To create the full meaning of the selected poems, adding that the study reached a number of the following conclusions, the most prominent of which is that the stylistic rhetorical analysis of the eight selected poems showed that there is a distinction between poetic language and non-poetic language, and that the words chosen by poets have a significant impact on how meaning develops, Both Hopkins and Blake used different types of coherent and stylistic means to present their exact meanings and ideas for their poems.
