Charles Lamb met Wordsworth in London during the summer of 1797. His pleasant manners, as well as his serene acceptance of the shortcomings of others, impressed Wordsworth, who soon found multiple occasions to praise Lamb’s writings (both prose and poems) for having provided him with ‘April weather of smiles & tears’, his command of Latin, and his sensible critical judgments.
