Discuss the works of two people who write on the theme of people and landscape
"In conclusion I believe that R S Thomas and Williams Wondswoth vreat a calm atomosphere when they talk about the landscape. They portray landscape in an excellent way.
Now I will take about the theme of people, that the same two poets creat in Tramp" and "The Solitary reaper.
Tramp is a poem by R S Thomas. It is about a tramp who s compared toa normal person. He first ....... At a door asking for ten" A tramp with his can, asking for tea" Later on he compares his ambition with someone else ambition by saying" He looks a this feet, I look a the sky" This .... That ausual person would look up in the sky and reach for the starts but a tramp would look for pennys on the floor. When R S Thomas says "Strong for a poor man" he means that he is physically strong and mentally strong. Physically, because he can survive on the streets and mentally because he is a brave to knock at someone's door. The next line isn that paragraph he says."
Compare and Contrast the depiction of the countryside and the language techniques used by John Keats and Gerald Manley Hopkins in To Autumn(TM) and Binsey Poplars(TM)
"It seems to me that the main difference in the two poems is that they were written for different reasons. Keats was nearing the end of his life when he wrote 'To Autumn' and, whilst it would appear that he is talking about the cycle of the seasons and the end of summer, the poem would appear to have a greater universal message in that he is also talking about the circle of life. In Hopkins' 'Binsey Poplars', the message is that nature, the earth and the landscape are all being destroyed only because people were, and are, failing to realise the full consequences of their actions. His view is that the landscape is so precious, yet so fragile, because even the slightest action by man can change it irreversibly. Both poets talk about death in nature, the loss of the autumn, the trees and, in Keats' case, his own life as it was drawing to a close. In my opinion both poets also want the same thing, that is: for the world to remain unchanged; for the landscape to stay as they believed it was intended to be and for the advance of industry to be halted."
Compare and Contrast 'To His Coy Mistress' by Andrew Marvell and 'Sonnet 116' by William Shakespeare.
"In conclusion there are a number of similarities and differences between the two poems although they were written sixty years apart by completely different poets. Despite this Marvell and Shakespeare proceed to use the same theme and express their view using effective imagery linked to the subject matter. An obvious difference would be that one poet writes to a close form were there are restrictions to the way the poem is written. However Marvell writes to an open form were there are no restrictions to the way the poet has to write."
