However there is a deeper connection between romanticism and nature all together. Many poets consider nature as the source of human ideas and emotions. “Henry David Thoreau says a poet who lived in a cabin on Walden Pond for two years, believed that people were meant to live in the world of nature”. Although the work of nature is characterized by search for self or identity, the poet William Wordsworth getting inspiration from Coleridge and nature wrote of the deeper emotions. Romanticism and nature are connected because the artists and philosophers of the romantic period romanticized the beauty of nature, and the power of the natural world.
John Muir’s essay, The Calypso Borealis, and William Wordsworth’s poem, I wandered Lonely as a Cloud, are two wonderfully written works centered towards their love for nature. They were able to create vivd images in the reader’s head through their writing as well as emotional transitions. Both works, inspired by events in the 19th century, have their differences, however, their emotion and love for nature is the same and creates the same impact with the

This point is also sustained by the work of Emily Dickinson. She wrote at the tail end of the Romantic period, and even though she was influenced by some of the ideals of Transcendentalist, is commonly known as a writer from the Romanticism era. Her writing embodies the defining characteristics that were identified with this period. The main characteristic of Romanticism that Emily Dickinson portrayed in her poems is the emphases on how important Nature is for the transcendentalists. In most of her poems it is possible to find a kind of comparison of something found in Nature.

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.

Writers and poets don’t just spring out of the ground and thrive, they go through hardships and fails to get to where they are or end up. Edgar Allan Poe, a truly mysterious man , was a poet,novelist, and writer born on January 19, 1809. He was an accomplished poet, wrote mysteries, horror stories, fictional pieces, and was called the Father of the Detective Story. Edgar Allan Poe was orphaned when he was three due to his parents death. This impacted him both negatively and positively.
Edgar first started writing when he was younger. He mainly wrote short stories, none like those in his adult life. Writing was always something Edgar loved. He did stop writing for a while while in the military, but after leaving military school he got back into writing, mostly as a harsh critic in newspapers and magazines. His critiques in the papers and magazines were so harsh and rude that people started calling him the Tomahawk man , but sadly writing in magazines and newspapers barely earned Edgar enough money to live on.
Water plays a large role in the poem “Telemachus” by Ocean Vuong. Descriptions of, or allusions to water can be found in the text in almost every stanza. I believe that the heavy use of water in the poem represents change and impermanence. The setting of the poem is established as a seashore in the first and second stanzas, by the line “I pull my father out of the water, drag him by his hair through sand”. Seashores are generally seen as ever-changing, carved by waves and the shifting of tides.
