Abstract or Introduction
The essay deals with the recurring motifs of nature and imagination in the works of William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge were two of the great poets of the period of Romanticism. With a firm grasp of what writing good poetry meant they also had a vision on how it should be communicated to affect the world in becoming a more ethical and ideal place. Their work was most imaginative and so condensed that required extensive analysis and had the ability to constantly generate new meanings. Both poets shared a great admiration for nature and its enormous complexity and beauty and drew inspiration from it, transcending boundaries of plain logical perception by filtering their stimulations through the filter of their imagination. Their ambition was to create poetry that would open the eyes of the world to the marvel of life and creation thus elevating the spirit to a higher moral level and thus making the world better through their poetry.
