During the Romanticism motion, many writers shared a deepened gratitude for nature. Unlike, through the Enlightenment, where most writers lived in the suburbs, many Romanticism writers retreated to the united states to get away from the city life. They wanted to benefit from the untamed nature provided by the countryside, not cultivated gardens. Romanticist writers thought of mother nature as being far more than just stones and trees and shrubs, but almost just like a living being that had been forgotten and overlooked by many people who had been possessed by materialism. One article writer in particular- William Wordsworth published pieces on mother nature and emphasized the beauty nature had to provide. He also angrily expressed his disgrace for materialism/industrialism. Wordsworth was a genuine nature enthusiast, more than the other Romantic poets, as seen in his works "Nutting" and "The World is AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF around. " The discord between the Modern LIFESTYLE and Dynamics is the most common theme within his poetry. Wordsworth's compassion and value for character is firmly portrayed in his part "Nutting. " He needed a transcendental approach when authoring characteristics and his thoughts on nature obviously shown through.
In the sonnet, "The World is Too Much around, " Wordsworth concentrates on how folks have given their hearts away to materialism (a sordid boon) and exactly how they show no appreciation for the wonder nature has to offer. It's as though people are so swept up in industrialization they've forgot about the natural realm of things. The actual fact that industrialization has come at the expense of humanity's connection with nature isn't acceptable for Wordsworth and he portrays his grief. If people would just stop and take a peek around and appreciate the small stuff-like nature, they might find that the globe has more to provide than just greed and electric power. He states that folks are out of tune with mother nature and are too associated with "getting and spending"- an attitude that comes with a fast rate, industrialized world. Wordsworth is so upset with this he'd rather quit his own religion and become a pagan. During Wordsworth time becoming a pagan would be looked at blasphemy, but he was inclined to risk it, just so he could be closer to aspect. He says that experiencing a look of Proteus, increasing from the ocean, or Triton blowing is conch shell would make him feel better and less hopeless. At least, this way he could be more in touch with character, like in ancient Greek Mythology, where their gods represented different facets of nature.
"Nutting" is another piece that Wordsworth published, that goes to show how much he really have appreciate nature and its own beauty. Its also flooding with stunning thoughts and transcended emphasis. It starts off with a man going out into the woods to gather hazelnuts. The Youngman is first stepping through a part of the woods that is "matted with fern mattresses and tangled thickets" almost like there's something being concealed. After forcing his way through, he involves a part of the woods that has been "unvisited" and untouched by humans. He is over come by the "virgin scene" and is also in awe from it. He explains the hazelnut tree, the blossoms below the tree, the murmur of the stream and exactly how happy and over come with joy he's to possess found this location. He also portrays a feeling of innocence when he says he previously "been blest with rapid pleasure beyond all anticipation. " Within the midst's of being so excited he gets to up, getting for a branch and ends up breaking it. It's almost like he was just so happy and enthusiastic he couldn't control himself and gave into temptation. Kind of like a little youngster that thinks they have to touch everything. After breaking the branch, the Youngman seems horrible and identifies it as a rape field and the innocence is no more there. He thinks he has "raped" this location of the woods because it was no long untouched and a "virgin. " He had also taken away the beauty from it by causing harm and damaging the hazel tree. He seems very guilty, like he needed something from that location of the woods permanently changing it. When going out of the landscape, he describes the spot to be "rich, beyond the riches of kings. " He thought so highly of the place in the woods and seems so overwhelmed with guilt- he really does believe that there's a nature in the woods.
Wordsworth's thoughts and opinions of the days where he was moving into were obviously portrayed in his writings. He obviously felt that individuals experienced lost all touch using their natural do it yourself and thought that the only way they could get back again to those roots were to give up the materialistic views. He blamed industrialization for the parting between people and dynamics and believed that that they had become overtaken by money, electric power, and greed. He wrote about nature with techniques that were very common through the Romanticism era and are available not only in his writings, but others like Keats and Shelley. At the same time when industrialization was booming, Wordsworth proceeded to go against the norm, defending his beliefs. Through the Romanticism period writers were determined expressing themselves more actually and deeply and Wordsworth performed just that, especially in "THE EARTH Is AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF with Us"-which the audience can clearly understand the idea Wordsworth is wanting to maker. Unlike the Enlightenment, Romanticists did not limit themselves to just the visible world, but used imagination and transcendental emphasis. Many of these aspects is seen in "THE EARTH Is Too Much around" and "Nutting. " Especially in "Nutting" how Wordsworth uses his creativity to create a metaphor for the virginity arena and rape field that occurred in the woods. He is also very descriptive when he describing the moments of the woods and uses different types of imagery that place the reader in the storyline. The deep valued that was distributed for nature through the Romanticism age is very visible in these literary works and in my own opinion epitomizes mother nature.
