An Analysis of Two Poems
Among all the articles and the poems that I have read in this semester, the most impressive ones are the poems from William Wordsworth as well as John Keats Therefore, I would like to choose two most representative poems from William Wordsworth’s Tintern Abbey as well as John Keats’s Ode on a Grecian Urn to analyze and compare.
For John Keats, he had written a quite memorable poet with a special title called Ode on a Grecian Urn. Most of the poets in John Keats’ time which was about the nineteenth century had written works about “Ode to something” like Ode to the Wind. However, no one had ever tried write a work at the aim of praising an urn. For John Keats, he had expressed that the nature of art is indeed complicated. The nature of art is complicated because there are paradoxes in the art itself because although it is beautiful, it does not serve enough purpose for its existence. But it does not stop the urn from serving its purpose of representing beauty of nature.
However, for William Wordsworth who had written the poetry Tintern Abbey, lines composed a few Miles above Tintern Abbey on Revisting the Banks of the Wye during a Tour, he had also expressed the ideas of his appreciation of beauty of the natural world. In order to do that, William Wordsworth had expanded the details in many ways such as explaining in details the physical nature of the objects outside. In addition, he was in awe for the view that he was revisiting near the river of the Tintern Abbey.
In fact, both William Wordsworth as well as John Keats had both expressed opinions on the appreciation of nature by describing different sceneries and different object. Both of them had chosen the topics that are not too relevant with the central ideas that they want to express. For example, in the Ode on a Grecian Urn, the readers would expect John Keats to start writing the novel with the detailed description of a Grecian Urn, such as how the patterns on the urn are shaped or how the color can represent the beauty of the urn. However, he did not use too many words to describe how the urn looks like exactly. On the contrary, he started the poem by talking about how the urn looks like an ”unravished bride of quietness”, which means that bride who is silent and who still has had the sexual experience. In the next line, he started to praise the urn as “a flowery tale” which is sweeter than his poems, to tell readers the amazing beauty of the urn.
Clearly, while John Keats tries to express his appreciation of the nature of the urn or the nature of an exquisite object, he did not state out his opinions with plain and simple words by directly telling readers how the material is on the urn. Instead, he used a vague metaphor by comparing the urn to a maid with zero sexual experience or an obedient daughter of the parents. These ideas do not frankly let the readers know how the urn was made. However, it does help in giving the readers the feelings that nature is beautiful but also mysterious at the same time. Thus, his work is more about the nature of art and the beauty of the objects in nature more than about the appreciation of an urn.
For William Wordsworth’s Tintern Abbey, he had made use of the similar writing style like that of John Keats. His title is Tintern Abbey so when readers have seen the title, they would immediately expect the work to be about the ceremony or the events that might happened inside of the Tintern Abbey. However, it is the opposite of what the readers would have expect because the piece of work is not at all relevant to the Abbey itself. The major content of the poem is about the view that the author William Wordsworth had seen near the River near the Tintern Abbey.
For example, in his poem, he had mentioned scenes about “the landscape with the quiet of the sky” and “these plots of cottage ground, these orchard tufts”. It is obvious that these scenes are what he got to see after he revisited the place five years later.
Similar to the poem from John Keats, William Wordsworth had written the poems with the title of Tintern Abbey which would mislead readers to assume the poem talks about the amazing sights in the abbey. However, it turned out that William Wordsworth simply wanted to express his awe of the nature with the description of the scene near the river.
In the work, he had mentioned how the floor of the cottage is beautiful and how amazing it is that people are able to see the grapes that not are ripe hanging from the trees. Besides, the grass has given out the vibe of lives due to its refreshing color green.
Although both of the poets John Keats and William Wordsworth had expressed their appreciation of the nature’s beauty and the mysterious part by describing things in the natural world, for example, William Wordsworth made use of green grasses and blue sky in the poem and John Keats talked about an urn, they still have difference in their themes of nature. In fact, I believe that William Wordsworth had talked about the breath taking views to show his respect to the nature because he believes nature to be divine. In the last two stanzas, he had written that “This pray I make, knowing that Nature never did betray the heart that loved her”. In this part, he had mourned the people who had passed away. However, he did not forget to mention the word Nature again. For him, he had firmly believed that the nature will not betray those who had passed away. From this firm belief, it is easy for readers to tell that William Wordsworth had written the poem Tintern Abbey at the aim of more than expressing his awe as well as appreciation of the nature. On the contrary, he wanted to tell the readers that he himself is also a dye in the wood worshipper of nature since he had always believed that the nature is not only beautiful and amazing but also divine like the God.
On the contrary, although John Keats had used a lot of symbols to express his appreciation of nature in the poem, he had expressed his views in a more logical and sensible ways by telling a history. For example, in the second stanza, John Keats moved on to telling the patterns and the pictures that he can see on both sides of that urn. Later on, he used a lot of words with beautiful language to depict that picture he could see on the urn. However, unlike William Wordsworth, his sole aim is to tell the readers that he believes the nature of art is quite complex. Although art like the urn does not serve too many purposes, or in anther words, it is not that useful, he thinks all the efforts are worth it as long as the object can represent the beauty of the nature. For example, in one of the stanzas, he had said that “fair attitude… when old age shall this generation waste, thou shalt remain”. In this part, apparently, John Keats had expressed that the nature of art will always be permanent since even though people from generations to generations had died, the urn will still stay intact and unharmed unlike people.
To conclude, in both William Wordsworth’s Tintern Abbey and John Keats’ Ode on a Grecian Urn, they had used the title of an object but their sole goal of the poems is not to describe how the objects look like or what happened to them. Instead, they have expressed their appreciation of the nature and their awe in how the nature was shaped. However, for William Wordsworth, he tends to appreciate the divine feature of nature and he is a firm worshipper of the Mother Nature but for John Keats, he simply believes that the urn will be permanent and the nature thus is permanent as well.
