We Are Seven By William Wordsworth

- William Wordsworth’s poem “We are Seven” from his Lyrical Ballads explores the complex theme of death through its effects on the living and the ways in which people think of those they have lost. The narrative is composed of a conversation between an adult male speaker and an eight-year-old girl, with the central focus on the girl’s two deceased siblings.

Nature Explored in the Poems of William Wordsworth

- As time passes it is said that the human race becomes less aware of nature around them and more consumed with the things produced by man. The romantic poet William Wordsworth saw the cultural decline and as the literary critic Harold Bloom stated, “The fear of mortality haunts much of Wordsworth’s best poetry, especially in regard to the premature mortality of the imagination and the loss of creative joy.” This statement greatly reflects the views of Wordsworth, whose poetry conveys the warning of a man asking those enveloped in the world to step back and recognize the beauty and miracles of nature....   [tags: literary analysis, william wordsworth]

The Romantic Era Of William Wordsworth

- Nature’s beauty can be seen all around us and has been and will always be there for us to appreciate; yet the way we experience and interpret nature is ever changing. The Romantic Era was a literary movement that gave a new attitude towards nature that was unique and spiritual. The Romantic movement, beginning around 1798, and carrying on well into the mid 1800s, expanded into almost every corner of Europe, into the United States, and Latin America. The ideology of the romantic era, of being completely humanistic, was the opposite of the new ideas of logic and reason of the Enlightenment....   [tags: Romanticism, William Wordsworth, J. M. W.

The Extraordinary Leech Gatherer By William Wordsworth

- The Extraordinary Leech Gatherer Wordsworth straightforwardly explained the theme of the poem in its title, Resolution and Independence. He ran into an old man, when he was wandering on the moors. To some extent, Wordsworth saw the silhouette and even the image of himself on the old leech gatherer. At the same time, Wordsworth made this old man his role model, when he thought of himself without any more ambitions and courage in the end. The spirits of this hard working and noble man would save himself from those melancholy thoughts....   [tags: William Wordsworth, Poetry, Moors, Nobility]

Analysis Of ' The Quintessence Of Romanticism ' By William Wordsworth And Samuel Coleridge

During my research, I learned that it was not love for an individual, but the love of nature, freedom, and imagination. “The quintessence of Romanticism is perhaps best revealed by setting forth its concepts of the Imagination-what it is, what it is not, how it functions, and why it is of greatest importance in human life” (Bernbaum 323).

Specifically, we could apply this statement to poets the ilk of Wordsworth, who eschewed poetic affectations and “tricked out” language for sentiments that originated and flowed naturally (Wordsworth 270). Yet Eliot hadn’t focused his critical eye there, this time. Rather, he squinted a century back to a lesser-referenced literary group, the Metaphysical poets (Eliot 2328)....   [tags: Poetry Wordsworth Vaughan Essays]

It is at this point in the poem that Wordsworth resumes his writing after a two-year hiatus. In the fourth stanza, he poses the question, “Whither is fled the visionary gleam?” Stanza five is the beginning of his own answers to that question. Contrary to popular enlightenment ideas, Wordsworth suggests that rather than become more knowledgeable with age, man if fact is born with “vision splendid” and as he ages, that vision “dies away” and he left empty....   [tags: Wordsworth Ode immortality intimations Essays]

- The female figures in Wordsworth’s poetry, such as Lucy in the Lucy poems and his sister Dorothy in “Tintern Abbey,” are essentially blank, idealized screens onto which the poet projects his musings of nature or his recollections of his past self. Although Wordsworth appears to be enraptured by and loving of these female figures, nothing of their personalities, aspirations, or words are ever revealed to the reader. The elusiveness of these women gives them a two-dimensional quality and makes the invocation of these female figures seem like its sole function in the poem is to be an instrument through which Wordsworth can convey his beliefs....   [tags: Poetry, William Wordsworth, Woman, Female]
