I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud Analysis



Author: Poetry of William Wordsworth Type: Poetry Views: 24574

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the milky way,

They stretched in never-ending line

Along the margin of a bay:

Ten thousand saw I at a glance,

Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.The waves beside them danced, but they

Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;

A poet could not be but gay,

In such a jocund company!

I gazed-and gazed-but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought:For oft, when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude;

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the daffodils.

The poem is also known as \'The Daffodils\'.It expresses the power and influence Nature over men.Being the high priest of Nature Wordsworth shows how the memory of beautiful golden daffodils-\" beside the lake, beneath the trees\" can save him from loneliness and make his mind dance with the daffodils.In a word-\"A thing of beauty is joy for ever\"

The phrase “ten thousand I saw at a glance” uses hyperbole where he exaggerates the number of daffodils.
can some one tell me the effect of the hyperbole?

Wordsworth is a romantic and characteristics of romanticism are obvious in this poem from the beginning . he writes about man in relation to nature. the poet expresses his feeling towards a beautiful view of daffodils and how these flowers had a great effect on him . he uses some technical devices in order to convey what he felt . there is contrast between the cloud of being free and lonely and daffodils .

Not a bad poem, i think it clearly portrays his fascination with the pastoral, however its not really a true representative of nature - yet brings to mind the differences with urban and rural cultures

i do always like this kind of poems because i feel that God create us as human beings to appreciate these things so while we are looking to this beautiful nature we have to say Thankx God about this beautiful scene which you make to beautifize our life.

great poem by William Wordsworth. takes time for someone to recognise some great work. even an idiot can't deny a great work like this.

A trully superb poem being the amalgamation of two artists- Wlliam and Mary Wordsworth.

Wordsworth was one of the greatest poets of the romantic era. It's a positive poem that inspires us to see the beauty of things that we may usually take advantage of; just like 'composed upon Westminster Bridge', in which the poet compares the beauty of London to the beauty of nature.
Thank you to the intelligent people that were actually able to spell thoroughout their posts and make a positive contribution. To the people that comment negatively on this poem - if you're going to slag it off, try and do it intelligently. You could maybe start by learning to spell?

I actually think this poem is pretty good, this is only one of many that i actually understand. Shakespeares are so difficult to understand compared to this. And its rather cute. I have to write a speech on it, and i find it rather easy.

William words worths I wandered Lonely as a cloud is a lyric poem focusing on the poets response to the beauty of nature. The poem's famous opening line emphasizes the individual by presenting a person who is alone and lonely, cloudlike, he floats on high o'er vales and hills. Sadness is generated by the term "lonely," and the cloud is personified by the speaker to be given human emotions as to feeling lonely. The speaker has great imagination and observation through his poem, and greatly details the stanzas; for example, Wordsworth uses personification when he calls the golden daffodils a crowd. The speaker humanizes the daffodils when he says they are dancing: Tossing their heads in sprightly dance (line 12). This is personification because it describes the daffodils doing human actions. The poem describes nature. He describing the daffodils as the stars in the Milky Way, which establish a feeling of unity between the daffodils and the humans.
