The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe is a narrative poem which tells a story of a young man, wallowing in melancholy, as he grieves for the death of his lover named Lenore.

In speaking of William Wordsworth’s standards of poetry, one of them is that a poem should always be presented in an imaginative yet in a natural manner.

Despite Edgar Allan Poe and H.D. 's respective poems "To Helen" and "Helen" dealing with the same subject matter, their unique usage of subtle literary techniques allows them to communicate two very different messages.

H.D., on the other hand crafts a much darker picture of Helen and the tragedy she instigated. How the two poets manage to do this by focusing every aspect of their poems, from the title to the conclusion and everything in between, at communicating a specific theme.

William Wordsworth and Walt Whitman are two if the most influential poets in history and were rightfully respected in their times. While they lived in completely different parts of the world and wrote in different Romantic periods, they share many commonalities in their work.

In his poem London, 1802, Wordsworth is able to express his admiration for Milton and fears for his nation, all while adhering to the British Romanticism movement of his day.

Elements of poetry is a set of instruments used to create a poem. In this case, we used these elements to create productive songs. The song The End uses rhyme which is a repetition of similar sounds in two or more words. An example is presented in the second stanza in lines four and six, “You were the sun,” “My hands were your guns.” Rhyme is applied in these lines to support why he admires the woman. Assonance is the partial rhyme which has the same internal vowel sounds amongst different words.
In his poem “Song of Myself”, Whitman shows that he is really into himself. This celebration of himself reflects the Romantics ' obsession with individualism.

As the poet states, "every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you."
