Compare And Contrast The Way Wordsworth And Hughes Write About Nature

818 words - 3 pages


Hughes wrote the poem “Thistles” which is about how these plants are.
He speaks about them as if they were a sign of violence, and violent
creatures. He views them as a symbol of vengeance, pain and threat.
The thistles are spiky and can hurt anyone. They are dull, immortal,
green, rough, and produce a big amount of chaos, written in????????

Wordsworth on the other hand, wrote about “Daffodils” which are small
golden flowers. They look vivid, colourful and peaceful. These flowers
produce a state of calm, sweet and memorable moments. Written in
romantic era of literature, in 1804

Each poet creates a different mood in their poems. Hughes’ use of
imagery creates a bad and nasty mood. It even creates horrible and
mean moods, and sometimes a scary mood. The use of imagery has a
reason to it as well; the purpose of it is to make people get a
vision, a small scene, and a picture in their minds of what thistles
look like, and what they do to be so painful. Hughes’ way of using
imagery is good as it explains whatever he sees; it shows that he can
use other things or words to explain his views. An example of this
imagery is the line that says “everyone manages a plume of blood” this
makes people think that everyone has a river of blood on them, so it
brings a horrible scene into people’s minds. Wordsworth doesn’t use
much imagery but whenever he does, he uses it in such a way that
people want to continue to read the poem a few more times. His was of
using imagery makes people get a nice and pleasant view of the
daffodils, like for example in the line “tossing their heads in
sprightly dance” this shows that the daffodils are vivid, and alive.
The gives a living sensation to the daffodils and makes a reader
visualize the daffodils as having a live form.

The form of Hughes’ poem contributes to its content and theme in many
ways. The theme of the poem is that the thistles represent a battle.
More and more plants appear, and the other plants get other older.
They get chopped, it becomes a big fight. So the theme is about a
battle that takes place which some thistles moaned and some are
planted. The theme is mainly about violence and about how the thistles
are, what they look like. The “Daffodils” poem has a different theme.
The theme is about happiness, joy and good things in life when
daffodils are around, how colourful...
