Description

“The Book of Nature” is a pocket book of poetry written by William Wordsworth.

A common theme of romantic poetry, nature features heavily in the work of William Wordsworth. To him, it represented a living thing; a sublime teacher-god that contained all beauty and divine truth. Through the poetry contained within this collection, Wordsworth expresses his view on the natural world and its important relationship with human beings. A wonderful collection of romantic poesy containing some of Wordsworth’s most celebrated poetry. Poems include: “Influence of Natural Objects”, “Lines Written While Sailing in a Boat”, “At Evening”, “A Night-piece”, “Nutting”, “Lines Written in Early Spring”, “My Heart Leaps Up”, “Yew-trees”, “Sonnets from the River Duddon”, “After-thought”, “Admonition”, “Sonnets – Beloved Vale! I Said”, etc. It also includes an introductory excerpt from “Reminiscences” (1881) by Thomas Carlyle.

William Wordsworth (1770–1850) was an English Romantic poet famous for helping to usher in the Romantic Age in English literature with the publication of “Lyrical Ballads” (1798), which he co-wrote with Samuel Taylor Coleridge. His best known work is perhaps “The Prelude”, a semi-autobiographical poem from his early years which was changed and expanded many times throughout his life. He was poet laureate of Britain between 1843 until his death in 1850. Other notable works by this author include: “The Tables Turned”, “The Thorn”, and “Lines Composed A Few Miles above Tintern Abbey”.
