Philip Larkin and Dannie Abse have very different and contrasting attitudes to relationships. On the whole, Larkin presents the concepts of love and marriage as very superficial and meaningless, whereas Abse appears to be less such nihilistic and more open and positive about such topics. Throughout Wild Oats, Philip Larkin uses various literary techniques, such as imagery, structure and symbolism to convey certain aspects of love and the passing of time. Larkin's poetry often relates to the social and cultural views upon love and marriage in his time. In Wild Oats It explains that a person, over the course of time, comes to realise that his greatest desires of love, are unattainable, and second best things will have to suffice.
These views were formed in retaliation the the Enlightenment Era and defined the characteristics of Romanticism. Romantic artists and writers sought to portray nature differently than the reason-thinkers of the Enlightenment. Romantics were drawn to the mysterious and rebelliousness of nature. In John Constable’s Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows (Document B) he portrays the appeal of Romantic art. He depicts a medieval church and the power of nature and allows them to work together; to coincide.

AP English 9-23 “I wandered lonely as a cloud” by William Wordsworth has both literal and interpretive SOAPStone’s. The literal subject on the poem is nature (field of daffodils, clouds), but the connotation of the subject is that a person should not be miserable because they have minor problems, in the quote “I wandered lonely as a cloud” (line 1) the speaker is alone but in “a poet could not be but gay” (line 15) explains that the speaker may be “lonely” but he finds/notices the positive rather than the negative. The denotative occasion in “I wandered lonely as a cloud” is romantic because of the poems connection to nature (examples of a connection to nature is the use of words such as “clouds” “vales, hills” and “daffodils”), the connotative is similar to the denotative but it also includes the comparison between people to nature. The literal audience of the poem is the general romantic crowds (mainly in the romantic era), the profound audience are people the speaker wants to notice/appreciate natures positives and beauty, most lines of the poem use personification (in this case human traits to nature within a field of daffodils) in situations that would seem undesirable if used with human figures rather than natural figures such as “daffodils … fluttering and dancing in the breeze”(lines 4-6) which give a pleasant image to the reader. The literal purpose of the poem is to inspire the reader to be outside and enjoy nature, but the deeper purpose of the poem is to encourage the reader to be more optimistic/or look at the positive, when the speaker states that he is lonely he also mentions natures beauty and clarifies “a poet could not but be gay” because of his experience with nature.

Gatsby’s Fairy Dream In the early 19th century, at the end of the “Romantic Period”, an English poet named John Keats composed a poetic masterpiece called La Belle Dame sans Merci. The Romantic writers, along with Mr. Keats, created a political, social, and literary movement that explored how much love defined the human nature. La Belle Dame sans Merci, on the surface, may seem to be just another Romantic poem revolving around the tale of courtly love, but in truth, there is a deeper meaning and story associated to the love that the knight feels for his fair lady. The romantic encounter that the knight and the beautiful fairy have in the story abruptly ends in tragedy for the smitten, young man as he becomes so enraptured with the mythical,
Poetry and drama have a few key features that emphasize their per formative nature. One is the use of rhyme, rhythm, meter, alliteration, and other types of sound symbolism. For example, in Gwendolyn Brooks' "We real cool", the poet uses a strong rhyme scheme, a consistent meter, and an almost sing-song tone to demonstrate the lack of education of the narrator and his or her youthfulness. It also emphasizes the last line "We die soon.". Another is in "unity of action".
It is also a dialogue which many of Wordsworth’s poems are.
