music was driven by emotion William Wordsworth Samuel Taylor Coleridge John Keats Lord Byron Percy Shelley William Blake "poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility" I WANDERED lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay: 10
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. SOAPSTone Potery Analysis
Who is the speaker?
What is the occasion?
Who is the audience?
What is the purpose?
What is the subject?
Describe the tone The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood, 20
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils. "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud"
- William Wordsworth, 1804 Review!
