He 's a forerunner of Romanticism, and promoted the ideas of the return to nature, the Natural Law, the Noble Savage and the importance of natural education. His works influenced the leaders of the French revolution, since Rousseau rejected the restraints placed on man in his contemporary society. He encouraged man to embrace his emotions and to step away from the pretentiousness of society ("Jean-Jaqcues Rousseau"). Rousseau 's Romanticism was apparent in his visions of a regenerated human nature. He found man to be ultimately good in nature, and that society 's influence and pretentiousness are what spoiled man 's essential goodness.
Romantics often try to find inner peace and happiness in life from going into nature. The Romantic author’s love of nature can be seen from both Nature, written by Ralph Emerson, and Walden, written by Henry Thoreau. In the Nature, Emerson describes nature as a sacred place. Emerson has a positive view of nature. In the passage, Emerson states, “Standing on the bare ground—my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space—all mean egotism vanishes.
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.
According to the critic Alex Ross, “Wilde’s aestheticism, his fanatical cult of beauty, was the deepest and most lasting of his passions, and it is now the most radical thing about him” (Ross para 5). Wilde was a member of the Aestheticism movement which tried to free art from being a tool for moral enlightenment and sought art as only being beautiful. In his preface, Wilde writes: “The purpose of Art is to have absolutely no purpose”. That is exactly Wilde’s philosophy of Art, the same philosophy generated by Basil in The Portrait. Basil seems to lead a truly simple life and is depicted by
These vistas opening upon frightful substances don't at all refute the excellence Frost additionally finds in nature; rather, it is they which give his warblers, wild blooms, streams, and trees their impactful interest. The appeal of a large number of the nature verses comes about because of the striking quality with which sweet, fragile things emerge against the grave foundation. You can't have the one without the other: love of characteristic excellence and ghastliness at the remoteness and indifference of the physical world are not contrary energies but rather unique parts of a similar view. The contrast between a "lovely" nature poem and a poem of sterner vision is only one of accentuation. For instance, the verse, " A Boundless Moment," gives us one of those crisp looks of excellence which have made Frost's nature poetry so prominent, yet it manages basically an indistinguishable perspective of reality from "Dispossessed" which is among the poet's saddest and most terrifying poems.
The fast development of London, from a populace of 2 million when Victoria went to the throne to one of 6.5 million when of Victoria 's passing, shows the sensational move from a lifestyle focused around the responsibility for to a current urban economy. England accomplished a colossal increment in riches, yet quick and unregulated industrialization brought a group of social and monetary issues. A few authors, for example, Thomas Babbington Macauley commended England 's advancement, while others, for example, Mathew Arnold felt the relinquishment of customary rhythms of life demanded a shocking cost in human bliss. The Reform Bill of 1832 gave the working class the political force it required to solidify and to hold—the monetary position it had officially accomplished. Industry and business expanded.
However, the reader can 't help but sense the fear and concern these romantic writers experienced during the Romanticism Era since it followed the Industrial Revolution and threatened a critical source of peace these individuals had which is nature. They thrived on literature, nature and imagination to glorify the present and paint it in the finest artistic way possible. We still enjoy these works of arts by simply holding a book and unleashing the power of imagination. Regarding to my personal reflection about the poem, it is a simple poem with lots of imagery. It is a very beautiful poem gives a close image of the purity and beauty of nature, and the deep human emotion inspired by the natural landscape.
The cause of economic history of Germany in 19th century The economic development of a country depends on so many factors . For example political, the trade of economic, the development of industrialization, resources of the country , even the leader’s leadership and so on these internal factors. Even the development of the world this external factors. In mid - the nineteenth Century, when the British completed the industrial revolution, German was still a backward agricultural country.

In verse one of “The Passionate Shepherd to his Love”, Christopher Marlowe gets straight to the point by saying, “Come live with me”. This shows just how passionate the shepherd is and then there is a pause where he goes on to say, “…and be my love”. This is more of a gentle tone and softens what has just been said. In the last two lines of this stanza, Marlowe lists all the things the Nymph and the shepherd will do together, and by listing them, he is making it seem as though there is an amazing variety of landscape to enjoy. These areas he is listing are all dramatic, natural pleasures and have not been changed by man, nothing is artificial.
The struggle for honest self expression became more urgent and explicit at this period. The most striking fact in literature of this era is the revolution of poetic taste and practice. The poet is no longer the sweet singer whose function was to render in verse and an imagery drawn with great selectivity from nature and self-indulged personal emotion. He is now the explorer of experience who uses language in order to build up rich patterns of meaning unfolded by using abrupt contrasts and eliminating overt statements. The imagery in W.B.
