However, the reader can 't help but sense the fear and concern these romantic writers experienced during the Romanticism Era since it followed the Industrial Revolution and threatened a critical source of peace these individuals had which is nature. They thrived on literature, nature and imagination to glorify the present and paint it in the finest artistic way possible. We still enjoy these works of arts by simply holding a book and unleashing the power of imagination. Regarding to my personal reflection about the poem, it is a simple poem with lots of imagery. It is a very beautiful poem gives a close image of the purity and beauty of nature, and the deep human emotion inspired by the natural landscape.
Romanticism in ¨From Song of Myself¨ From song of myself, is a very open minded poem as the author Walt Whitman speaks so much in this poem about himself. Throughout the poem there is a variety of topics going on through every other line in where Walt Whitman declares that he is going to celebrate himself in his poem by all the personal opinions he provides in it. In this poem, Whitman explains how much he loves the world, especially nature and how everything fits together just as it should.

By providing the lines he provides, it reflects his individualism as well as gives ideas about the topic of his poem as the title says it clear that it is about himself.
Poets also use this technique of memory in poems making their poems more meaningful. Technically speaking, it is a fascinating way to write a poem and what will be discussed regarding this technique of 'memory' is the role of memory, good and bad effects of using this technique and the general idea behind using this technique. Specifically relating to a poem by William Wordsworth called "Composed a few miles above Tintern Abbey, on revisiting the banks of the Wye during a tour. July 13, 1798." Now speaking about role of memory, it has certain properties depending on the type of poem we are writing.

"Sonnet 30”, a classic poem written by the author William Shakespeare, showing the struggling past of the author. In his poem, he uses the Shakespearian sonnet form (also throughout the other 154 poems) to write his sonnet. In this analysis essay, I will be comparing my poem “Wandering Spring”, to the Shakespearean sonnet 30. I will be interpreting the reasons of me using the elements, figurative and sensory language that I chose for my own written poem. Showing the effect of the elements that I chose, also the effect of using the structure, “Shakespearian form”, how did it effect the poem and the audiences?
The way Whitman conveys his poems of the everyday man’s life in his time-period is presented by utilizing his realism style to connect to the audience and his gruesomely descriptive vocabulary. One way that Whitman conveys his poetry is through the eyes of the everyday man. In this period of American history, the civil war was ongoing, and his poetry did not shy away from the everyday
William McFeely suggests that Frederick Douglass, like Walt Whitman, has written a “Song of Myself” with his slave narrative. Both fairly known in their own time, I am going to look at how they compare and how they are different from each other. Frederick Douglass with his autobiographical slave narrative and Walt Whitman with his poem “Song of Myself”. The question becomes how Douglass creates himself through his narrative and how it compares to Whitman’s self in his poem. The wish to reach people is clear for both Whitman and Douglass.
Introduction Dejection- an Ode, written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1802 is considered central among his odes and is often expressed as his Swan Song. Depicting the deeply meditative temper of Coleridge, this poem is the essence of Coleridge’s poetic imagination and magic verse. It is composed during the later period of his poetic journey and presents highly anti Wordsworthian stance of nature. Written in a very plaintive mood, this poem mourns the consequences of losses and expresses the crucial role of imagination in attributing outside perception. Background To analyze the poem critically, it is very important to understand the milieu in which the poem was written, because this poem is highly autobiographical expressing the mental state of poet at that time.
Another formatting technique [?] is the use of enjambment every other line, “If you can keep your head when all about you | | Are losing their and blaming it on you”. This is interesting when coupled with the rhyme scheme as it forces you to stress some words mid-sentence that you wouldn’t normally put so much stress on, mainly the consistent use of the word you and your. I assume this is to draw focus to the fact that it is, ultimately, your own life to do with what you please. Another key component to the format of this poem is the constant conditional “if”, which is not only the title but also starts almost every line in the poem.
