Our group would talk about "Art",
"Human", and "Nature" in poetry. The first poem we talked about is "Anecdote
of the Jar" This poem put emphasis on the relation between "art" and "nature".
At the first, the author seems to explain that art is more important than
the nature. Later, the author point out the jar (art) is lifeless, and
the nature made live and was worth of art. We could compare this to the
"Ozymandias". In the second poem, it seemed that art give nature the value.
The desert became colorful because of Ozymandias's status. It is the same
to "Anecdote of the Jar" that the author point out it is human beings who
make the art be lively, and it is nature gives human life. The first two
poems are very similar in one point of view that nature is more important
than art. The next poem is "Ode on Grecian Urn". The urn was compared to
human beings. Although there are some decorations (art) on it, and we admired
it at first. No matter how beautiful the art is, it is still made by human.
This is why the speaker had represented that human and art have certain
degrees of distance. The main reason is art can't experience what we have
experienced, it can't understand the world of human. The last poem is "Musee
des Beaux Art". It talked about human suffering. There are three pictures
and they all present human life. In the poem, the speaker, picture, and
poem itself are related extremely. Art and human are equal to each other
in this poem. To make a conclusion, we think that "Art", "Human" and "Nature"
can make a right triangle. They are all valuable and important. If we admire
them in different angles, we will find that the consequence of human, art,
and nature in poetry is always changed.
