A:

The poem The Solitary Reaper draws inspiration from the Romantic Period in Literature. Some of the important themes expressed in the poem are:

  • The theme of imagination when the poet wonders what the solitary reaper is humming. 
  • The theme of commonplace sensitivity as the poet observes her and her actions.
  • Melancholy, as he wonders what is the meaning of the song being sung by the reaper.
