Between Memory and History: Wordsworth's Excursion
http://users.ox.ac.uk/~scat0385/memory.html
"Despite – or perhaps, because of – its own mixed reception history, The Excursion (1814) remains an interesting comment on the process of historical and cultural change. Like The Prelude (1850), the poem addresses the status of the self, the passage of time, and memory – issues that have revived critical interest in the poem over the last two decades. As the arguments of critics like William H. Galperin and David Simpson have implied, The Excursion engages with these issues by “displacing” them as symptoms or “anxieties.” The poem seems to indicate Wordsworth's revision, or at least his questioning, of assumptions about self, imagination, and memory on which The Prelude operated. Instead of undertaking a further interrogation of the poem's "anxieties" in this essay, I want to suggest another way of reading them – a reading that also suggests a schema for re-reading critical and editorial interventions that seek to determine any poem's meaning."

The Poetics of Place and Time in Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey"
http://prometheus.cc.emory.edu/panels/2A/Z.Sng.html
Text of a paper given at the 1996 "Graduate Student Conference in Romanticism." It argues that the poem "is, today, a ruin--a textual trace whose meaning is constituted by temporal and spatial references that have fallen away. It has been set adrift from its proper historical and geographical site, subjected to a series of displacements--an errance."
