What is the effect of moore's choice of free verse and stanza structure in poetry"? the poem flows from beginning to end as if the speaker is trying to come to a conclusion. the poem feels disjointed, as every stanza creates a new, original thought. the poem reads like a typical poem with meter and rhythm while exploring a new topic. the poem's stanzas present well-developed thoughts, as paragraphs do in prose!
wordsworth tends to see nature as 'out there'; a presence which surrounds humans, and contributes to human life, but is different from humans. if you look at a typical wordsworth poem (there was a boy, ye knew him well ye rocks) - wordsworth talks about nature as something that needs to be learned about and understood, nature is different from us.
if you look at a byron poem (the isles of greece is a good one) - byron looks at nature mainly for what it already means to man. wordsworth will look at a landscape and see the mountains, trees, valleys, and rivers as almost spiritual presences - wordsworth wants to get to know nature.
byron will look at the same landscape and he will want to know who lives there, what are the villages? are there any farms or mines, is there some history?
wordsworth looks at nature for what it is; byron is forever asking what it means.
wordsworth thinks that humans are part of nature; byron thinks that nature is part of being human
