The Great War During the 18th century, World War One took place because of the assassination of the archduke of Austria-Hungary, Franz Ferdinand. World War One, also known as the Great War, was one of the greatest wars in the United States history. With it being one of the greatest wars helped inspired a lot of poets to write about it such as Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon. Wilfred Owen, the oldest of four children born into rapid success, was born on March 18, 1893 and died November 4, 1918. Owens only published five poems about World War One in his lifetime, but he wrote some of the best British poetry (Poetryfoundation.org).
If this did not happen, the story would feel like a bare tree in the winter after all its beautiful leaves were stolen by the wind. However, some stories don’t necessarily need a “hailing” to feel complete. They just won’t make the cut for the hero’s journey. That's where one of Charles Dickens’ most popular novels A Christmas Carol fits in. Unlike Katniss, Scrooge does not get a big celebration in his honor.
The poem encompasses the romantic movement from his experience at the abbey. William Wordsworth composed "A Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey" in a blank verse, which allows the lines of style to be fluid and natural. There are four stanzas and each stanza captures the essence of nature in his life. As the poem progresses, there are indents that indicate a new stanza and the focus shifts or topics. The blank verse enables Wordsworth to easily alter topics to describe his emotions, past memories, and the impact of nature.
In the poem Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost has many similarities to The Outsiders . The poem represents the cycle of life through many seasons . Spring represents rebirth and renewal of life.

American poet, Robert Frost in his melancholy poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay” presents the idea of nothing good lasting forever while using nature as a paradigm. This is represented through seasons with each season representing a different mood or stage in the cycle of growth. He develops his message through the personification of nature to show the drastic changes of plants. Specifically, this is presented in first couplet of the poem “Nature 's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.” The line mentioned is giving nature human characteristics of possession and movement to enhance the meaning behind the words relating to the spring season. Additionally, symbolism is scattered throughout like the use of the biblical paradise Eden.
Robert Frost’s Nothing Gold Can Stay is about the color gold and how hard it is for nature to hold this particular color. Nature’s leaf blooms to a flower, but that moment in time is short, because things that bloom can also die quickly like the crocuses that appear at the beginning of spring. The color gold appears again when dawn is used in the poem, but like every other line, the gold of dawn soon fades to the blue of day. This poem has a rather simple theme of impermanence. This is a rather broad theme, as it could be the impermanence of beauty or good things that fade off after a short time.
‘… he never left the lyric for long’- this suggests that he left it and that was for a brief period of time. Untermeyer is obviously referring to Frost’s second anthology North of Boston. It is here he deviates from the lyric into the experimental blank verse monologues and dramatic narratives. In the entire Frost oeuvre it stands out as a different thing, in the sense that here he ‘says’ the poems of any social significance. Louis Bogan in his article ‘Achievement in American Poetry’ puts it rightly: ‘In North of Boston Frost briefly possessed himself of a humane realism and insight…’ (Nitchie, Human Values in the Poetry of Robert Frost

The Wordsworth acknowledges how he has change from the last time he was there. As a child, he saw nature consist of waterfalls, mountains, trees, and sky.
