The process by which one becomes an environmentalist, that is, someone who cares for nature itself, begins by seeing “the pretty” within the natural world and “it expands through successive stages of the beautiful to values as yet uncaptured by language” (Leopold, 96). John Muir recognized the importance of beauty and wrote of its presence in all places, not just the pristine, as “beauty…is made manifest in the little window-sill gardens of the poor, though perhaps only a geranium slip in a broken cup, as well as in the carefully tended rose and lily gardens of the rich” (Muir, 97). Thus, humans must connect primordially to nature so that it reveals itself and inspires “wonder and awe” within the viewer (Cooper, 343). These emotions are translated into care for the land so one who comes to love the land, they are an environmentalist. Thus, everyone can develop a land ethic, not just the elite, and the classist nature of the environmental movement is
Words such as twinge, emanations, seeping, lurking, and babbling are just a few examples. Though these sophisticated words do enrich the story, they themselves are a kind of description. In fact, the majority of the description in The Veldt contains this word choice. “There was a green, lovely forest, a lovely river, a purple mountain, high voices singing, and Rima, lovely and mysterious, lurking in the trees with colorful flights of butterflies, like animated bouquets, lingering in her long hair.” (Bradbury). Lovely, mysterious, lurking, animated, and lingering; these words work and blend together with this description to depict an enchanting scene that the nursery has generated.

Clarity and obviousness arise as you consider the meaning of the statement. A farm is a place where plants grow, where the lushness and beauty of life flourish. When the valley is compared to a farm, it ironically furthers the idea of the bleak state of the land; accordingly doing
As laughter” (299). Things take a vital step forward in the evolution of Jaja and Kambili when they take a purple hibiscus plant to transplant in Enugu. “Jaja’s eyes shone as he talked about the hibiscuses as he held them out so I could touch the cold, moist sticks” (197). Additionally, established by Kambili, the plant represents internal emancipation: “rare, fragrant with the undertones of freedom, a different kind of freedom from the one crowd the crowds waving green leaves chanted. A freedom to be, to do” (16).
Vincent Van Gogh was known for experimenting with different types of nature - especially when it came to observing cypress trees, landscapes, and flowers during his lifetime in the Post Impressionism period. In this Post Impressionistic painting “Flowers in a Blue Vase,” the painting itself showed many features of color, pattern, and texture. With the colors of the flowers, all of the primary and secondary colors appear within the painting that includes a few tints of tertiary colors in the midst of some of the flowers and leaves that led to different variations of light and dark intensity colors that occurred more in the red and orange flowers. Plus there are some white flowers located on the upper left side of the piece with a few shades
He says, “Rock-ribbed and ancient as the sun,—the vales Stretching in pensive quietness between;The venerable wood” (0000). Bryant’s descriptions of natural things are incredibly detailed,and packed full of sensory. Bryant’s poem contains strong sensory prevalently throughout the poem.
