    Comparison of Nature Both Shelley, in 'Ode to the West Wind,' and Wordsworth, in 'Intimations of Immortality,' are very similar in their use of nature to describe the life and death of the human spirit. As they both describe nature these two poets use the comparison of how the Earth and all its life is the same as our own human life. I feel that Shelley uses the seasons as a way of portraying the human life during reincarnation. Wordsworth seems to concentrate more on the stages that a person go...
