John Stuart Mill (1806–73)
Two autobiographical statements, amounting to a confession of a great debt owed to Wordsworth, are worth remembering. One describes Mill’s first encounter with Wordsworth’s poems, as printed in the two-volume edition of 1815. Reading them rescued Mill from a period of deep depression, which had begun in August 1826 and lasted through the autumn of 1828.
