Comparing To Autumn and To a Skylark The two poems we have studied this expression are 'To Autumn' and ' To a Skylark'. They use all of the tools a writer can use like similes, metaphors, personification and juxtaposition to create I believe, some of the best pieces of poetry I have read to this date. Both of them are packed full of information and in both, the poets are in awe of what they are describing. This is a really nice touch as it causes you to feel closer to the poem and for that reason you can relate to the feelings that the poets feel as they write such poems. They also use large quantities of imagery and to good effect to describe their subject matter and that consequently makes nature look more uplifted, greater than we understand. Both poems are very compelling and filled with description of the joys of character. In both of these poems that the key subject matter is character and in the two poems the poets romanticise nature to make it seem higher and greater than we could ever know. In both the poets give a small twist for their own subject matter. Keats does so by creating autumn seem a more comfortable season, not the season that you would normally associate with rain along with falling leaves, rather he paints a completely different image by revealing the growing fruits of Autumn, the ripening fruits along with the warmth which Autumn fills you with. This can be what Shelley does in вЂњTo that a SkylarkвЂќ as he gives the bird an almost religious quality "Blithe Spirit", rather than just describing the animal as he sees it. Rather than doing this, Shelley almost increases the Skylark above.
