'The Theme of Perfection and Imperfect in the Poem ‘God’s Grandeur’\r'

'In the poesy ‘God’s wideness’ by Gerard Manley Hopkins, the theme of im idol and god is highlighted. The majority of the poem is a contrast between im undefiledion and perfection. The premier stanza discusses the contrast between the two themes; perfection and imperfection, magical spell in the second stanza; God’s perfection is mainly spoken about. Perfection The mere championship of this poem suggests the poem is about something great and powerful. The ledger ‘grandeur’ is defined as splendour and impressiveness. This tidings is frequently used when referring to appearance or 10dency and is a synonym and implication of perfection.Therefore, the poem’s title is suiting and signifies God’s perfection and His grace. In the poem, the earth and nature is too seen as a symbol of perfection, as it is made and controlled by God. This is evident in line one, which quotes â€Å"The world is aerated with the grandeur of God. â € This shows that nature is seen as pure and it is renew at this point to be slowly changed by imperfections such(prenominal) as universe. In line six-spot it is stated that ‘all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with dirty; And wears man’s smudge and man’s smell. However nature is relentless and proves itself to always be perfect, no matter how many attempts man tries to exterminate it, it just always finds a way kick back what harm man does to it. Lines nine and ten state ‘…nature is never spent; in that location lives the dearest freshness deep down things. ’ These phrases clear prove that the earth will not sustain its purity payable to man. The Holy Ghost’s presence with vitality and life and al lucent things are what keep the earth together, with warm breath and bright wings. ImperfectionIn the poem ‘God’s Grandeur’ the theme of imperfection directly deals with the attitude and the bodily f unction of man. God has blessed man with a tremendous earth, a natural home with abundant resources to assistance man to survive, but unfortunately man has plough blind and ungrateful. For centuries man has destroyed the earth for selfish gain. This canister be shown by the phrase ‘the daub is now bare’, which holds the image of a desolate, teetotal earth whose resources were used for the wrong purposes. The phrase ‘nor can foot feel’ hich contains an example of alliteration and also imagery, shows how man has separated himself both physically and spiritually from nature and the earth which God has blessed them with and wherefore they are also separating themselves from God. The poet’s tone of gratitude and amazement throughout most of the poem all the way shows his letdown of man’s treatment to the earth due to ignorance selfishness and ingratitude which contribute to man’s imperfection. make up the phrase ‘why do men therefore now not reck his rod? ’ show that the poet does not understand why man does not give God the thanks and respect that He is due.Unfortunately man does not realize that by trying to armed service themselves , they are actually hurting themselves , since they are destroying something that is guardianship them alive. Most of the book of Matthew chapter five , especially Matthew 5:48 which states ‘you therefore must be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect’ clearly shows that due to man’s sin , such as selfishness, hatred, ignorance and in relation to the poem the employ of God’s blessings , which contribute to man’s imperfection, can resultantly separate us from God.\r\n'
