There never seems to be an ending and all author one yearns for is that the “receding line of the horizon” will be “gained and passed.” Once again the author is talking about the horizon and the hope it can bring to him. All hope he thought was lost, the prairie’s very flatness left “nothing to the imagination, and cramped its interest.” It was a scene not to be forgotten, but close enough. The authors choice of words here shows that there was no magical prairie, but rather a desert filled with no life. Author two concludes with the idea that even in the “bare upland ridges” great antlers are found. Telling once of the great prosperity and life that once lived in the wonderful prairie.

5. While My Antonia and A Wagner Matinée (written by Willa Cather) are stories that differ greatly in the aspect of narrators and occurrences, both of these pieces have similar themes. They both show an appreciation towards the prairie and how the prairie affected the lives of the people who lived off of them. Both the main characters of these works first saw desolation in the prairie, then came to see the actual beauty in it. In Book I (The Shimerdas) of My Antonia, Jim Burden described Nebraska on page 11 as “There seemed to be nothing to see; no fences, no creeks or trees, no hills, or fields…There was nothing but land: not a country at all, but the material out of which countries were made”.

Leilah Smith Dr. Cothren English II G March 1, 2018 Behind the Scenes: The Blissfulness of Nature Nature is a pure and natural source of renewal, according to Romantics who frequently emphasized the glory and beauty of nature throughout the Romantic period. Poets, artists, writers, and philosophers all believe the natural world can provide healthy emotions and morals. William Wordsworth, a notorious Romantic poet, circles many of his poems around nature and its power including his “The World is Too Much With Us” and “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud.” At first glance, the two poems seem alike, with many parallels corresponding to the importance of nature and its impact on human beings. Although both poems have different tonal approaches, they both come to the same conclusion that nature is a necessity to all human beings. Wordsworth’s livid tone in “The World is Too Much with us” presents his true feelings towards the materialistic ideals during the Industrialization period whereas “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” is more light and simple.

Particularly on my second visit, when I took the time to simply sit and observe my surroundings, I found a sense of calmness in the craziness of animals, kids and adults that was swirling around me. Everyone besides a few playing wallabies followed the rule of no running and instead people of all age stood, or slowly approach the animals, with eyes full of excitement and curiosity. After viewing the reactions of all in the premises, I would conclude that the Kangaroo Creek Farm is a valued and important part of many residents and tourists of Kelowna, Lake Country and all surrounding neighbourhoods. I feel that Kangaroo Creek Farm is a wonderful way for humans and animals to interact, and to bring awareness to the protection of certain
