William Wordsworths The Solitary Reaper Not only did Wordsworth do a superior job portraying an experience when he wrote The Solitary Reaper but he also invites the readers broaden their own experiences by opening their eyes to parts of life that they might not have noticed or did notice but could not describe His poem describing a unique experience he encountered one day while he was walking by a field clearly demonstrates the effective use of poetic devices Rhyme tone personification imagery and setting are all present to effectively communicate not only his story but also his message to the reader Throughout the poem one line easily flows to the next as a result of Wordsworths outstanding use of rhyme The rhyme formation used in the first and last stanzas is identical Similarly the second and third stanzas have corresponding schemes The poems beginning was inviting and quickly grasped the readers attention Then the rhyme used throughout the body of the poem seemingly pulled the reader through the rest of it until the skillful ending Wordsworths tone throughout the entire poem is one filled with extreme joy and fulfillment but one of mystery He paints a delightful picture of this memorable event from the moment he spots the woman working in the field Then her beautiful voice grabs his full attention as he stops to admire her singing Personification is used to describe her voice when he writes No nightingale did ever chant 9 and A voice so thrilling neer was heard In springtime from the cuckoo-bird 13-14 His tone then changes in the third stanza as he wonders what she is singing of If it is of unhappy things or whether her singing originates from some loss or pain Wordsworth is obviously overtaken by this womans singing which is easily empathized the fitting of his emotions into this poem The reader can easily interpret that the poem was about a real experience
