Composed Upon Westminster Bridge

This are some questions we answer about the poem we read Composed Upon Westminster Bridge. My group was: Mara and Tomas.

1. Would you guess that the speaker is native or foreign to the city? why?

We think he is foreign to the city because it`s the first time he passes by at dawn and he really enjoys it, he thinks is very beautiful.

2. Do you think that the speaker is aware that he is using exaggeration in calling the vision the most beautiful that earth has to offer?

Yes, we think he sees London as a very beautiful country and he uses hyper bowl for everyone to understand and share his thoughts about the view from the bridge.

3. How do the poem`s images juxtapose the city with the countryside? Where can you tell these two regions apart?

In the beginning the city and country are apart “earth has nothing to show more fair” but at the end they juxtapose “open unto the fields, and to the sky”.

Defend this statement:

The city`s freshness is more beautiful than the freshness of the countryside because it runs counter to expectation. The element of surprise accounts for the speaker`s enthusiasm.

The statement is right because you know what the atmosphere of the country is like but you don`t see everyday a countryside view in a city so it surprises you that accounts to the writer`s exaggeration.

This are Bauti, Joaco, Nico and Gonzalo`s answers.
