Wordsworth, through the auspices of his own work, was consistent in his portrayal of what constituted ‘good poetry.’ Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Alfred Tennyson's 'The Lotos-Eaters'
[ send me this paper ]
A 10 page analysis of the poem in relationship to the Romantic period and Tennyson's personal relationship to his art. Although Tennyson dealt with romantic views of war and heroes, in contrast to other writers of his day, he felt that poetry should reflect a certain formality borrowed from Greek tragedy literature. In 'The Lotos-Eaters,' Tennyson was true to his heart. As such, the poem reflects the ideals of the imperialism and his own personal goals--war begets heroes, and heroes in death go to a glorious afterlife. However, although he borrowed from biblical and Greek-tragedy sources, his characters and nature are also contemporary, and transcend all the realms together. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Enlightenment, Romance And Reason
[ send me this paper ]
William Wordsworth in his Preface to Lyrical Ballads approached reason from the perspective of both poetry and Romanticism. The philosopher Immanual Kant approached reason from the perspective of Enlightenment. This 7 page paper argues that the relationship between Enlightenment principles of reason and the romantic emphasis on emotion seems, on the surface, to be diametrically opposed. However, from the Kantian viewpoint it is merely a step in the process to maturity of humankind. Bibliography lists 12 sources.
