A STYLISTIC STUDY OF SYNONYMY IN W. WORDSWORTH’S POETRY

Fareed -Hindawi, Musaab Abdulzahra Alkhazaali,

Abstract


This study deals with the role of synonyms in propounding the main themes in Wordsworth's poetry, who is considered one of the best representatives of the romantic poets. Thus, his style can be a portrait for this movement.

Wordsworth's poetry generally reacts against the thought and literary practices of the preceding century. His  major subject, like most Romanticists, matter is the beauty and satisfactions derive from nature. Romanticists believe in naturalism and realism in the place of morality. They believe that man should not be conformed or stereotyped to one norm of code rather derive pleasure from what he derives from nature (see Abrams, 1953; Moulin, 2005: 1-2). His style, thus, is worth researching because it is a picture of his age.
