A constant theme of Cowper's poetry was human isolation and helplesssness against nature.
In my view, a powem such as 'Yardly Oak' should be read quietly to allow the thoughts of the poet to speak for themselves.
My reading of William Cowper would hardly drive anyone into estacies of emotion !
I'd be as flat as wallpaper. ;)
