I'll just come out and say it... I'm not much of a fan of T.S. Elliot and Wallace Stevens. I'm also not that obsessed with the Romantics and "Daffodils." But at least "Daffodils" is a little more straight forward than "The Wasteland" and "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird." The titles sound really interesting, but I'm going insane because I still have no idea what either of them mean.... I just wish Elliot could be a little less vague. I guess I'm looking too hard for a meaning that isn't there.... If anyone wants to share some insight please go ahead. I'd love to understand these poems a little more.
