‘Beyond this place of wrath and tears…’ and ‘It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll…’, he conveys the message that even though he doesn’t know what’s coming on his way, he is unafraid and ready for life, and with the time that is left , he will continue to master his Fate. The most controversial line is ‘I am the Master of my Fate’, because even if he claims that he is unsure of the next occurrences of his life, he says that he will try to master it.This is a hard problem to deal with, because even if we identify freedom of will with our complete spontaneity,we have to understand how such volition can also come from God
Keats’s reasoning to be “steadfast as thou [the star] art,” stems from his desire to be with his lover forever. In light of the fact that at this time in Keats is in his last stages of life, he speaks from experience and sees the star not as a social symbol like Frost, but as something that will live for a long, long time-- unlike himself. The structure of the the Italian sonnet is almost necessary in this poem, as he can easily pose a question and answer and compare a complex feeling of wanting to live forever with the simple idea of a bright star. This Italian sonnet ends with a rhyming couplet to lighten the topic of the poem. As the poem is about death and love, Keats knows he needs to contrast the solemness of such topics with something

Life allows people to discover themselves by escaping reality and welcoming imagination.

At the start of his poem Hayden writes, “This freedom, this liberty, this beautiful and terrible thing,” to express the importance of the fundamental idea that he will build upon throughout the poem (lines 1-2).

For the rest of the poem Hayden hinges off the attention grabbing statement by illustrating how freedom is both beautiful and
The special temper of the poem is linked with a realization that a determined and collective bid to unite the two worlds is a compelling imperative which we shall ignore at our own peril. Another poem “A Summer Night” also attempts at combining the personal world of “Islands” and “gardens” and the political one of “violence”, “tyrannies of love” and “gathering multitude outside”.

Auden had by then learnt to face reality with courage and make definite choices which reflected his partisanship or what can be better called a sense of responsibility towards those who are suffering and are being victimised.
