Hi I really need help with the following questions.

1. In"My heart leaps up when I behold"Wordsworth says " the child is the father of the man" This is often interpreted to mean that our childhood experiences influence the adults that we become. Explain how this theme is apparent in "Lines composed a few miles above Tintern Abbey" Give examples from the text to support the answer.

2. Compare John Keats' "ode to a nightingale" to Emily Dickinson's "there is a slant of light" What do the poems have in common? how do they address the theme in similar ways? How do they address the theme in different ways?

Thank you so much for the help.

    No one will take write your assignments for you. You should go back into your text and other study materials, write what YOU THINK for each, and then someone here might be able to check your work for you.

    The place to start is to read the poems. Then think about these questions and see if there are similarities, etc.
