Analisis Puisi The World is too Much with Us





The World is too Much with Us


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!
The 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 wreathed horn.
                                                                            1806.


Analisis Puisi The World is too Much with Us karangan William Wordsworth. Berikut ini saya jabarkan tentang puisi sonnet yang memiliki 14 baris di dalamnya. Sebenarnya ini tugas saya dalam mata kuliah Introduction to Literature, tapi mungkin saja bermanfaat jadi saya share aja. Kalo ada yang kurang atau salah dapat berkomentar di bawah..


THE world is too much with us; late and soon,
The world refers to the natural world, and too much with us mean that it’s just too much life in the city.
Dunia yang dimaksudkan disini adalah keadaan alam, dan terlalu banyak dengan kita itu berarti kita terlalu lama hidup dalam kesibukan kota.

Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
Getting and spending mean that the people are destroying themselves with consumerism.
Mendapatkan dan menghabiskan berarti orang-orang sedng menghancurkan kehidupan mereka sendiri dengan pola hidup konsumtif.

Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We only see nature in small way
Kit hanya memperhatikan kehidupan alam dengan sangat sedikit

We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
We have lost the ability to feel (power) because we’ve given our hearts away.
Kita telah kehilangan kemampun kita untuk merasakan karena kita telah mengabaikan hati kita.

The Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
Personification: describing the way ocean-tides are affected by the moon.
Personifikasi: mendiskripsikan bagaimana lautan tertarik oleh sang bulan.

The winds that will be howling at all hours,
Winds likely to the nature.

And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
The word “like” is showing that it’s a simile. It means that the winds at rest and will howl when they wake up.
Kata “seperti” menunjukkan bahwa ini termasuk simile. Ini berarti bahwa angin yang istirahat akan menderu ketika bangun.

For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It might be mean that we’re out of sense with nature.
Mungkin itu berarti bahwa kita telah kehilangan kepedulian terhadap alam.

It moves us not.--Great God! I'd rather be
Human and nature are alienated from one another.

A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn; 
The writer says that he’d rather be pagan who raised believing in some antiquated primitive religion.
Penulis berkata bahwa ia lebih senang menjadi seorang penyembah berhala yang menyembah hal-hal kuno.

So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
The writer just stand in open grassland overlooking the nature.
Penulis sedang berdiri di padang rumput memandang alam.

Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
If the writer were a pagan he would see something that wouldn’t make him feel so sad.
Jika penulis seorang penyembah berhala, ia mungkin dapat melihat sesuatu yang tidak akan membuatnya begitu merasa sedih.

Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Proteus is a sea god in Greek mythology who had the ability to change many things.
Proteus adalahdewa laut dalam mitos Yunani yang mempunyai kemampuan mengubah banyak hal.

Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.
Triton is son of the sea god who had ability to excite or calm the waves by his horn.

Summary

The writer want the reader can appreciate the beautiful events like the moon shining over the sea and the blowing winds.
The writer rather be a pagan so that when he gazed on the ocean he will feel happier. And he think that become  pagan he will see the mythological gods like Porteus and Triton.
