This paper examines William Wordsworth's poem "Tintern Abbey" and how it fit into the category of poetic Romanticism. The author looks at the style and philosophies of Romantic poets such as Wordsworth, the beauty in nature, tranquility, the simplicity in life, etc. The paper also discusses the works of Keats, Thomas Gray, and Romantic influences in American writers like Hawthorne and James Fenimore Cooper.

From the Paper:

"The Romantic writer turned not only to the world of nature but also to the world of history, often the Middle Ages (running from the 5th century to 15th century) for themes and settings and ideas. Thus it is not surprising that Wordsworth should choose Tintern Abbey. Not only was it beautiful and rural and so close to nature, but it also pulled him back to a time in history that he considered to be simpler and in many ways better. Like many Romantic poets, Wordsworth fell in love with Gothic buildings, ruins and graveyards."
