Shahwan, Saed Jamil
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v10 n1 p66-68 Feb 2019
Wordsworth stands as a supreme poet in nature. He is a devotee and worshiper of nature. His affection for nature is more evident than any other poet who writes about nature. Wordsworth has an original and full-fledged philosophy about nature. In his poetics works, there are three notable aspects of nature that are identifiable. One of the facts is that Wordsworth believes that nature is a living person. He believes that nature has a divine spirit and it is available in all objects of nature. This divine spirit is known as mystical pantheism and illustrated in The Prelude. Wordsworth also believes that there is joy in the company of nature. Nature has healing attributes and heals hearts struck by sorrow. Wordsworth also emphasizes the influence of nature on morality. He depicts nature as a great teacher because of the great morals taught to man. He believed that there is consciousness between man and nature. In his writings, there is an inclination towards nature. There is no writing that does not have significance to nature. His writings warns the readers about the neglect of nature, but the people do not take her writings seriously. The writings foresee a harsh environment that makes the life of man difficult. Many years after his writing, people face numerous environmental challenges that make life very difficult.
