Wordsworth's Ode: Intimations of Immortality

- Wordsworth's Ode: Intimations of Immortality The fifth stanza of Wordsworth’s “Ode: Intimations of Immortality” is especially interesting to me because of the images it presents. 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]

In the poem, William Wordsworth speaks very highly of Toussaint L'Ouverture. This is kind of surprising because Toussaint L'Ouverture was a black man, and black men weren't held in that great of standards during Wordsworth's times....   [tags: Poetry]

Lines Written in the Early Spring, by William Wordsworth

- In his poem, 'Lines Written in the Early Spring,' William Wordsworth gives us insight into his views of the destruction of nature.
