“An Entrance to the Woods” is an essay by Wendell Berry about the serenity and importance of nature in his life. In this essay, the author uses tone shifts from dark to light to convey his idea of finding rebirth and rejuvenation through nature. In the beginning of the essay, Berry has left civilization for the first time in a while, and finds himself missing human company and feeling “inexplicably sad” (671). This feeling of sadness is in part from the woods itself, and partly due to Berry leaving the hustle and bustle of normal life in the cities, and the violent change from constant noise to silence causes him to feel lonely in the woods. As a result of feeling alone in the woods, the tone of the essay is dark and brooding, as seen through Berry’s somber diction and mood, as seen on page 671: “And then a heavy feeling of melancholy and lonesomeness comes over me.

Nature: Sprouting Past Man’s Control In Andrew Marvell’s “The Mower’s Song”, the protagonist utilizes his relationship to the meadows to symbolize the suffering he undergoes when his romantic interest presumably denies him. Although Marvell never explicitly states what his love interest does to crush his romantic aspirations, his reference to the role between the mower and the meadow serves as the perfect representation of his internal well-being. However, the poem strays beyond the simple conveyance of unrequited love: the mower’s comparison to the meadow’s flourishment serves to emphasize the mower’s struggle to manipulate the meadow, and thus nature. By detailing the mower’s misfortune with love, Marvell portrays nature’s constancy in relation to humanity’s ever-changing nature. While at times nature seems to be in accord with the narrator’s inner thoughts and mood, there are times when the narrator’s stability is not as unwavering as nature.
