Summary of William Wordsworth's-"to the Skylark"

Book Review   by:akso6o175     Original Author: Andy Kester Sawian
ª
 
Wordsworth addresses the skylark as an ethereal; an ethereal world created through the poetic imagination: extremely delicate or refined: ethereal beauty: heavenly or celestial: gone to his ethereal home: 
of or pertaining to the upper regions of space; minstrel;  a medieval poet and musician who sang or recited while accompanying himself on a stringed instrument, either as a member of a noble household or as an itinerant troubadour: a musician, singer, or poet: one of a troupe of comedians, usually white men made up as black performers, presenting songs, jokes, etc; pilgrim of the sky; a person who journeys, esp. a long distance, to some sacred place as an act of religious devotion: pilgrims to the Holy Land: a traveler or wanderer, esp. in a foreign place: an original settler in a region. 
             Wordsworth asks the skylark whether it  despises; To regard with contempt or scorn: To dislike intensely; loathe: To regard as unworthy of one's interest or concern: the earth where all the cares abound; to occur or exist in great quantities or numbers: to be rich or well supplied; or while her wings aspire; To have a great ambition or ultimate goal; desire strongly: aspired to stardom: To strive toward an end: aspiring to great knowledge: To soar; are her heart and eyes both with her nest upon the dewy ground; Moist with or as if with dew: dewy grass in early morning: Accompanied by dew: a dewy morning: Suggestive of the freshness or purity of dew, as in innocence or naiveté: never gave up the dewy outlook of youth. The nest which the skylark can drop into at her own will, those quivering; to shake with a slight but rapid motion; vibrate tremulously; tremble: the act or state of quivering; a tremble or tremor; wings composed that music still.
               As far as the eye can see, to the last point of vision beyond the mountain ranges, a bold and daring warbler; any of several small, chiefly Old World songbirds of the subfamily Sylviidae. Compare blackcap, reed warbler: Also called wood warbler. any of numerous small New World songbirds of the family Parulidae, many species of which are brightly colored. Compare yellow warbler: 
a person or thing that warbles; that loved that prompted; done, performed, delivered, etc., at once or without delay: a prompt reply: ready in action; quick to act as occasion demands: quick or alert: prompt to take offense: punctual; strain; Often, strains. a passage of melody, music, or songs as rendered or heard: the strains of the nightingale: Music . a section of a piece of music, more or less complete in itself: a passage or piece of poetry: the tone, style, or spirit of an utterance, writing, etc.: a humorous strain: a particular degree, height, or pitch attained: a strain of courageous enthusiasm.
             'Twixt; betwixt and between, neither the one nor the other; in a middle or unresolved position: between herself and her never failing bond, thrills no less than the bosom; of, pertaining to, or worn on or over the bosom: intimate or confidential; of the plain. yet the skylark might hve seemed so privileged to sing with an independent and a care free heart aout the joys of spring. Let alone the nightingale in her own shady wood, the skylark has her own privacy of glorious light. When she pours upon the world a flood of harmony; Music:  any simultaneous combination of tones: the simultaneous combination of tones, esp. when blended into chords pleasing to the ear; chordal structure, as distinguished from melody and rhythm: the science of the structure, relations, and practical combination of chords, with instinet more divine; the skylark is the wise type  who soars but never roams. She is true, loyal and faithful to the kindred; a person's relatives collectively; kinfolk; kin: a group of persons related to another; family, tribe, or race: relationship by birth or descent, or sometimes by marriage; kinship: natural relationship; affinity: kindred languages: having the same belief, attitude, or feeling: related by birth or descent; having kinship: kindred tribes: belonging to kin or relatives; points of Heaven and home.
