One response to “About Romantic Ramblings

  1. I think for me, the value of all poetry is in my being able to relate to it, either by my own personal experiences or by my ability to empathize with the poet. When I read of Wordsworth’s frustrations with the French Revolution after all his optimism, I see a real person expresssing true human emotions, emotions I, too, have felt when my beliefs in something have ended in disappointment. When I read Keats’s “Ode on Melancholy,” I, too, am forced to acknowledge that joy cannot be understood until one experiences pain and sorrow, and then take heart with the beauty and love around me. The Romantics were not afraid to personalize their poetry.
