Behold her, single in the field, Yon solitary Highland Lass! Reaping and singing by herself; Stop here, or gently pass! Alone she cuts and binds the grain, And sings a melancholy strain; O listen!

Will no one tell me what she sings? Some natural sorrow, loss, or pain, That has been, and may be again? We are immediately ordered to contemplate the young Scottish girl who is cutting and binding grain on her own. It is worth considering how Wordsworth emphasizes her solitariness in the first verse and how he describes her melancholy but beautiful singing.

The poem is clearly exploring the impact the girl and her song have upon the poet. How would you describe the way in which Wordsworth communicates his response?

What kinds of questions does he ask about the nature of her song, which he can hear, but not so well as to be able to make out the words?

Is she perhaps singing in a dialect that the poet would not understand? Wordsworth writes in iambic tetrameters here, and it is not difficult to notice alliteration, hyperbole and rhetorical questions, but what do these features contribute to the ballad?

Wordsworth believed in the power and beauty of nature, and this figure in the landscape reinforces that belief through her haunting and melodious singing. In celebrating nature and human emotions, he was an early leader of the English Romantic movement. Wordsworth had been caught up in the French Revolution, had fathered an illegitimate daughter with a young Frenchwoman and returned to England with radical and democratic ideas although his views became increasingly conservative in middle age.

He continued to live there for the rest of his life, with his wife, Mary, and his devoted sister, Dorothy. Back Why register?

The Solitary Reaper

Behold her, single in the field, Yon solitary Highland Lass! Reaping and singing by herself; Stop here, or gently pass! Alone she cuts and binds the grain, And sings a melancholy strain; O listen! No Nightingale did ever chaunt More welcome notes to weary bands Of travellers in some shady haunt, Among Arabian sands: A voice so thrilling ne'er was heard In spring-time from the Cuckoo-bird, Breaking the silence of the seas Among the farthest Hebrides. Will no one tell me what she sings?

Wordsworth’s Poetry

The poem functions to "praise the beauty of music and its fluid expressive beauty", the "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility" that Wordsworth identified at the heart of poetry. The poet says that anyone passing by should either stop or gently pass as not to disturb her. There is a controversy however over the importance of the reaper along with Nature. It was published in Poems, in Two Volumes in Behold her, single in the field, Yon solitary Highland Lass!

It is a pastoral snapshot of a young woman working alone in a field in the Highlands of Scotland, singing a plaintive song in Gaelic. The narrator is transfixed by the sight and sound of the titular figure, whose arresting voice fills the empty valley. Although he does not understand the language in which she sings, the narrator imagines that her song describes ancient tragedies or personal sorrows. The Solitary Reaper. Info Print Cite.
