Poetry is Undergoing Changes

Poetry has evolved from the Romantic era to the present. Poems, like authors, have adapted to the revolution. Poems by Blake, Coleridge, and Wordsworth vary somewhat, if not entirely, from those of Lord Byron and Shelley. To that end, this paper would try to describe a poem by Lord Byron as well as illustrate the distinctions between poems written by Lord Byron, Shelley, and Keats.
Lord Byron's poem Beauty, "She Walks," describes a nameless woman who is very pretty. He emphasizes elegance by using parallels. He uses contrasts like the cloudless dark nights full of stars and the day that he describes as gaudy. He illustrates that beauty and innocence make the woman he describes an ideal woman. The style used by these writes is different. Shelley, for instance, uses highly figurative language while on the other hand Blake's works were comprised of simple word and sentences although it had aspects of metaphors and symbolic language. Unlike Lord Byron, who prefers a social satire style and a natural and conversational style, Coleridge preferred a ballad forms in his works. The focus of many Romantic poets revolved around, revolution industrialization, concerns of the rights of women and children and generally the focus on individual experiences. These themes, though not entirely, have been changed by time. Writers like Lord Byron can write about random topics such as beauty in his poem ‘She walks in Beauty'.In conclusion, every poet has their own complexities which make their poetry complex. It is therefore very difficult to come up with one critique that sums up the works of the writers. The poets deal with many weighty topics and concepts which aside from making an overall analysis difficult allows for poetry to be read and analyzed now and years to come. The analysis brings out new views and new meanings that enrich the field of poetry analysis.Work CitedGreenblatt, Stephen, et. al.
