For example, in the third stanza it said“Thy beauty of cool feet, and slenderest knees”, H.D. demonstrate how how Greece sees her ,but not affected by Helen’s predicament , and will only see her with hatred and loathe her. As you can see both poems describe two different perspectives, since one is a man and the other is a woman. Moreover, their two poems explain her physical appearance, except Edgar Poe describes how attractive she was, and H.D. describes how her guiltiness is shown in her appearance.
William Wordsworth is one poet who focuses about death in many of his poems. Wordsworth treats death in his poems differently to evoke different feelings among his audiences and Wordsworth uses death to call into question his own feelings on the subject. First, Wordsworth addresses the finality of death differently in his poems. In
Wilfred Owen “Beauty” The poem is about beauty. Every person has its own perception of the beauty. Some love animals like horses and some find beauty in nature. Usually, all people find beauty in something elegant and beautiful. The poem ends with the image of the dead officer who wanted to return home and live calm life in the garden with roses.
Lord Byron wrote “She Walks In Beauty” to express his sentiment toward a woman by complimenting her beauty both physically and the beauty she have within. Within the poem he expresses himself to show that the woman is the most beautiful woman he have ever seen by comparing her to nature. He gets the inspiration for the nature competitions because of the Romantic Movement of that time. His admiration and appreciation for her beauty gave the poem a lively and exciting feeling. However, his love for her does not stop in her physical beauty alone but also her confidence and personality.
In this quote, Owen seems to be paying homage to all the romantic poets (like Keats and Shelly) whose poetry has been able to soothe him and has even often resounded deeply with his situation or with the problems he was going through. At the time, when Owen
Combining this with the further themes of fallen woman and woman as poet this poem reflects feminist dilemmas. As discussed previously this poem illustrates Victorian sexual concepts but the climax of the poem indicates much more: She sleeps up in the attic there Alone, poor maid. 'Tis but a stair Betwixt us. (ll.42-44) The wife 's decision to sleep in the attic indicates the physical
Death can be blissful, life can be painful, immobility causes insanity, and pain causes peace. During an extremely unfortunate turn of events, Walt Whitman's poetry sadly began to reflect this brutally truthful principle. His health was on a quick decline and he was practically dead. It was later in he's life when he found peace with himself and his pain therefore pain and peace were recurring themes in his somewhat gloomy later poetry. His gloomy and dismal style was displayed with a seamless and beautiful incorporation of elaborate diction and a dramatic tone into his already lovely poetry.
Images of London in Contrast: Analysing Wordsworth and Wilde The poems “Lines Written upon Westminster Bridge” by William Wordsworth and “Impression du Matin” by Oscar Wilde both describe each author’s view of the city of London. Wordsworth, who wrote during the Romantic period, is known for his appreciation of nature, while Wilde, who wrote during the Victorian period, is not as concerned with nature. Wilde is concerned with finding a balance between ideas that creates a more realistic image, while Wordsworth is not concerned with being realistic. The poems explain not only what the authors see, but also the impact the sight has on them and their overall impression of the city. This impression is based on the distinctions noticed by each.
William Wordsworth once declared “poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings” (151) in his “Preface to Lyrical Ballads.” When reading this assertion, one might think Wordsworth believes that poetry is made simply by writing down one’s feelings, void of any processing or reflection. However, Wordsworth recognizes that writing poetry requires a combination of intellectual processes, namely recollection and contemplation, by adding that “[poetry] takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility: the emotion is contemplated till […] successful composition […] begins” (151). In this paper, I borrow and expand on Wordsworth’s ideas about poetry to examine how William Maxwell’s short story “Love” results from Maxwell’s secondary
