During the era or industrial Revolution, there was even a protest against destruction of Nature by industrialization. As such the nature poets were influenced by the Rousseau's clarion call of the Return to Nature." In our post-industrial age, there has been a world-wide revolution of return to nature or of the safeguarding of the destruction of nature because nature is our foster -mother: It upholds our whole existence. So says S. Murali, "In the present post- industrial age (although a large percentage of the world's populace are non -beneficiaries of the industrial produce) ecological concerns have been surfacing at a drastic pace in every sphere of living: "nature has now come to be recognised as intrinsically, valuable, independent of
Poets also use this technique of memory in poems making their poems more meaningful. Technically speaking, it is a fascinating way to write a poem and what will be discussed regarding this technique of 'memory' is the role of memory, good and bad effects of using this technique and the general idea behind using this technique.

d.) In Tuwhare’s poem (2001) “No ordinary sun”, the narrator addresses an emblematic nature symbol, a tree. As the poem talks about the tree death (the nature death), the tone is solemn, but at the same time the narrator shows appraisal for its unusual dignity, and extols its spirit strength. This poem reminds us of the many functions that this plant has, above all, weather regulation and oxygen supply. Likewise, it seems a surrender invitation since the conditions are not what they used to be (now there is a lot of pollution). It is pointless dwelling on a battle that is already lost.

The prominent feature of his poetry is hidden in disjoint timeline, abrupt end, ironic juxtaposition of past and present, literary allussions, quotations, historical and mythological interpretations and references, the multiple voices, stream of consciousness, usage of quotations in their original language, and repetition of the lines from the previous poems. Furthermore, Eliot turns his poem into a song-like poem by strengthening it with musical pieces. The chaotic modern wasteland is created through fragmented and unrelated broken images and collage of allussions. The pastoral images are embodied as the essential vehicle of aestheticism rather than metrical pattern.
