Name Professor Course Date George Gordon Lord Byron “She walks in beauty” poem The love for women in the modern life tends to reduce with time which actually should not be the case as I learn after reading “she walks in beauty” by George Gordon Lord Byron. He was born from a family of fast decaying nobility implying that the family’s effort to sustain the requirements slowly went down. His father’s death made things even worse after leaving him and her mother in unbalanced financial position. The situation is what made him thought deeply for him to have self-assertion having had that they already had aristocratic relatives with them. Despite all He went through; He was thirst for information and had a good memory. He could actually participate well in school revolts that gave him “passion” to speak to other I laugh at tonight?”.when He says that “No God no demon of severe response” it then seems that He was thinking on death as He was asleep having in mind that death comes to every human being. He feels like having contrasting feelings between the heart and the mind. He later turned humorous as He found out that He laughed because He was alive. Work cited Wordsworth William.

The following article from Encyclopedia Britannica provides additional information about their political views and their poetry: The later Romantics: Shelley, Keats, Byron (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Lord Byron's long narrative poems Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Don Juan, and The Prisoner of Chillon helped to create a type of man called (later) a Byronic hero. The shorter poems often don't feature this type of hero, but they reveal much about his philosophy of life. He died in an effort to aid in the independence of Greece from the Ottoman Empire. Both Shelley and Keats died very young, so we don't know how their poetry might have changed if they had lived to be as old as Wordsworth was when he died. Shelley was quite critical of Wordsworth, as you will see if you read "To Wordsworth." The first line of the introduction in the textbook includes the phrase "radical in every aspect of his life." This idea is important to understanding Percy Shelley's life. It seems that he was bullied when he went away to school at age 10; as he grew older, he saw this as what was happening to human beings in general. He ". . . dedicated his life to a war against injustice and oppression" (748-49). John Keats has been compared to both Shakespeare and Milton, England's greatest poets. He came from a humble background, unlike Shelley. Keats' father was a stableman. He was rarely bullied, even though he was only about five feet tall. His education was in medicine, but he decided to become a poet. He knew Shelley, but he knew he had a tendency to be influenced by other poets, so he remained independent.
