    • POEM: I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud by William Wordsworth (1/9/2008 12:48:00 PM)

      I think thats an interesting comment Neima, and I can see where you're coming from, especially with the Narcissus references. I wouldn't say I disagree with you, but what do you make of some of the (to me) seemingly contradictory portions, like, 'A poet could not but be gay, / In such a jocund company: ' This is a section where he is enjoying the flowers and the scene while he is witnessing it. He doesn't just gaze- He gazes, and yet in the same sentence he does indeed say that he didn't fully appreciate it at the time. And all this in the same stanza. I was just wondering what you make of this stuff, since your comment was really thoughful, and I'm a pretty huge Wordsworth fan.

    • POEM: A Poison Tree by William Blake (1/9/2008 12:32:00 PM)

      Truly, Kevin Harrison, you've posted a terrible comment. Blake's work doesn't make sense? That comment doesn't make sense since the poem is quite clear, and even if it were meaningless to contemporary life, (all of you reading this realize that this is not the case, as William Blake is the man, and he was way ahead of his time) how can you fault the guy for being not only relevant, but totally radical in his own time? I think he's a genius and a revolutionary. Great poem too.
