The structure of the poem is also purposely chosen to set the theme. In each stanza, the first two sentences show present time, while the last two are the Lawrence’s flashbacks into his childhood. This clear contrast within each stanza is backed by the rhyme scheme of AABB. Supporting the tone, language and structure, literary devices are also used effectively to further highlight the theme of nostalgia. In line three, the poet uses an onomatopoeia, “in the boom of the tingling”.
The crotchet accompaniment remains throughout bar 4 as the remainder of the theme is played. From bar 5 to 6 the motif repeats itself, each time a tone higher. It is accompanied by a rising semiquaver scalic-like motif that goes up a tone, then a semitone. This accompaniment acts as a response to the motif, which, in turn, forms a dialogue. The rising accompaniment therefore transforms the motif, making it sound more complex.
He lost much of his innocence, which he can never retrieve. The experience of seeing his friends die so horrifically and being forced to survive them has undoubtedly changed him forever. There is no going back to who you were before once something that traumatic occurs, especially when you are forced to relive it like him. Romanticism is strong throughout The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and the Mariner is an apt example of a romantic character.

The first time I was introduced to Romanticism in this course, I thought that I would be reading a lot of love poems and novels. But soon enough I realized how wrong I was and understood the real concept of Romanticism. It is a movement of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries that reacted against the rules in literature, philosophy, art, religion, and politics at that period. Romantic writers meant to break out of what was usual and write about the things that no one dared to talk or write about. It also gave voice to the voiceless like children, women, and the low-class.
William Shakespeare's King Lear is depressing and has no mercy, but it also encounters many more aspects which are quite important for everyone to know, such as: trails of deaths, battles, love, hatred, treacheries and most importantly nature and culture. Shakespeare created a play where the world was cruel and there was only plotting and tragedy with no shining light at the end of the tunnel. Shakespeare makes King Lear, a natural figure to show the hypocrisy. The connection between King Lear and Cordelia is an analogy for the relationship of nature and culture. It seems that King Lear believed in culture instead of nature, he could not understand his youngest, nicest and the most loving daughter Cordelia only because she had no words to
Once Albert Schweitzer has said, “The tragedy of life is what dies inside a man while he lives.” This conveys that life is a precious gift, but during lifetimes, this gift has been wasted or abused, which turn into a tragedy.

There is a strong rhyme between the lines ‘bubbled and doubled’ ‘buds unbuttoned’ and ‘creases from their frills’. These lines created the image of flowers blossoming. At the end, he stated the season of the year, “It was the season after blossoming, Before the forming of the fruit” bring out that it is not May but rising June. In the third stanza, the author described the change of the sky as the day fades and the night rises. The line “in the sky the dust dissected tangential light” showed the change in time and the mood of the poem.
In The Aleph, Jorge Luis Borges tells the story of Carlos Argentino Daneri, a mediocre poet on a quest to create a masterpiece- a poem that describes in detail all the places in the world. Upon receiving the news that his house will be demolished, Daneri is enraged. He confesses to the narrator that he needs the house to finish his poem, as the ceiling contains an Aleph, i.e. a point in space that contains all other points and he has been using it as an aide for his writing. The story ends with the narrator experiencing for himself the Aleph but refusing to acknowledge its existence to Daneri.
Wordsworth, who let himself be guided "Wherever Nature led," acted upon by psychological forces following his adolescent move to London, and exercised his imagination to practice a form of poetic astral projection. It’s difficult to describe the awesome wonder of astral travel with material words, but William Wordsworth said it beautifully when he wrote: “I wandered lonely as a cloud that floats on high o’er vales and hills...” in his poem Daffodils . Dr. Adnan Ibrahim, doctor and a Palestinian Islamic scholar, in one of his lectures about out-of-body experience, he said that " a number of poets and writers who go through this experience e experience, including William Wordsworth and Coleridge and wrote about it " . Also in his lecture, He said that the one who go through this experience can see thing deeply and differently from other, For example this person can see beyond the thing, a hall city with all street unlike other ordinary people. This attached with the definition of poet " a common man speaking to common people, with more sensibility, he can feel and see more than the other "
Although Coleridge reflects on nature as being that “one Life within us and abroad “in most of his other poem, but coming In “Dejection: An Ode” we see more of the dialects between the imagination’s role in creating perception and nature guiding the soul. In the opening stanzas of “Dejection” the flipside to the romantic celebration of nature –the romantic emphasize on subjective experience, individual consciousness, and imagination. If our experience derives from ourselves, then nature can do nothing on its own. Beginning with the fifth stanza, Coleridge suggests that there is a power –personified joy that allows us to reconnect with nature and for it to renew us and that comes both from within and from without: “the spirit and the power, / Which wedding Nature to us gives in dower / A new Earth and new Heaven” (67–69). That reconnection with nature will renew the world for us.
