The World Is Too Much With Us by William Wordsworth

My comics adaptation of William Wordsworth’s sonnet “The World Is Too Much With Us” (composed circa 1802), in which the Romantic poet decries the societal changes brought about by the Industrial Revolution. This comic originally appeared in the January 2017 issue of the Italian poetry magazine Atelier, accompanied by an Italian translation by Francesca Benocci. This collaborative project was part of the exploratory “Partners in Rhyme” series, in which I adapted some short English-language poems into comics which Francesca would then translate into Italian in such a way as to take into account my accompanying illustrations:
