  • Shelley's Feeling For Nature
    1,260 words
    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...
  • Trees

    Corbin Jordan 4th hour Nature Its 6: 30 in the morning. Its dark, cold and snowing. We pull into the woods and unload the truck. We walk over to the blind and sit down. We wait. Off to the right some birds chirp. Off to the left a squirrel jumps along the tree tops. Behind us we can hear some turkeys crashing into the ground. We can feel the wind coming in through the holes in the blind. The smell of fresh air makes me not want to leave the woods. I take it all in one bit at a time. The sun is j...
  • Strong Symbolic Relationship Between Loneliness And Nature
    1,311 words
    In the Romantic period of literature, nature was often associated with isolation in a positive way.

The relationship of nature and loneliness is displayed through three characters in the story: Victor Frankenstein, his creature, and Robert Walton. At the times when the chara...
  • Thoreau's Ideas Of Intuition
    1,267 words
    Elements of American Romanticism Henry David Thoreau pens his book Walden during a revolutionary period of time known as American Romanticism. The literary movement of American Romanticism began roughly between the years of 1830 and 1860. It is believed to be a chapter of time in which those who had been dissatisfied by the Age of Reason were revolting through works of literature. All elements of Romanticism are in sharp, abrupt contrast to those types of ideas such as empirical observation and ...
  • Faith In Ancient Gods Of Nature
    900 words
    In William Wordsworth's "The World is Too Much With Us", this poem heeds warning to his generation. This warning is that they are losing sight of what is actually important in this world: nature and God. To some people both of these are the same thing. ".. as if lacking appreciation for the natural gifts of God is not sin enough, we add to it the insult of pride for our rape of His land" (Wordsworth). With his words, Wordsworth makes this message perpetual and everlasting. William Wordsworth lov...
  • Insight And Intuition
    824 words
    More Than A Feeling By definition, intuition is the inherent ability to connect with one's inner self. It seems as if as time goes by, intuition is thought of less. This is likely due to the lack of education and understanding of this peculiar ability. Yet some people believe that everyone has intuition. Few people actually experience it. Many dismiss the fleeting hunches and gut-feelings as coincidence. Those who do believe in the intuitive powers of the mind think it comes in many different fo...
  • Nature Of Waves
    1,187 words
    Throughout my reading I have found that Crane uses many symbolic objects to depict true-life events. He uses symbols such as towers, animals, and waves. Crane leaves so much to the reader's imagination that the story can be considered magical and mysterious. The composition leaves many details up to the readers inference, however after further research a full picture to the events that transpired that cold January are uncovered". The Open Boat", is very rich in symbolism. Symbolism evokes or des...
  • Autumn In Its Own Way

    How does Keats feel about nature? If you read through Keats' work it is clear that he loves nature. As he is dying he feels like he is losing everything close to him, his girlfriend, his friends and nature. Nature has become his family and a large and significant part of his life; all Keats wants to do now is die without pain, "to cease upon the midnight with no pain". He has accepted his death and wants to spend the rest of his time with nature. Keats uses similes, metaphors and personification...

  • Close With Nature
    347 words
    Cold air permeated through my hair. The smell of fresh and minty pine scent complimented the beautiful vantage of the wilderness. With my boots wedged in the snow, a shiver took over my body. This is was a place of peacefulness and tranquility. Never before had I been so close with nature. Facing the north was the vast forest. To the left and right, only the crystal white snow was visible. While looking up, I caught a glimpse of the old ski lift, the solo apparatus which was my way to this great...
  • Wordsworth's Poem

If you bear in mind the disposition of some of the things in life that move us like human beauty, love or the beauty of nature you will understand that they have one thing in common. They do not last forever, as sad as it seems, Ladies and Gentleman. Yes they too ...
  • Top Of The Mountain
    948 words
    "Rocky Mountain High" Swish, swish, flap, swish, flap. The walls of my tent begin to shake vigorously. I roll over, rub my eyes, and try to figure out what in the hell is going on. Waking up from the long, cold nights sleep at 10,000 feet, my senses are not exactly what I would call "sharp as a tack". I unzip my sleeping bag and a rush of cold mountain air sends shivers down my spine. I scramble around the tent, frantically trying to find some warm clothes. As I hop out of the tent, I realize th...
  • Faith In Logic And Reason
    680 words
    I believe in the mystical idea of transcendentalism, but I do not consider myself a full transcendentalist because I also have faith in logic and reason. I feel that I have the characteristics of being a transcendentalist, such as being one with nature and being self-reliant. The only quality that I don t agree with is logic and reason because I view the world as a place of logic and reason. Without logic and reason, there would be no answers for us. To me, technology would be sub par in our nat...

  • Lively Sensations
    383 words
    And therefore, your men of imagination are generally given to sensual pleasure, because the objects of sense yield them a more delicate touch, and a livelier sensation, than they do others. But if they happen to live so long (which is hardly possible), in the decline of life they pay dearly for the youthful days of their vanity. Those rigid, stiff and unyielding fibres, have less warm sensations, because it requires a greater resistance. Those excel most in the labours of the understanding, or t...
