Reverie of Poor Susan, The Analysis



Author: Poetry of William Wordsworth Type: Poetry Views: 773

Sponsored Links





At the corner of Wood Street, when daylight appears,

Hangs a Thrush that sings loud, it has sung for three years:

Poor Susan has passed by the spot, and has heard

In the silence of morning the song of the Bird.



Tis a note of enchantment; what ails her? She sees

A mountain ascending, a vision of trees;

Bright volumes of vapour through Lothbury glide,

And a river flows on through the vale of Cheapside.



Green pastures she views in the midst of the dale,

Down which she so often has tripped with her pail;

And a single small cottage, a nest like a dove's,

The one only dwelling on earth that she loves.



She looks, and her heart is in heaven: but they fade,

The mist and the river, the hill and the shade:

The stream will not flow, and the hill will not rise,

And the colours have all passed away from her eyes!

.: :.

The reverie of poor susan, as the title suggests, is nothing but fancy of susan.She used to live n the countryside but then she moved to London.When she hears a bird singing she starts thinking about her past in the countryside, in her cottage where she used to feel safe (nest).
No recollection in tranquillity takes place in this poem because, as we can see frome the beginning of the second stanza, "tis a note of enchantment" the whole poem is a note of enchantment, so it is fancy.
Secondly everything vanishes and nothing changes in susan (while in Daffodils, where the recollection in tranquillity takes place we can see a great transformation). Finally Susan isn't a poet and the recollection in tranquillity is a process of the poet only.

Is it just as simple as a countryside emigrant who has had her imagination awoken by the thrushes song and dreams of her home gone by? Or perhaps the veil of death falls upon her and she reminisces of those things she held most dear in happier times?

Susan is off to work early morning in dirty polluted London which she has done for the last three years. The song of the thrush causes her to daydream of where she grew up - a cottage in picturesque countryside where she was happy and she longs to be there. She\'s homesick. Then reality sets in and the daydream disappears and it\'s off to drudge again in the city.

Susan obviously has left the countryside, and has now returned. She gets all nostalgic, but then, she realizes that she\'s not as happy as she used to be.
Human Feelings in the simple walk of life. Every Poet is indebted to Wordsworth for showing that Poems can be written even on them.

it is obvious that susan has left the countryside and lives a boring life in the city.she misses her old life when she would revel in natures beauty.she may have run away from home. the poet implies that her father will forgive and forget and welcome her back.

My feeling is that she was dying & they were her last thoughts, before the cloud of death covers her eyes.
Dissmal maybe,but true.

i think because this is a romantic's pov on mideival Cheapside london that susan imagines and then when they "fade" Susan s sad because she is now faced with the ever-busy, modern day Cheapside which sadens her.

i think that this represents the romantic ideal of nature but what is odd is that it would seem susan is unhappy (line 5) maybe this was wordsworths attempt to point out that it is all under the importance of going to heaven or the ever after signified by lines 12 and in 16 it could be infered she has died.

Milton was so emotional and sensitive person.he was having deep feelings for his sister Susan.He used to remember those moments of his life which he spent with his sister so many times.he was deep indulged in this the thoughts of his sister while making the lyrics.
