Lopez went into a lot of detail with all of the thoughts he had, so it was easier to understand what he was talking about. Nature in his point of view seemed a little weird to me. Lopez stated that you needed an intimate relationship with nature; I don’t think that relationship is necessary. Yes I love nature and I have many great memories from it, but I don’t see it was an intimate type of love.
The use of pathos affects the purpose by contrasting two different emotions in the same sentence to emphasis that sometimes you have to do something that isn’t so pleasant to bring a feeling of accomplishment and bliss when you are living a simple life. The use of Organization in “Higher Laws” helps relate the purpose to the reader. The use of Imagery in the first paragraph establishes Thoreau’s desire to engulf himself in nature and and the thrills that nature brings him. When he says “I caught a glimpse of a woodchuck…and felt a strange thrill of delight… and was tempted to seize and devour him…,” Thoreau uses his senses to stress the importance of nature and the feelings that it brings.
The romantic movement focuses on natural beauty and the emotional response to nature. William Wordsworth shows parallel ideas of the romantic era in “Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey”. Within the poem Wordsworth captures the natural essence of the Abbey’s nature. Using imagery and romantic perception Wordsworth portrays the speakers initial reaction to the nature at Abbey, and the change of coming back to the Abbey five years later. As a child, the speaker did not truly recognize the beauty in nature.
Theoretical Physicist Albert Einstein says, “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Essayist John Muir and Poet William Wordsworth both had one thing in common; they saw the beauty of nature and the correlation it had with life and they rejoiced in it. While John Muir revealed his strong, spiritual relationship with nature. On the other hand, William Wordsworth’s colorless and tedious outlook on the world is enlivened by nature in his poem “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud”

Depth of field/framing/Distance: long distance shots are used in order to highlight the importance of the landscape and nature vastness over the human character.

To Rousseau, innocence was key to rebuilding civilisation. He believed that reverting to nature would bring back childhood innocence and past attachments due to its simple state. After observing multiple tests from poets with various life experiences, it’s apparent that they agree with Rousseau. When looking at these poems it’s important to note when analysing these poems that innocence does not necessarily mean being in a childlike state, and was rather about keeping a moral imagination and recognising links within the world and how they work in collaboration with each other. It is apparent that the representation of innocence is widely due to the political and historical background during the Romantic period.
Coleridge’s frequent use of exclamation marks in the second stanza emphasises how amazed he was by the beauty of Nature. Also, the repetition of ‘wide’ emphasizes the vastness of the forest and the endless wonders that lie within. The use of expansion and contraction shows Coleridge’s change in view about him not being able to go on the trek. His admiration for the lime-tree bower contrasts with his original hatred for being stuck under the tree.

Both films are shot on location and the shots of the landscapes are impactful. They contrast with the rest of the films because there is an unprecedented naturalness that grounds the films and makes them feel like real places the audience could actually be a part of. As established before, Cuarón primary focus was to be explicit about the relationship between the characters and the environment, where he used the environment to reveal more of the world to audience. Many of the scenes, such as the Care of Magical Creatures class, the Hogsmeade excursion and the trio running through the school grounds feature the scenic landscape, which is then combined with prolonged shots of the scenery that set the time, place and mood of a scene. The use of a shot of the Weeping Willow and a shot of a flower wilting and blooming through the seasons also acts as a transition between plot points.
Chapters 14 & 15 explained Krakauer’s personal expedition to Devil’s Thumb. I learned a lot about Krakauer’s personal life and the factors contributing to his journey. After reading his personal experience, I understood his compassion for Chris McCandless 's life and journey and why he wrote Into The Wild. Krakauer explains how he had such devotion to climb Devil’s Thumb, but I interpreted this as him being type of guy who sets his mind to a task and then is extremely driven to accomplish it.
In his essay "A Literature of Place," Barry Lopez describes a literature that connects the importance of nature through basic human life. Claiming that "if you 're intimate with a place, a place with whose history you 're familiar, and you establish an ethical conversation with it, the implication that follows is this: the place knows you 're there.

He was drawn to the most dramatic sides of nature, such as waterfalls, chasms, holes, storms, the fury of weather, and the balance of light and dark. Nature’s life cycles became a metaphor to him for the human condition. All of his paintings are meant to tell stories about life and nature. He captured the sense of wilderness and the power of land that hasn’t been explored by humans. He loved nature and cared deeply for the health of the environment, not wanting negative consequences for the landscapes he painted.
