From Auguries of Innocence William Blake

EARTH has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;
Ne’er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!

Composed Upon Westminster Bridge September, 1802 William Wordsworth
The speaker announces that he has discovered the most excellent scene on earth. You’d must be somebody with no profound sense, no desire for magnificence, to disregard the Westminster Bridge that morning without halting to wonder about the sights. London is wearing the morning’s excellence like a fine shirt or cape. London, you’re lookin’ great.

The time is early to the point that all is tranquil. The different points of interest noticeable from the extension, including St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London, remain before him in all their glory in the morning light. Luckily, there happens to be no “London haze” to cloud the view.

The speaker looks at the daylight on the structures to the light that sparkles on the wide open, and he appears to be astounded to feel more settled in the clamoring city than he has anyplace else. The River Thames moves gradually underneath him. In a burst of feeling, he pictures the city as joyfully snoozing before another bustling day.

Get out the magnifying lens, since we’re experiencing this sonnet line-by-line.

Line 1

Earth has not anything to demonstrate all the more reasonable:

While traverse the Westminster Bridge, the speaker puts forth a strong expression: he has discovered the most excellent scene on the planet. All you different craftsmen can cancel the hunt! Wordsworth has found the very heart of excellence, or “reasonableness.”

Obviously, however, he’s overstating. He truly implies something like, “At this specific minute, I can’t envision anyplace being more excellent than the place I’m standing.” It’s more an impression of his state of mind than of the outside world. He can’t contrast the scene from the scaffold and anything aside from his own particular recollections, however since that is whatever anybody can do we’ll give him a chance to keep running with this one.

The line closes with a colon, telling us that he will disclose to us what earth is “appearing” after the line break.

Line 2-3

Dull would he be of soul who could cruise by

A sight so touching in its superbness:

Rather than endeavoring to portray the scene, as we may expect at this point (rush up, a work is just 14 lines in length!), the speaker tries to express how wonderful it is from another edge too.

He legitimizes his choice to stop his mentor en route to take a gander at the view from the extension.

He says that any individual who didn’t stop, who just go by with a look, would be “dull…of soul.” The inverse of dull is sharp, so we’re envisioning that the speaker’s spirit must resemble one of those blades they promote on TV that can slice through coins.

The individual who could simply go by has been fatigued and exhausted by understanding to the point of bluntness. He’s likewise exhausting, which is another importance of “dull.”

The sight from the scaffold is “touching in its grandness,” an interesting expression that recommends both closeness and glory. “Touching” scenes are frequently little and cozy, similar to a child offering blooms to his wiped out grandma. “Superb” scenes are frequently extensive and open, similar to a snow-secured mountain or a ruler going into a honored position room. The view from Westminster Bridge consolidates both this components.

The speaker feels both awed by and near the scene.

He utilizes another colon: possibly now he’ll quit keeping us in anticipation and depict this astounding perspective.

Lines 4-5

This City now doth, similar to a piece of clothing, wear

The magnificence of the morning;

We realize what time it is: London “wears” the morning like a pleasant coat or some other bit of apparel (“article of clothing”).

These lines imply that perhaps the morning, not London itself, is in charge of the shocking nature of the view. As in, the article of clothing could be beautiful to the point that it doesn’t make a difference what the individual wearing it would seem that. Anybody could wear it, and you’d resemble, “That is one hell of an article of clothing, there.”

Also, “now” demonstrates that the magnificence relies upon the season of day. It’s a brief, transient magnificence. Possibly when the morning is finished, and London is compelled to change garments, so to speak, the speaker would think, “Goodness. Presently it’s simply London once more. Been there, seen that.” (There we run with our wariness once more.)

Lines 5-7

noiseless, exposed,

Boats, towers, vaults, theaters, and sanctuaries lie

Open unto the fields, and to the sky;

By and large terms, the speaker portrays a portion of the sights that are unmistakable from Westminster Bridge.

The words “noiseless” and “exposed” are situated in the sonnet to such an extent that they could portray either the morning or the sights. In view of the semi-colon before them, the sights are the more clear decision, however the equivocalness is imperative.

The setting is “noiseless” as a result of the early hour which, from Dorothy Wordsworth’s diary, we know was around 5 or 6am.

“Exposed” is a fascinating word that signifies “stripped” or “unadorned.” It appears differently in relation to the picture of the city wearing dress from line 4. Here, the boats and structures are bare.

From Westminster Bridge in 1802, you could have seen a ton of the features of London, including the “boats” of the River Thames; the “vault” of the acclaimed St. Paul’s Cathedral, composed by the modeler Christopher Wren; and the famous Tower of London.

One thing you couldn’t have seen in 1802, yet that you could see today, is the Big Ben clock – it wasn’t manufactured yet.

Notwithstanding being altogether packed together inside one city, the speaker gives an impression of extensive size by taking note of that the boats and structures are “open” to the fields of London and to the sky.

One source calls attention to that London had fields that were near the city in 1802 however that never again exist (source).

Line 8

All brilliant and sparkling in the smokeless air.

The speaker aggregates up the entire scene toward the finish of the lyric’s initially lump of eight lines, called an “octet.”

He concentrates on the early morning summer daylight, which makes the structures “brilliant and sparkling.” “sparkling” specifically proposes that the scene is not static yet rather always showing signs of change with the moving light.

Our most loved word in the ballad is “smokeless.” What a word. He implies that neither the trademark London Fog nor smoke from fireplaces darkens the splendid light.

In London, as in San Francisco, it is basic for haze to cover the city for the duration of the morning. The speaker is fortunate to get the city on a morning that is totally free of haze.
El orador anuncia que ha descubierto la escena más excelente en la tierra. Deberías ser alguien sin sentido profundo, sin deseo de magnificencia, de ignorar el puente de Westminster esa mañana sin detenerse a preguntarse por los lugares de interés. Londres lleva la excelencia de la mañana como una fina camisa o capa. Londres, te ves genial.

El tiempo es temprano al punto de que todo es tranquilo. Los diferentes puntos de interés que se aprecian en la extensión, como la Catedral de San Pablo y la Torre de Londres, permanecen ante él en toda su gloria a la luz de la mañana. Afortunadamente, no ocurre ninguna “niebla de Londres” para nublar la vista.

El orador mira la luz del día en las estructuras a la luz que brilla en el ancho abierto, y él aparece asombrado sentirse más establecido en la ciudad que clama que él tiene en cualquier otro lugar. El río Támesis se mueve gradualmente debajo de él. En un estallido de sensación, él representa a la ciudad como jubilosa snoozing antes de otro día bullicioso. (Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

Saque la lente de aumento, ya que estamos experimentando este soneto línea por línea.

Línea 1

La Tierra no tiene nada que demostrar más razonable:

Mientras atraviesa el Puente de Westminster, el orador emite una fuerte expresión: ha descubierto la escena más excelente del planeta. Todos los diferentes artesanos pueden cancelar la caza! Wordsworth ha encontrado el corazón mismo de la excelencia, o “razonabilidad”. (Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

Obviamente, sin embargo, está exagerando. Realmente implica algo así como: “En este minuto específico, no puedo imaginar que un lugar sea más excelente que el lugar en el que estoy.” Es más una impresión de su estado de ánimo que del mundo exterior. No puede contrastar la escena del andamio y nada aparte de sus propios recuerdos particulares, sin embargo, como eso es lo que cualquiera puede hacer, le daremos la oportunidad de seguir corriendo con éste. (Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

La línea se cierra con dos puntos, diciéndonos que él nos revelará qué tierra está “apareciendo” después del salto de línea. (Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

Línea 2-3

Dull sería de alma que podría cruzar por

Una vista tan conmovedora en su soberbia:

En lugar de tratar de retratar la escena, como es de esperar en este punto (correr, un trabajo es de sólo 14 líneas de longitud!), El orador trata de expresar lo maravilloso que es de otro borde también. (Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

Legitima su opción de detener a su mentor en el camino para echar un vistazo a la vista desde la extensión.

Dice que cualquier individuo que no se detuviera, que sólo pasara con una mirada, sería “aburrido … de alma”. El inverso del aburrido es agudo, por lo que estamos imaginando que el espíritu del orador debe parecerse a una de esas láminas que promueven en la televisión que pueden cortar a través de monedas. (Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

El individuo que podría pasar simplemente ha sido fatigado y agotado por la comprensión hasta el punto de brusquedad. También es agotador, lo cual es otra importancia de “aburrido”.

La vista desde el andamio es “tocar su grandeza”, una expresión interesante que recomienda tanto la cercanía como la gloria. “Tocar” escenas son a menudo poco y acogedor, similar a un niño que ofrece flores a su abuela destruida. Las escenas “magníficas” son a menudo extensas y abiertas, similares a una montaña asegurada nieve oa una regla que entra en una sala honrada de la posición. La vista desde el puente de Westminster consolida ambos componentes.

El orador se siente impresionado por y cerca de la escena.

Utiliza otro colon: posiblemente ahora dejará de mantenernos en anticipación y representará esta asombrosa perspectiva.

Líneas 4-5

Esta ciudad ahora doth, similar a una pieza de ropa, desgaste

La magnificencia de la mañana;

Nos damos cuenta de qué hora es: Londres “lleva” la mañana como una capa agradable o algún otro pedazo de ropa (“prenda de vestir”). (Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

Estas líneas implican que quizás la mañana, no Londres sí mismo, es responsable de la naturaleza chocante de la opinión. Al igual que en, el artículo de ropa podría ser hermoso hasta el punto de que no hace una diferencia lo que el individuo que lo lleva parece que. Cualquiera podría usarlo, y te pareces, “Eso es un infierno de un artículo de ropa, allí.” (Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

Además, “ahora” demuestra que la magnificencia depende de la estación del día. Es una magnificencia breve y transitorio. Es posible que cuando haya terminado la mañana, y Londres se vea obligado a cambiar de ropa, por así decirlo, el orador pensaría: «Bondad, ahora es simplemente Londres una vez más. (Allí corremos con nuestra cautela una vez más.) (Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

Líneas 5-7

silencioso, expuesto,

Barcos, torres, bóvedas, teatros y santuarios

Abiertos a los campos y al cielo;

En términos generales, el orador retrata una porción de las vistas que son inconfundibles del puente de Westminster.(Composed Upon Westminster Bridge)

Las palabras “silencioso” y “expuesto” están situadas en el soneto hasta el punto de poder representar la mañana o las vistas. En vista del punto y coma antes de ellos, las vistas son la decisión más clara, sin embargo la equívoca es imprescindible.
