“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun” Chris McCandless The wilderness is full of pleasant surprises and should be nothing to be afraid of. The television can intrigue us about the wilderness however; experiencing it is a new level of sensation. It is free and unstructured sense of fun, and is a tool to get people of all ages to experience something a lot larger than them ; which also is a part of them. The things that only the wilderness can teach us.
In these lines he is showing one of his largest beliefs; he thinks nature is superior to man, that we can learn more from nature than man could ever teach us. Another big piece of his works that shows us his love for nature is “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud.” Wordsworth depicts nature a lot as a comparison to happiness and feelings, especially when he writes, “A poet
(Suzuki, 5) His outings with his father were what fueled his interest in nature. (Dean) His heritage and love for nature has also helped shape who he is today. David Suzuki has had his share of difficulties, and he has faced and overcome many obstacles. He has been a target of racism, he has had difficulty with getting co-operation from industries that did not want to hear his message on climate change, and even the government itself has proven troublesome to David. (The Real News) Even still, he manages, and he constantly gets appraised for his work and for his accomplishments.
Throughout the poem time is portrayed as an authority figure with strict control over his life, eventually revealing the inescapable realisation of his mortality. A significant feature throughout the poem is the use of colour imagery to add life to the characters and convey ideas which would otherwise be difficult to grasp. At the beginning of stanza 2 this technique is used as the speaker illustrates how, as a young boy, he was vivacious and full of life, he describes himself as being: “green and carefree” “Green” as a representation of youth and vibrancy, and carefree to reinforce his sense of freedom from responsibility. Although full of life like, “green grass”, the poem communicates that there is a natural course that life has to follow, from childhood to adulthood and eventually, death. The poet’s thoughts towards his “carefree” life take a dramatic turn in stanza 4 when he describes: “Fire green as grass” The combination of “Fire” and “grass” is a representation of something destructive which occurred that caused a change in his own world-view.
The boy is overjoyed by the sight and decides to use the untouched beauty for his own pleasure by laying and playing in it. He sensually uses all senses to take the experience in, but, as he arises, he comes to the realization that he took the vulnerability of the nature for granted and has destroyed it. With great turmoil the poem sends the message that nature and any vulnerable thing in life (including poetry) should not be messed with because if it is not taken on with a gentle hand it may never be the same. Wordsworth’s counterparts in and before the Romantic Period wrote with a very professional format while Wordsworth uses simple terms so the average man can take something from his work. Therefore, if Wordsworth had conformed to the strict norms of literature at the time by changing and destroying his individual work, he would have lost the beauty and emotion in his free writing.
(Davenport, 2008). Both are opposites that complement each other, one sophisticated arrogant citybred, the other a wild, spontaneous and carefree man id the woods and plains. Sensual because there is a lot of sharing: what one thinks, feels, aspirations, dreams, fantasies, fears and deep set hopes, the whys, neverthlesses ans therefore of everyday life belong to this sphere, and this is what we basically share with our best friends (Lishtar, 1999). The character and personality of Gilgamesh change from the beginning through the ending of the epic. The epic
Man is naturally endowed with feelings of likes and dislikes, love and hatred. If these feelings increased then it becomes an inspiration. It is not essential that a man should be inspired by a personality; he can even be inspired by an incident, by a beautiful scene or by an action. William Wordsworth was influenced by nature and is known as poet of nature. In the same way I am highly influenced by my dad, with whom I have spent 18 springs of my life.
“Loveliest of Trees”, an elegant poem by A.E. Housman dramatizes the significance of spring awakening the young man. The main conflict presented in this poem is that as age increases, time to enjoy life decreases. The poem belongs to George Butterworth’s collection “A Shropshire Lad”. He is in fact the speaker of this poem, his voice sounds urging to the audience.
Nature is a wonderful and awesome creation of God. The beauty of nature mesmerizes every human being. That's why when you see a beautiful scenery or a greenery filed, mind just forgets all other thoughts, eyes never avoid looking at it and you will enjoy that pleasant nature to the maximum extent. Beautiful greenery of trees, extraordinary heights of mountains of ice and rocks, various cute colors & structures of flowers, growing agriculture forms, gardens, banks of rivers and oceans, panoramic views of beaches, amazing sunrise, sunset, moon light, fully covered fog, drifty clouds in the sky, various seasons, gestures and unique features of birds & animals and so on…which are incredible and can't explain in words. Many of the poets admired and inspired by observing different sights of nature's beauty.
Life Exposes the Pains and Celebrates the Joys Luke Puyol Life is complex. All of us experience our ups and downs, although we can never avoid pains. Hardship is always bound to occur, but so too is happiness. The joys of life often come as a relief to some unhappiness. Cool weather after a spell of heat, holidays after a stretch of tenuous school weeks, nourishment after hunger.
