    An Analysis of Neutral Tones by Thomas Hardy "We stood by a pond that winter day," (1) This line indicates a still quietness, with lack of the movement of life. There is a vast difference in appearance and movement around a pond in winter and a pond in the midst of summer. This indicates no leaves, and no visible signs of life. The poet is painting a stark and lifeless scene. "And the sun was white, as though chidden of God,"(2) This is indicative of the modernist approach to light as being

    feeling now is that Williams is the better of the two. A factor that I took into consideration was the tone and layout of both books.
