsworth wrote the first version of the poem when he was 28, and worked over the rest of it for his long life without publishing it. He never gave it a title; he called it the 'Poem (title not yet fixed upon) to Coleridge' and in his letters to Dorothy Wordsworth referred to it as 'the poem on the growth of my own mind.' The poem was unknown to the general public until published three months after Wordsworth's death in 1850, its final name given to it by his wife Mary.
