Your explanation helped me understand the difference between emotions and feelings. I am learning English literature and came to be curious why William Wordsworth used the word, feelings, not emotions in his famous poetry book, Lyrical Ballads. The distinction feelings possess is that they should be caused by somatic sensations. Then what Wordsworth meant by powerful feelings and their demarcation in the poetry explains and amplifies its meanings. Thanks.
