The aforementioned string of images that the Keats uses to criticize the imaginative process in the Epistle applies to I Stood on Tip Toe in the same manner that it applied in Sleep and Poetry. Here, Keats seems to offer up a disturbed version of his earlier technique.
Here, it is a string of disjointed images that seem to disrupt the creative process. He refers to these imaginings as "hellish" images that destroy the process of poetic realization.
Not only are these images inconsistent with one another, but they are also inconsistent with the ideal process of poetic creation that follows as a point of contrast: This criticism in the Epistle is inconsistent with both poems. He states that "imagination brought beyond its proper bound, yet still confin'd" generates a kind of "purgatory" in which the romantic possibilities of poetry are trapped between the inaccurate and often volatile figurings of the imagination and the unanimated, stagnant descriptions of the real world.
Unable to establish a balance, or any kind of unity, this limbo yields an Enchanted Castle that is "half-animated"—a still, frozen image corrupted by the "giant, pulsing underground" of the imagination. A similar image can be found in the last stanza: Keats likens "silent rocks" and "flat brown sand" to the "the core of an eternal fierce destruction.
These elements are neither balanced nor ideal and hardly create an atmosphere conducive to realizing nature and life in its true romantic state.

By Destiny Moulder. Such view seems as if the central dome of heaven has cracked and the earth is covered with heaps of broken glass.
Hence, the artist says: The countryside beautification has transformed into exploitation and operation with new technology and more industry. His extensive knowledge of trees, flowers and grasses forming the idyllic value has turned into the apocalyptic vision of agro chemicals and pesticide applications. Such reverse is logically justified on account of economic globalization and corrupt civilization. On the contrary, humans should keep in mind: New Hampshire constitutes another kind of poetic taste of big business, more commercialism and more materialism.
West Running Brook has, to some extent, ecocritical application in its delineation. There is more anthropocentricism than biocentric stance. Such living is a contrast to life in nature. He also notices wildflowers, brooks, trees and birds.
Such sweet, delicate things stand out against the sombre background of the physical world. As an observer, Frost describes the pure and tender images of nature for the possible purpose of creating harmonious relationship between nature and human culture: From day to day, America got more industrialism and consumerism.
Such resulted in disintegration and declination of agricultural way of life and countryside beauties. Capitalism and commercialism pave the way to encourage industrialism.
Such capitalist structures posit ecocide. Hence, by injecting ecocritical vision into his poetic output otherwise relates to revisit and revalue the significance of nature in the context of present era.
The problems of extremely increasing changes in global climate and the plight of animal communities require a profound insight and revaluation of Frost in order to gain environment consciousness. Kent and William Park. Williams, Oscar and Edwin Honig. Secondary Sources Borlik,Todd A.
