The Clod and the Pebble

In the next post I am going to expose the romantic characteristics in the poem “The Clod and the Pebble”

“Joys in another´s loss of ease” It emphazises on emotions rather than in reason, whether the emotion is positive or negative, Romanticsm exposes these feelings.

“And builds a Heaven in Hell´s despair” It shows natural phenoma, contrasting the happy and sad parts which love has.

“Clod and Pebble” shows the use of symbolism. From one hand, “clod” means the soft and light side of love, and “pebble” symbolizes the heavy and strong side of it.
