Was Wordsworth one of the poets Pound was trying to channel?

----

The only reference Pound ever made to Wordsworth, if my memory serves, was a
sarcastic reference to the "Wordsworthian" in Homage to Sextus Propertius.
Wordsworth wrote so much dull poetry after 1805 that it is easy for some to
ignore his enormous achievement through that year.
