Transcript of THE WORLD IS TOOOOOO MUCH WITH US!!!



The world is too much with us; late and soon,

Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:

Little we see in Nature that is ours;

We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!

This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;

The winds that will be howling at all hours,

And are upgathered now like sleeping flowers;

For this, for everything, we are out of tune;

It moves us not.—Great God! I'd rather be

A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;

So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,

Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;

Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;

Or hear old Triton blow his wreathéd horn.

Humans
Romanticism is usually characterized by imagination, nature, feelings, a distrust of civilization, nostalgia for the past, and appreciation for the beauty of the natural landscape. Wordsworth incorporates all of these characteristics into the poem.
Theme
Through his poem, wordsworth is saying that people need to appreciate nature like they used to. Now technology is taking priority over nature and it is ruining life.
Syntax
A lot of the lines are written in inversion (line 2, line 3, line 9, line 10, and line 11)
Shift
the shift is in the middle of line 9 at the end of the octave
it is emphasized by the dash between "not" and "Great"
before the shift, words like "us", "we", and "our" are used
after the shift, the speaker uses "I" and "me"
the problem in the octave is that people are filling the world and there is no room for nature
the solution in the sestet is to bring nature back at all costs
