Poetical Works of William Cullen Bryant

by William Cullen Bryant

I wrote a critical response to the American romantic poet William Cullen Bryant’s poem, "To a Waterfowl." Although there is a creative use of allegory which depicts natural objects in the narrative as being equal in meaning to themes and subjects that are completely outside the narrative, the interplay of words, ideas, and sentiments meld and culminate in this poem as a cohesive and sustainable fountain of imagery that led me to imagine, very romantically, that, no matter how circumstances present themselves in life, every life is directed by the providence of God. http://simstem.blogspot.com/
