William Wordsworth can be considered the first and greatest English romance writer. Wordsworth loved the natural world so he wrote about rural life and religious life. He detested capitalist urban civilization as well as cold monetarism. He was therefore able to live in complete seclusion at Lake area, far from city. This is how his Lake Poet title was earned. He did more than just present a variety of ideas and propositions in his prologue to Lyric Ballads. His representative work Tintern Abbey (and many other works that seek to uncover the inner worlds of all humanity) was a major contribution to the rise of modern poetry. This paper will focus on the artistic qualities of his most well-known poem, Tintern Abbey.

Wordsworth believed that poetry had to be created using plain and simple language. Poetry can only be richer and more intense if it includes every insect, flower, and tree in the world. It can also reflect the love and respect for nature. The poet vividly describes the wonderful scenery he witnessed at Tintern Abbey five decades later. He also discusses the psychological process that took place when the lovely scenery made him recall past changes. The poet blends the beauty and grandeur of the natural world with his imaginative vision and unique perspective to create this poetic combination. A kind of deep philosophy is found in ordinary poems that express feelings about the scenery. It tends arouses the admiration of nature and the thought of inheritance, transformation, and creation of life. Word repetition was a technique that many poets use to express strong emotions after the return of the poem “Tintern Abbey.” Every time a word is repeated, the reader’s imagination focuses on the level of each word. The poem begins with the word ‘five’ three times. ‘Five is more that a number. It is a powerful reminder about the past. Through simple language, the poet expresses his thoughts about time. Five years may be a long time for the author. It could mean sadness or happiness. To express his gratitude for the five years he has lived, he used the number ‘five’ because only nature can provide vitality and vitality. The paradox and unity between subjection and objection in a poem are what make it unique. However, the poet’s artistic ideal and aesthetic emotion are the key to determining the poem’s essence. This is possible only if you have an artistic vision of high quality. A combination or sublimation of typical emotions or images is what makes an artistic concept a decisive factor. This emotion is only possible if the text creates a connection between the reader and the artist’s image. Image can be described as a scenario that is created through imagination or fantasy. It is not imitation but an artistic image that has been permeated by the poet’s feelings. This poem contains many natural images that Wordsworth describes. The poet didn’t just describe a calm, intuitive description. He also described a fusion between thoughts and feelings that he had for nature and his pursuit of freedom. The poet used his imagination to create images of life and merged emotions and scenes. This is where Wordsworth’s poem stands out.

Tintern Abbey, Wordsworth’s sole poem on identity, is Tintern Abbey. Wordsworth’s poem Tintern Abbey is about finding his lost self within the calm of nature. Wordsworth wrote a lot of poetry about nature.

Wordsworth’s 1804 masterpiece, I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud is a masterwork of lyricism. According to the poet’s sister and brother, the poem is about their love for nature. The entire poem can be broken down into Landscape and Lyric. The poem begins with a solemn first-person narrative. He tries to remember the elusive information that memory can provide. But he also feels free to take in the beauty of nature. He likens himself as a floating cloud. His imaginative lines hint at a sense that he is free from the loneliness of being alone and allowing others to do the same. His memory recalls the daffodils moving in the wind as stars.

Tintern Abbey’s fourth and first stanzas are about water, mountain, or stone. The scenery in the fourth is what the poet saw five-years ago. The present scenery is described in the first. At the time, water was described as “a soft-inland murmur” that “rolls from their mountain springs”. Years later, however, the poet said that he remembered seeing in the past and that it was “The sounding cataclysm”, that “haunted”. However, the same water can offer a completely different mood. The waterfall was viewed by the youth as a powerful and unstoppable force. However, five years ago the poet saw a flowing river. Two distinct mindsets can create two images. These images are permeated in the poet’s own feelings. This allows readers to see the hidden beauty and value of the poet. Aside from that, what the poet saw in the past were “the tallrock, / And the mountain, and the dark and gloomywood”. Young poets loved the forms and colors of the scenery. The poets of that time did not have the maturity to understand the underpinnings of the present. Two words, “deep” or “gloomy”, were chosen by the poet to describe the woods. They not only captured the mystery and charm of the woods but also showed the young poet’s psychological response. The poet saw a different scene five years later.

Are these cliffs so high and steep?

It is a stunning scene in the wild and remote.

You may think of deeper seclusion and more connection.

The peacefulness of the skies is what makes the landscape so beautiful.

These landscapes were no longer his hobbies. They became an organic whole that he relied on and harmonised with. The poet created a fascinating figure: a deer to represent his past. The poet was able to see himself through the eyes and feel his emotions.

The Wye River was the source of his spiritual comfort, and thought, when the poet was away at the abbey. This image was not only accurately depicted by the poet, but also how he thought about it.

In darkness, and among the many forms

The joyless sunshine; the worried stir

The fever of the planet, and unprofitable

You have been my constant companion.

How many times, in spirit, am I turning to thee?

O sylvan Wye! Wanderer through the woods!

How many times has my spirit turned towards thee!

This simple, implicit representation adds charm to the Wye River image and creates an atmosphere of blending emotions and scenes. It inspires imagination, gives strength and magnifies the beauty of everyday life.

He had purified his mind in the last stanza. He could feel:

A deeper intermixed version.

Whose home shines the sun into the darkness?

The living air and the ocean are both round.

The blue sky, and the mind man

The impetus to move and inspire.

All things that think, all objects that think,

All things are covered by his grin.

All things, including light, sky, water, and air, are endowed with the spirit God. They facilitate the harmonious operation and subjective thoughts of all objects and peoples in the universe. This unique method creates an image that is both unconventional and artistic. It also gives readers more room to imagine.

Wordsworth’s travels in Europe over his life made his knowledge of nature deeper and more real. People are unable to find peace and tranquility due to the chaos of the French Revolution. This revolution was intended to liberate human nature. The poet supported the revolution with great enthusiasm, but the revolution has triggered a flood of people returning to nature. Tintern Abbey, a poem that depicts the beauty and power of nature and humankind, shows how nature can influence human behavior and the relationship between humans and nature. Wordsworth and the sister of the poet swam on the banks of the river, returning to the poet with the memories of the past and the beauty of the natural world. The poet was a part nature and integrated into it. The scene he and the sister took to the river five decades ago was the one that brought him closer to nature. This poem reveals the beauty and wonder of human nature.
