The paper explores this concept of nature as being a divine revealing agent in the poem "Tintern Abbey". The paper then discusses how nature is embodied in the symbols of wind and storm in "Wuthering Heights." The paper compares both works as a representation of nature being concerned with the spiritual dimension.

From the Paper:

"The Romantics regarded Nature as a carrier of elevated, enlightening, mystical meanings. They granted Nature a dimension beyond material existence, capable of transcending the souls of human beings and imparting essential revelations as well as spiritual restoration and tranquility. This can be observed in the poem Tintern Abbey by William Wordsworth. A variation from the typical Romantic view of Nature is found in Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. In the later work, Nature is regarded not as an inspirer of peace, tranquility and meditation, but of wild, ghostly, eerie, and mysterious messages."

Sample of Sources Used:

  • Bronte, Emily. Wuthering Heights. Penguin Books, England. 1994.
  • William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Lyrical Ballads. J. & A. Arch, London, 1978.
