The World Is Too Much With Us

The World Is Too Much With Us

Dňa 23. novembra v rámci literárneho kolokvia študentka 2. ročníka Ivana Kasalová predstavila svojim o rok mladším kolegom tvorbu britského romantického básnika Williama Wordswortha, konkrétne jeho sonet The World Is Too Much With Us. Keďže Wordsworth v tomto sonete poukazuje na negatívny dopad industrializácie na prírodu, po dôkladnej analýze sonetu nasledoval mini kreatívny workshop, v ktorom prváci dostali za úlohu zilustrovať túto báseň. A tu je výsledok ich umeleckej realizácie:

The world is too much with us; late and soon,

Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;—

Little we see in Nature that is ours;

We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!

This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;

The winds that will be howling at all hours,

And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;

For this, for everything, we are out of tune;

It moves us not. Great God! I’d rather be

A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;

So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,

Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;

Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;

Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn.
