Structural antitheses in Goldsmith's The deserted village

    Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)Researchpeer-review

    Abstract

    The article analyzes the poem "The Deserted Village" by Oliver Goldsmith. It explores the poem's theme, as the author suggests that Goldsmith presents a nostalgic idealization of rural England that is doomed by the destructive aspects of wealth. Particular attention is also given to the structure and antithetical sections, which the author argues creates a diverse poetic form and diction to create stylistic effects.
