  • William Wordsworth Michael And Tintern Abbey - 983 words
    William Wordsworth Michael And Tintern Abbey William Wordsworth's concluding poems of Lyrical Ballads (1798 and 1800) both share distinct views on the concept of Memories and Tradition. They both show the effect that nature has on man, and how one can find solace in the beauty of nature and pass it on to others. "Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey" has been regarded as one of Wordsworth's most prestigious poems. This poem was written on July 13th 1798, five years after Wordsworths first visit to Tintern Abbey. In the poem the author is recalling the overwhelming feeling of joy he experienced when he had first seen the abbey, and is transferring this feeling to his relationship wi ...

Down from the ceiling, by the chimney's edge, That in our ancient uncouth country style With huge and black projection over-browed Large space beneath, as duly as the light Of day grew dim the Housewife hung a lamp; An aged utensil, which had performed Service beyond all others of its kind. This descriptions compares the house to the world, showing its great vastness and how the light that is hung will bring light to the greatest depths of space. Appropriately the house was named "The Evening Star." The lamp in the house can be seen as man in nature. Without light nothing can be seen in the house, and without man the true beauty of nature cannot b ...

  • Divinity In Its A Beauteous Evening Calm And Free - 648 words
    Divinity In It's A Beauteous Evening Calm And Free Divinity in "It Is a Beauteous Evening, Calm and Free" During the late 17th and early 18th centuries the style of poetry changed drastically. Poets shifted their focus away from the audience and concentrated on the internal self. This created the expressive, lyric poetry we now recognize as typical of Romanticism. William Wordsworth is one of the most famous of the Romantics, as well as author of "It Is a Beauteous Evening, Calm and Free." Written in 1807 after a trip to France to visit his daughter, "It Is a Beauteous Evening, Calm and Free" focuses on Wordsworth's view of nature and childhood as essentially divine. Written as a Petrarchan ...

  • Imagery - 2,396 words
    IMAGERY The term imagery has various applications. Generally, imagery includes all kinds of sense perception (not just visual pictures). In a more limited application, the term describes visible objects only. But the term is perhaps most commonly used to describe figurative language, which is as a theme in literature. An example is animal imagery in Othello When Iago tortures Othello with animal images of his wife's supposed infidelity, "were they as prime as goats, as hot as monkeys" (3.3.403), his description so overcomes the Moor that later, in greeting Lodovico, he suddenly blurts out, "Goats and monkeys!" (4.1.256). SIMILE A direct, expressed comparison between two things essentially un ...

    Nalysis Of Composed Upon Westminster Bridge NALYSIS OF COMPOSED UPON WESTMINSTER BRIDGE, SEPTEMBER 3, 1802 In Composed Upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1802, by William Wordsworth, the speaker, again, his sister, reflects upon a beautiful view of the city by using such literary devices as rhyme, personification, hyperbole, and imagery. The speaker manages to create a vision in the reader's mind that is so vivid, that one can picture oneself on that very bridge. This poem is another example of Wordsworth's desire to create poetry using nature as inspiration. Earth is personified in the first line as a being that has possessions that he can show off, for example, its cities. The city is t ...

It was limited to Europe and America although different compatriots donated to its birth and popularity.
