Looking deeply into nature brings the feelings of sublime contentment and new feelings of inspiration that one cannot find in any alternate surrounding. In Wordsworth's "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," the speaker, when "in vacant or in pensive mood," recalls a memory of a past picturesque outdoor scene that "is the bliss of [his] solitude." His mind's pencil edges a lasting portrait of a scene in nature and the emotions of its beauty in the speaker's mind. The "dancing daffodils" will stay with the speaker even when the original drawing has faded. Another poem, "Composed upon Westminster Bridge," expresses the lulling atmosphere of the early morning and its encompassing calm a... ... middle of paper ... ...s are "profuse strains of unpremeditated art," singing exactly what it feels, without restraint.
Keats instead has a more complex, furher apart rhyming scheme of “ABABCDEDECE”. The main message of the poem “To Autumn” is that autumn is rich, and it is sent out ina more formal way then “Daffodils” where the message id more personal because it is Wordsworth’s feelings and he sends them straight to you by using often the word “I” and giving it an endering informality. Both poets send out a similar message in all theur poems for they both wrote in the romantic period and they both believed that nature was more powerful than man, thet we all had to respect it and celebrate the beauty it had created on earth. Perhaps it was his informality and personal approach, and his simpler language, which made Wordsworth mroe popular than Keats.
Furthermore, He was inspired by Dorothy and Coleridge and other poets as well. William Wordsworth had written mostly for his poetic beliefs and political situation. I notice that he was a key to the Romanticism. You can also see William Wordsworth wanted to create poetry that had reunited the readers with their true feelings and emotions. People generally see the poems with rhyming and flow at first, in this case “I Wandered as a Lonely Cloud” by William Wordsworth has a rhyme to it which is (ABABCC).
We can see Wordsworth's use of imagery and emotion at its best. We can see that the poet holds daffodils and nature in high regard. The poem has a lot of nature images that you can practically see: the trees, the water, the stars and the daffodils. Unlike " Upon Westminster Bridge" which I feel is slightly sarcastic. In " The daffodils" Wordsworth's tone is merry and flows quickly and nicely; it's like he is creating a painting not a poem.
Rather than describe how the poets' loves have changes, both the poets quantify their love and show this sensation through descriptive writing and similes. As it can be seen from this analysis, much of the poetry written prior to the 19th Century was devoted to many types of love, both the sensations and feelings related to this subject, and also the poet attempting to capture in writing how the feeling of being in love has changed him or her both for better and for worse. In the case of the poets discussed here, it is obvious that for those poets, love was experienced as both a burden and an inspiration, as something to long for, and as something to resist. Regardless it is obvious that for these poets, love did serve to change them forever.
By doing this, he enhances the antiquity of the historical sites, while at the same time, appreciating the natural tranquility and beauty. One of the first landmarks Bashō writes about in his narrative is the shrine located on the Nikkō Mountains. He explains that the mountain’s original name was “Nikōsan” meaning “Two-Storm Mountain”, until “The Great Teacher Kūkai” renamed it “Nikkō”, meaning sunlight, when he established the temple. Bashō combines the historical significance of the shrine with the serenity and refuge the place appears to give through its natural sunlight and landscape. In response, Bashō writes, “Ah, awesome sight!/on summer leaves and spring leaves,/the radiance of the sun!” (Bashō, p.609), in which he ends his visit to the shrine.
Also characteristic of the Romantic sonnet is the retreat from the neo-classical age and its significant historical references into a new age where it becomes common to speak of "nothing." In William Wordsworth's "Composed Upon Westminster Bridge," there is no deeper meaning to be grasped other than the beauty of the day's dawning. The speaker's view of the morning and its "majesty" and the "calm" that comes over the speaker are central ideas in the poem (ll. 3, 11). In this sonnet, it is again apparent how influential and prevalent nature is.
To do so Blake exploits the traditional poetic conventions of persona, form, language, tone and atmosphere. The persona of both 'Laughing Song and 'London'; is Blake himself. However he is writing in two opposing states of mind. 'Laughing Song'; comes from the Songs of Innocence, a collection of celebratory poems, offering a view of the world with the 'voice of joy' though perhaps through rose-coloured glasses. Blake is simply enjoying nature, and through this is therefore praising God.

Some of the things stressed by the Romantics were synaesthesia, intuition, and "e`talage du moi" or the "display of the self" (Perkins 9).

This ability to write so extensively and from so many different viewpoints of Innocence and Experience could almost be called its own religion with a separate mythology and players. This again was amazingly ahead of his time and is on par with Milton as the epic of choice for all of English literature. Blake, as described beforehand, came for all intents and purposes in between the Augustans and the Romantics.
