  1. Form and meaning of The Daffodils by W.Wordsworth and Miracle on St.David’s Day by G.Clarke. Pre and Post C20th Poetry Comparison.

    Wordsworth became caught up in the moment of his real life experience and wanted to savour and treasure it, so he wrote and feelings down on paper. In Wordsworth's time you were either poor and hard working, or wealthy with not much to do. Wordsworth had not much to do, so he opened his imagination to write poetry to fill his spare time. With having spare time and no need to be anywhere at a certain time, he explored nature and learnt more about the happenings of nature, which as a poet he respected, and he recorded his discoveries and emotions on paper.

  • Compare two poems of William Wordsworth.

    "I like I wandered lonely as a cloud as it passes over sensations 'Outdid the sparkling waves in glee' I find the poem very bright and happy ' And then my heart with pleasure fills'. In The Boat - Stealing Episode I like the fact it's a very narrative and informative poem. It's autobiographical, which I enjoy as I can put myself in Wordsworth shoes. I also compared the two poems as they have a big contrast. They're both about the forces of nature but with different effects. But I believe it's also about life and the positive and negative effects we receive. The Boat - Stealing Episode has a negative effect on Wordsworth whereas I wandered lonely as a cloud had a positive effect on him. For me it's like life and it's up's and down's, it's high's and low's, right and wrong and what's fair and just."

  • Compare how the two poets handle their subject matter in the poems To Daffodils by Robert Herrick and The Daffodils by William Wordsworth.

    "Conclusion I think Robert Herrick's poem was very successful as he shows that time passes quite quickly and describes the preciousness of life. I also think that William Wordsworth poem was also a great success. I think that the poem is open-minded and a happy one to read. My favourite out of the two studied though is Robert Herrick's as you can relate to it and know the feelings that he is expressing throughout the poem."
