Wordsworth?s younger sister and close confidante Dorothy (1771-1855) was also an accomplished writer; he praised her lavishly in ?Tintern Abbey?? While traveling in France, Wordsworth fathered a daughter, Caroline (b. 1792) with a woman named Annette Vallon; they were never married. In 1802 Wordsworth married a childhood friend, Mary Hutchinson? The title of the 1961 movie Splendor in the Grass (starring Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty) was taken from a line in Wordsworth?s ode ?Intimations of Immortality,? which reads: ?Though nothing can bring back the hour / Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower.?
