Wordsworth’s And Pound’s Girls

Auther : Mahammad Y. Shaheen

 

The comparison between the two poems is intended to show how the poets stand in sharp opposition to each other. It is obvious that the two poems have a common ground of theme; yet the similar object is presented differently in each peom. Whordsworth tells us a story about Lucy, who lived and died in oblivion except for her poet, who still derives inspiration from her memory. The poem is subjective and romantic.

Pound’s poem, on the other hand, consists of a series of images which unify to objectify the purpose of the speaker, the speaker here is far from being the poet. The girl addresses herself. Her awareness of herself comes through what is known as the process of metamorphosis, which penetrates into the psyche of the girl. Consequently we see Pound’s girl from the inside. Pound’s poem has the objectivity of imagism in the same way Wordsworth’s has the subjectivity of traditional sentiment.
