To begin with, the speaker uses imagery to The poem maintains a specific structure that organizes six lines into each stanza and places major verbs in the beginning of each line, which allows the speaker to describe a different part of the juggler’s performance for each stanza and place emphasis on the actions of the juggler to underscore the amazement the speaker feels. The first stanza describes how gravity usually works, but introduces the juggler’s power to defy this gravity, while the second stanza describes how the juggler moves the balls around in order to show this superhuman power. The poem reaches its climax in the fourth stanza, ending the performance of the juggler, and the last stanza describes how even though the act is over, the juggler has left a sense of awe and inspiration into the speaker. This specific organization helps the speaker transition his feeling of the performance from the beginning to the end, successfully showing the juggler has left him in wonder. Furthermore, in the second stanza, Richard Wilbur places the verbs, “Learning,” “Grazing,” “Cling,” and “Swinging” in the beginning of each line, putting the emphasis on those words and pausing for a moment before going into the important verbs (9,10,11,12). This syntax helps the poet describe what makes the speaker so amazed by the juggler, the specific and graceful movement of the juggler as he throws the balls up and down the air.

Question 1: William Cullen Bryant’s “Thanatopsis” fits the definition of Romanticism as it expresses the ideas of individualism and nature. Bryant writes “And, lost each human trace, surrend’ring up / Thine individual being, shalt though go / To mix forever with the elements” (24-26). In this, the author writes about individualism by stating that whenever a death occurs, one returns to their true self emotionally and physically as well. This is because, as Bryant states, one will return to the Earth “To mix forever with the elements.” Romanticism is also depicted into this poem by using extensive diction to capture the full extent of nature’s beauty. Bryant states that, “The hills / Rock-ribb’d and ancient as the sun,‒the vales / Stretching

During the first stanza, the speaker addresses the balls; which in a way despise their own ability to ability to bounce, suggesting the juggler surmises. The author continues to reveal the true ability of the balls with symbolism and imagery in the last line of the first stanza, (“It takes a sky- blue juggler with five balls to shake our gravity up.”). Describing the juggler as “sky-blue” symbolizes the speaker's truths hidden within the art of juggling. The line also reveals what juggling evokes upon the audience; perhaps allowing them an escape from their own reality and enjoy the juggler’s entertainment.
The opening lines of the poem exhibit personification, saying, “[The ball is not] A light-hearted thing, resents its own resilience. / Falling is what it loves.” The use of personification humanizes the balls, providing them emotions, as it loves to fall because it is being active in the air, a contrast from being tediously set on the ground, for it “settles and is forgot.” Like the balls, the audience too loves to be active, rather than settle and ‘be forgot.’ The first feature of imagery in the poem is in line six, in which the speaker states, “It takes a sky-blue juggler with five red balls.” The physical description of the juggler provides insight into the juggler’s character: sky-blue is regarded as a pleasant color seen when the sun is out and the juggler’s talent brings joy to its audience. The tone of the stanza is seemingly disconsolate, meant to reflect the lives of the audience, with words such as: “less,” “resents,” “falling,” “settles,” and “forgot.” This is prior to when the juggler is introduced in the final line, as the juggler’s performance stimulates the audience, making them forget about their dull days outside of the performance.
