    It might be helpful if you tied in some common themes of Romanticism. You've got nature, which is the big one, but you could play in more. As for your format, it looks fine.

    Oh sweet man, I see what you mean. I could tie that theme in with the Solitary Reaper right? Thanks!

    You may also want to make your thesis a bit more specific. It's very vague in the current form. Add what all of this encompasses and whatnot.

    Errors in red (assuming you're in the US, commas and periods always go within quotations), my comments in blue. Also, don't be afraid to add more quotes to the poems (unless you were instructed not to). When you do, however, you need to add parenthetical citations denoting the line numbers.

    Your format is fine.
