Write a note on the poet’s attitude towards the city in the poem, ‘Upon Westminster Bridge’.

William Wordsworth in ‘Upon Westminster Bridge’, opines that the beauty of the city of London in the early morning, viewed from Westminster Bridge, surpasses all fair things on earth. The city wears the garment of the beauty of the morning. Thus, the noise and the ugly face of the city are hidden. The light of the morning sun and the smokeless atmosphere reveal the beauty of ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples. The river glides silently. The poet had never seen such beauty and calmness in valleys. rocks or hills. The city merges with the countryside. reflecting Wordsworth’s Pantheistic attitude.
