Role of Nature in the Poetry of Keats and Wordsworth Essay -- Poetry An

character vie an important role in all works of the Romantics further I believe it is John Keats and William Wordsworth who understood not nature in themselves however themselves in nature. As Wordsworth once said the feeling therein essential gives importance to the action and situation and not the action and situation to the feeling. 1 Both Keats and Wordsworth understood that the most complex feelings and e doings can be describe and understood when related with a elemental act of nature. With a simple gust of hoist we argon given a glimpse into an authors thought as it is apply to convey thoughts, feelings and moods of an author. In Keats The Eve of St. Agnes the wind is used not only to set the scene of a stormy iniquity but also I think as a means to describe Porphyros ecstatic heart. Flutterd in the besieging winds uproar / And the long carpets pink wine along the gusty floor.2 You can imagine as they are running through the halls and out the door how his heart mus t be leaping with both joy and fear. As the wind tugs at the tapestries on the walls and lifts the carpet from the floor his heart may feel tugs of guilt for whisking her forth and also freedom and joy. In Keats poesy, To Autumn the wind is personified with these words, ...as the light wind lives or dies...3 As the wind picks up and comes to life with motion and character it can also slow and cease as exit life. I believe Keats relates his feelings of life and death to the seasons of nature in this verse. To me this poem seems to end abruptly, perhaps because I know the winter season is withal to come but it makes me wonder if perhaps Keats found peace as he was writing and decided to just leave it at that. When interlingual rendition this poem in particular I feel Keats inspiration ... ...ps something a good deal more solid underneath. After speaking to the old man, Wordsworth confirms this realization as he says I could have laughed myself to scorn to find / In that dilapi dated Man so firm a mind15 and Wordsworth ends the poem with a sense of comfort on the lonely moor.16During their time both men found solace in their writing. And while they wrote they move inspiration, motivation and an understanding of what was in their hearts by observing what was in their surroundings. Nature played an important role not only in their imagery but also by giving them something to relate and correspond their thoughts and feelings to. Not only did they reach an understanding of themselves through nature but we were left with an understanding of them through the simple, timelessness of nature. To her fair works did Nature link / The human soul that through me ran.17
