Nathanael’s literary style and theme of his stories were passionate romanticism and mainly dark romanticism. The spectacular author had many amazing works and so many popular books. One of his greatest works was The Scarlet Letter (1850) and Twice-Told Tales (1837). Edgar Allan Poe once said, "The style of Hawthorne is purity itself. His tone is singularly effective—wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes... We look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth".
One of the main influences on Owens’s poetry was his meeting with Siegfried Sassoon, though Owen soon fashioned his own style and approach to the war. The characteristics of Owens’s poetry are the use of the rhyming of two words, alliteration, and assonance. Alfred Tennyson was born on 5th August 1809 in Somersby, Lincolnshire and died on the 6th October 1892 to later be buried in the poet’s corner in Westminster Abby. Tennyson was often regarded as the chief representative of the Victorian age in poetry, succeeding Wordsworth as poet laureate in 1850.

Verne became one of the most devoted admirers of the American author, and wrote his first science fiction tale, 'An voyage in Balloon' (1851), under the influence of Poe. Later Verne would write a sequel to Poe's unfinished novel, Narrative of a Gordon Pym, entitled The Sphinz of the Ice-Fileds (1897).

Verne had met in 1862 Pierre Jules Hetzel, a publisher and writer for children, who started to publish Verne's 'Extraordinary Journeys'. This cooperation lasted until the end of Verne's career.
Shrouded Sorrow Robert Frost is known for writing about the beauty and majesty of New England. Although on first read this seems to be just another one of these simple poems, he actually uses breaks, cadence, figurative language, and a flexible persona in his poem “Never Again Would Birds’ Song be the Same” to deal with death and grief in his life. Without multiple stanza common to many poems, Frost had to rely on end-stops and enjambments to create meaning through breaks just as we must rely on them to interpret his meaning. More than half the poem uses enjambment; however, this brings emphasis to the end-stopped lines. Whenever Frost end-stops a line, the next seems to to take on a tone of mild opposition.

Produce a close analysis saying how typical the section of ‘The love Song of Alfred J Prufrock’ that you have chosen is of Eliot’s style and concern T. S. Eliot is known as one of the most influential poets of the 20th century as his poems pushed the boundaries of traditional poetry. I believe the first forty lines of ‘The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock’ reflect many typical themes which occur in Eliot poetry in this collection. The main theme of ‘The Love Song of J Arthur Prufrock’ is of a man looking at his life and believing that it is all over and that he has lived out his best days. He immediately draws the reader into the mindset of the persona or Prufrock by having Prufrock interact with his audience by using second person as well as first person narrative. Eliot uses the simile of ‘a patient etherised upon a table’ which could be said to symbolise the fact that Prufrock is as numb as the unconscious patient as he too has put his life on hold however unlike the patient it is because Prufrock is too scared to make any change to scared rather than because he is knocked unconscious by a drug.

William Blake considered that without contraries there is no progression and, indeed, some of his works are built on oppositions, like The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Ideas of Good and Evil or, of course, the volume Songs of Innocence and of Experience. Two of Blake’s famous collections of poetry are Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience. The two collections go together-that is, many of the poems in Songs of Innocence have corresponding poems in Songs of Experience. Many of the poems are religious and a prime example of contrasting two poems is 'The Lamb' from Songs of Innocence and 'The Tyger' from Songs of Experience.
