Abstract: The article deals with recurrent images in Wordsworth’s poetry. The employment of recurrent images in Romantic poetry shows great mastery. Powerful emotions manifest themselves in the undulating flow of images, with their rise and ebb or rhythmic repetition. Their quick succession marks the movement of the emotion, for they vary in their power, intensity and frequency and run as a bright fibre, symbolic of the whole. The mastery of creating poetic imagery is shown in the use of recurrent images, through which the imagination is stirred without even realizing the presence of any symbols. These images are symbolic of the whole, repeated as a leitmotiv, running as a nerve, carrying essence of the passion, which manifests itself in its frequent overflow. Wordsworth’s poetic style is under the influence of an emotional and imaginative predominance, and the images we meet are more often described not for themselves, but for the feeling and idea they convey.

Key words: poetry, recurrent images, symbol, imagination, image, leitmotiv, gradation, associations, philosophical point, ideas.
