Romanticism : Synthesis

The poems we chose are mainly about appreciating nature. For example, in the poem The Lake Isle of Innisfree and There Is Another Sky both authors wish to escape their current life and live in a place surrounded by nature. Next, in the poem A Beauteous Evening, Calm & Free, The Tyger and The Lamb are all showing their admiration towards God’s Creation which is nature. To continue, the poem A Bird Came Down The Walks is describing a bird that the persona saw as she admires it from a far.

Another main idea we found based on the poems is overcoming sadness and loneliness. For instance, this can be seen in the poem The Lake Isle of Innisfree, the author mentions about how he wants to escape from reality by finding his own peace in his imaginary island. As for Dickinson’s poem , There Is Another Sky the author states that she misses her brother and prays him to return to her. She refers to a metaphorical garden of which her brother is also aware of. Next, in the poem I wandered Lonely As A Cloud (Daffodils) the author talks about daffodils are like little yellow people who keep the speaker company when he is feeling lonely. The title of the poem also informs us about the loneliness of the poet which he faces after the death of his brother.

The last main idea is expressing feelings by relating them with nature. For example, the poem A Red Red Rose, the author is expressing his feelings by comparing his lover to a red rose. Next, the poem Alone expressing the feeling of loneliness to nature. Lastly, the poem Love and Friendship, the author expresses her thoughts and feelings about love and friendship by comparing them to wild rose-briar and the holly tree.
