Rainbow , The Analysis



Author: Poetry of William Wordsworth Type: Poetry Views: 3591





My heart leaps up when I behold

A Rainbow in the sky:



So was it when my life began;

So is it now I am a man;

So be it when I shall grow old,

Or let me die!



The Child is father of the man;

And I could wish my days to be



Bound each to each by natural piety.

.: :.

it is poem stating the cycle which repeats. the child looks and enjoys rainbow and becomes a parent and then may die. but the rainbow continues in the same pattern. the man after death takes another birth and starts enjoying with rainbow. this child will become father for next generation child. thus cycle repeats like a rainbow

its something that goes with William Butler Yeats\'s \"THE LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREE\"

main themes of this poem are the past leading to the present; the loss of innocence; growing up; the importance of nature in our lives.

Ah the title of this poem is incorrect, the title should be \"My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold\" not the rainbow what ever that is...

worthsword as a nature loving poet describes that we adults are too busy in our works that we don\'t have anymore time to have a glance at nature let alone see a rainbow.
but he remember as a child how joyous he felt when see used to see a rainbow/
so children who are pure and untouched by the world can only connect to god. so that is why child is the father of a man.

child is the father of the man because childreen plaY IN NATURE AND ARE CLOSER TO NATURE UNLIKE MATURE PPL WHO DESTROY NATURE AND ARE FAR FROM IT. CHILDREN ARE CLOSER TO NATURE THERFORE THEY ARE CLOSER TO GOD AND MATURE PPL OR MAN ARE AWAY FROM GOD AS THEY ARE AWAY FROM NATURE

for me, the child is the father of the man because this is where the man came. the child is the one who built his self, the one who created the man.
which means that his childhood tells who he is in the present. the past tell us who are we, that\'s why the past is the father of the present.

The Child is Father of the Man
Wordsworth really loved children. He like the innocense of a child. He want to make himself innocent like a child, and he want to make child as a model in his life.Children are the real sons of God. They have God\'s spirit. When they became grown it might disappear from them. We must learn many things from a child util we die. If We are not learning from a child or not becoming a child we are not human beings.God\'s spirit is not with us.

This is the poem in which he express that child first gets the experience of the nature. child is bond with nature. He also express that the rainbow which he sees in his child is same in his adulthood also and will be same after his death also.

The poem is all about nature and its relationship with man. On the one hand, we have the child which represents innocence. The child is at one with nature. On the other hand there is the man who is disrespectful of nature and therefore morally speaking, "The child is the father of the man".

This poem tells us about the natural beauty.
The poet is moved by the natural beauty. The nature existed before he born, is still there and will remain in the future too. The poet tells that if the beauty of nature doesn't remain then let him die. There is no fun to live in this world without the beauty of nature.
The 7TH line "The child is the father of the man" is the most important line in the whole poem. It describes the lot of complicated ideas in these few words. A child loves nature, plays with it unlike the mature people who destroy the nature. Mature people should learn from the children to love nature. So, child is the father of the man.
In the last two lines, he expresses to be bound with natural beauty. He wishes to remain with the nature for his whole life.

This poem was written by william wordsworth while he was growing old.While growing old he noticed something that was very common, he noticed that their are somethings which have remained the same form when he was a child till he was an adult i.e.the rainbow,the sun and the sky.

'The Rainbow' is a poem that Wordsworth told
reflected on his life as he grew old
to the colors of rainbow the life is compared
in different segments the life is also shared
the poet is elated to see a rainbow in the sky
he remembers the day when he was a young guy
the purity of childhood carries great elan
therefore he says chid is father of the man
similar to childhood he wants his life to be
full of joy, playfullness and pious purity
there is a wish that he wants to become true
he wants to live his life full of virtue
the rainbow does not change or gets pale
the poet wants his heart never to go stale
the world of children is real, not a show
this is the message that gives us 'The Rainbow'

it's about how children, the basis of true innocence, are much more godly than adults. Adults become materilistic and tend not to notice natural beauties such as rainbows. the seven colors of the rainbow make an allusion to the Bible, which uses the number seven mulitple times. This leads the reader to believe that Wordsworth is trying to comminucate tha nature, a holy creation, should be respected by all, but it seems in the day in age, only children can really appreciate it, due to their innocence.

From what I have learned, the line, "the child is the father of the man" relates to the fact that sometimes the child is wiser than the father, and more innocent. The author wishes to retain his childhood sense of wonder, intertwined with the innocence. Simply put, he always wants to feel joy, even as an old man, when he sees the rainbow.

This is entirely incorrect. This poem is about natures influence over man's life and the reverance and gratitude we all owe it for its daily blessings.

.: Analysis :.

william wordsorth is writing about how child hod is significant to a persons adult life,
"so it was when my life began / so is it now i am a man / so be it when i grow old"
also he is saying that child hood makes men what they are
"the child is the father of the man"
