Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass,
Of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind.

Just as Wordsworth's poem opens itself up to numerous interpretations, so too
does the Victorian Studies Association of Ontario wish to open its conference
to the consideration of a range of subjects around Victorian notions of nature,
splendour, spirit, and knowledge.
