I would have to say that they're very similar in the way that they use nature as a way of portraying human life. The use of how nature affects them and their love for nature brings me to that conclusion. So what makes these pieces so powerful? Really it's not the reasoning between life and death; it's the comparison of how other living things on Earth that we take for granted are similar to us as a human race. When these two poets look at a flower or a sunset they see more than just a pretty flower or a beautiful sunset they see what life is made up of, which is wonderful at times and ugly at other times.
Therefore, the poet uses syntax and form to emphasize on the important matters that occurred in each stanza. To conclude, William Wordsworth uses form and syntax and figurative language to stress on his mental journey, and to symbolize the importance of the beauty and peace of nature. In my opinion, the poet might have written this poem to show his appreciation towards nature. The poem has a happy mood especially when the poet is discussing the daffodils. In this poem the daffodils are characterized as more than flowers, but as humans “fluttering and dancing in the breeze” (line 6).
The reader is able to see the “mountain-springs” (3) and the unripe fruit clade in their green hues (12-13). The poem, on the surface, is just that; a poet narrating a return. However, it is much more than that. It is about the connection between nature and the human nature to connect memories. The narrator’s return to a beloved place in nature.
Namely the fact that they were concerned with the world around us and the reality we experience as opposed to that of abstract concept of god or the supernatural as seen in other historical texts. This focus on nature is important because it sets the context in which the major theme of loss and separation originate from. In this poem the poet chooses to emphasize the passing of time in the choice of comparing the two seasons. Spring, in which life begins a new, and fall, in which the leaves begin to fall off and die. The poem reads “And the ones still green, sighing, leave upon the boughs- Those are the ones I hate to lose.
By interacting with nature the characters in both texts learn from the land, to create a relationship with the natural world. This interaction is very important for the characters to have a comprehensive understanding of the wild. Their worlds differ as a result of their historical contexts which they are written. The culture of the writers is reflected in their writing. Wordsworth feels a spiritual presence and gains happiness from it.
Therefore, he feels that he (and everyone else) can realize and experience the beauty of human existence by immersing himself in the landscape. And, like the oven bird, he imposes himself on the landscape through his individual essence (in Emerson's case his spirit). Despite the initial parallels with the Emersonian persona, the bird's song takes life and beauty away from the natural images that it describes, denying the immortal quality of nature. In "The Oven Bird," several natural images, traditionally symbolizing strength and beauty, construct a romantic landscape. But, these images are individually deconstructed, leaving the natural scene as a whole barren and hollow.
When analyzing his writing, Frost uses nature to show deeper in depth lesson... ... middle of paper ... ...ert Frost 's poems, I now see his poems in a different perspective. I once thought as many do, that Frost 's poems where about nature but now I know that Frost 's true intention was of “taking life by the throat” (Frost Interview). While others consider him as a nature poet, Frost doesn’t believe himself as one and we can see his perspective in his poems but especially in “Mowing,” “After Apple-Picking,” and “The Road Not Taken.” Frost actually uses nature as an analogy to human life experiences or the troubles that people go through. He reflects these poems back to his personal life and the struggles he has been through also. After researching and reading about Robert Frost I have became very fond his work and enjoy looking deeper into his work trying to picture what he truly meant.
He implicated nature with human actions and feelings, bringing the daffodils, the waves and other aspects of nature to life. “The emphasis on the happiness of the daffodils and their large number serves to point up sharply the isolation and dispiritedness of the speaker,” as Robert DiYanni quoted. The various words together with the other elements that William Wordsworth constructed in the poem not only reflected joy, but also nature’s harmony with human beings and their coexistence on earth.

Another Romantic poet, by the name of Percy Bysshe Shelley, shows great longing for the freedom that nature possesses and the freeing effect it has on him. These poets of the Romantic period look at nature from a higher consciousness called the imagination. William Wordsworth, through many of his poems, expresses the serene beauty contained in nature and its tranquilizing effects on human thoughts. In "Lines Composed a Few Miles from Tintern Abbey", the speaker looks "on nature...to chasten and subdue...the mind" and bring peace to his thoughts. Looking deeply into nature brings the feelings of sublime contentment and new feelings of inspiration that one cannot find in any alternate surrounding.
Two of his many poems, Song of Myself and When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer, exemplify the value of nature. Ralph Waldo Emerson has also become a famous Romantic author. He becomes known as the Father of Transcendentalism, as he believes that when people become independent and self-reliant within nature, they become their best selves. He later writes an essay, Nature, which expresses the value of nature. As these authors write their literature about nature, they illustrate the significance that it brings to oneself, community, God, and those relationships.
