'Home at Grasmere' is a highly spatial, autobiographical text about William Wordsworth’s decision to return to his native region (The Lake District) and set up home there with his sister Dorothy in 1799. Place, person and poetry are all vitally interconnected.  The poem begins with the poet recalling his own first vision of Grasmere as a boy running over the hilltop from Hawkshead and seeing the valley below him. The decision to return home is a hopeful and optimistic one (albeit shot through with self-doubt and anxiety about his ability to live up to his own expectations) and the maps of the poem to a large extent reflect this. All maps are strongly centred on a single core location and a dominant idyllic mood and state.
