Shelves: poetry , 4-star-reads , romantic-movement Who wants a revolution? Well Wordsworth and Coleridge certainly did. Their writing existed in the intellectual aftermath of the French revolution; thus, they tried to radicalise it and revolutionise it.
With Lyrical ballads they, undoubtedly, changed the destiny of English literature. Granted, thats a huge sweeping statement to make but, nevertheless, it is a true one. No longer would poetry be the lofty language of the elites, a means for the bourgeoisie to demonstrate their intellect; it would Who wants a revolution?
No longer would poetry be the lofty language of the elites, a means for the bourgeoisie to demonstrate their intellect; it would now be the language of the common man: it would exist in a natural form, simple, basic even, so that that everybody could understand it and appreciate its beauty. Whist the two were not the first to start writing in such a way, Blake came much earlier on with his Songs of Innocence and Experience, though they were the first to actually set down what they were trying to do, to explain it and provide a critique of what they were actually doing rather than just doing it.
This work is brave and experimental and it would help to create a new class of poetry. Poetry, above all things, should have a purpose; it should aim to present human emotion and experience in a clear and considerate way.
Compare this work to something written by Shakespeare, Pope or Milton and you will clearly see the difference in complexity. The style of this poetry is far more accessible and easier to understand, but, that being said, would you have agreed if you were a common man in the early nineteenth century? Possibly not. The educated would have appreciated what was happening here, but the uneducated would not have even been able to read it never mind afford a copy.
Wordsworth wrote most of the poems in here, though Coleridge contributed, arguably, one of the best poems written in the English language: The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. A melancholy bird? In Nature there is nothing melancholy. I like it so much because it is so deeply personal.
They write from the deplorable ball room, and spend their lives in theatres; yet, they attempt to write poetry about nature.
Coleridge was one of the Lakers, a poet who wrote in the Lake District from a voice of first-hand experience, so he was a little bit of an expert. I could fell the sarcasm and annoyance oozing out of his words, but also a sense of literary superiority. Coleridge clearly felt like his voice was prominent in these matters: My Friend, and thou, our Sister! You could call these words arrogance, but I think his ego is deserved. Well, he and the other early romantic poets; they make up the flock.
I love the symbolism here; he suggests because he was one with nature, he could express it perfectly in his poems. After reading many the lines between each become blurred as he often repeats similar themes and ideas. Sometimes he takes an old poem, and uses it to make a new one by expanding upon the ideas and depicting it in a more artful way. He roams through the landscape seemingly unaffected by the troubles of the world and mortality.
But that is a lie. Under the surface, as Wordsworth reveals, is a constant preoccupation with death. It will never escape us not matter how far we may wonder.
The two exist together and as such behind the surface of the wonderers is knowledge of their eventual demise or the demise of their loved ones: Old man Travelling That peck along the road, regard him not. He travels on, and in his face, his step, His gait, is one expression; every limb, His look and bending figure, all bespeak A man who does not move with pain, but moves With thought—He is insensibly subdued To settled quiet: he is one by whom All effort seems forgotten, one to whom Long patience has such mild composure given, That patience now doth seem a thing, of which He hath no need.
He is by nature led To peace so perfect, that the young behold With envy, what the old man hardly feels. I am going many miles to take A last leave of my son, a mariner, Who from a sea-fight has been brought to Falmouth, And there is dying in an hospital. These two men changed poetry forever with this; they helped to make popular a model that would eventually be adapted by later generations. This poetry is a true pleasure to read.
