Re: Annicita

I like your observation that conveyance of most meaning has been encapsulated in the least amount of words. Thank you v. much.

Re: Aba brother

Yes Presta sister, times may have changed but not perhaps the making of a poet. Sensitivity, command over language, vocabulary, to represent the scenes and the sense with the poet's intended purpose, which is to elevate and teach mankind, are all still the qualities for any poet to be great even today.

Re: Kabu

You have such a sweet way of thinking about things, the need for beauty and appropriate words that decorate them are like fine ornaments. They are to be treasured as precious jewels. Thanks ma'am.

Great people, souls, do indeed make a great difference for the thinking and their morals of the future generations. That is why they are great.

Re: FSI

Wordsworth's take the universal are quite universal. Thank you.

Aba brother

Your post is so nicely put and comprehensive regarding Wordsworth and his views of poetry. Indeed, truth, or a variation of it, seems necessary for poetry to fulfill its purpose. As for poets being more in touch with the universe, perhaps those were common thoughts at that time. Certainly for anyone to write, one must observe, and reflect, but after that occurs there are many reasons poetry could be considered successful. Reading reflections of truths within ourselves is perhaps one answer. Times may have changed; the making of poet, perhaps not. Great post, Aba bro!

times certainly do change but beautiful poetry lives forever even if not often read. It is sad to me that right now when we do need beauty  and the gift of words put together so superbly that even I can understand a situation, poetry is in great need of a revival.

A good reveiw Sir, times change and we must honour those who made a difference.

I like reading people's takes on the universe.
