Charles Baudelaire was a French poet during the 19th century. He was not only very successful as a poet, but also as a translator, essayist and critic (“Charles Baudelaire – Biography”). Baudelaire is most famous for his poetry and is regarded as one of the greatest French poets of all time. His work was some of the best of the 19th century, influencing the next generation of poets and those to come. He had a great impact on various literary movements such as Romanticism, Modernism, and Symbolism.
He was very influential in the Modernism era. William Butler Yeats was one of the most famous poets from the nineteenth century. Even though William Butler Yeats wrote both Victorian and Modernistic literature, he still had a large impact on the modernistic style. “After 1910, Yeats's dramatic art took a sharp turn toward a highly poetical, static, and esoteric style” (nobelprize.org). Even though Yeats was considered a patriot, “he deplored the hatred and bigotry of the Nationalist movement” This concern was new in the Modernism era.
“Byron’s influence on European poetry, music, novels, operas, and paintings have been immense, although the poet was widely condemned on moral grounds by his contemporaries” (Dick, 54). Overall, the study focuses on the life of Lord George Gordon Byron, imagery, and about the lyrics of “She Walks in Beauty”. Lord Byron was an English Romantic poet and satirist whose poetry and personality captured the imagination of Europe. As his name would show, Byron was born into a noble English family. He lived the life as a beggar, and a proud and snobbish genius focused only to his own passions.

Ezra Pound, the most aggressively modern of these poets, made "Make it new!" his own battle cry. In London Pound encountered and encouraged his fellow friend in exile, T. S. Eliot, who wrote what is arguably the most famous poem of the twentieth century, "The Waste Land" using revolutionary techniques of composition, such as the collage. Both poets turned to untraditional sources for inspiration, Pound chose to turn to classical Chinese poetry and Eliot to the ironic poems of the 19th century French symbolist poet and then followed Pound to Europe and wrote poems which, in their extreme concision and precise visualization, most purely embodied his famous doctrine of Imagism.
