I love this poem of his, & have a lot of info researched, but I just cannot think of a good thesis for my paper in regards to this poem. I love WW's interest in the picturesque & nature but I don't exactly know how to apply this to a thesis/paper I'm supposed to write. Can anyone help me with this?

I've been thinking about this question since yesterday, and although I agree with you that the images are well worth focusing on, the most important theme is that of decompostion and dysfunctionality.
This poem represents;
*the breakdown of a family
*the physical decomposition of their home
*and the eventual result of the destruction of their physical and psychological well-being
These ideas can be incorporated into your thesis.
