Description:

This essay discusses the relationship between nature and man that is exhibited in many great works of poetry. The essay examines the works of six authors: Edward Thomas, Robert Frost, Wallace Stevens, Allen Tate, W.S. Merwin and Robert Graves. The essay outlines the ways in which each of the author's works touches on a disturbing aspect of life that is either directly or indirectly associated with nature. The essay argues that man is inextricably connected with nature and that the authors use images in nature to express their thoughts and feelings. Further, the paper argues that poetry allows the reader to see the relationship between man and nature more clearly.

From the Paper:

"In Allen Tate's terza rima poem, "The Swimmers," nature becomes an integral aspect of the poet's experience in that it enables him to retain memory. This poem is a recollection of a tragic and powerful moment on the poet's life and the power of nature is illustrated in how the poet attaches certain elements of his experience with nature. These images help set the scene for the poet's experience as a young boy. There are moments to savor and anticipate, as summer is almost always associated with fun and freedom."
