Tennyson’s Treatment of Nature in His Poems


Alfred Tennyson is a notable poet of the Victorian age who also studied nature with detail detail and accuracy of observation. Although Tennyson handles nature in his poems, but he may not acquire prominence as Wordsworth and Keats as a poet of nature. Wordsworth explores the meaning spiritual in nature while treating Keats of nature is purely sensual but Tennyson has drawn and colored the naturaleza-fotos with the conscious pictorial care of the artist. Tennyson create with Coleridge to interpret the mood of nature according to our mood, and that nature is happy or not. On the nature of the Romantic movement is regarded as a phenomenon that one could turn to guidance, spiritual sustenance and mental restoration. Tennyson belief often led him to describe and develop a human being in terms of natural phenomena. For example, in “Lotus eaters the” indolence of the sailor is made with reference to the pause of the streams, persistent Sun, precipitation of the languid air, etc.

Tennyson, Browning, and Arnold lost a universal enthusiasm for nature as the romantic poets. In the majority of cases the influence of nature was in sound and healthy, and symptomatic of the spiritual unity of the universe. The Victorians were not able to maintain the confidence and optimistic as possible for the romantics. On the one hand, as we will see, science humor a love of nature in any way as intense, as everything that one can recognize in earlier centuries, but on the other hand, with an emphasis on mechanical and chemical aspects of natural process, looking magic and not leaving room for spiritual direction. However now we can channel the poems of Tennyson where takes great interest in nature. “However” is one of the poem more outstanding that serves vast evidence of great interest and love for the nature of Tennyson. In this poem there is calm and quiet tomorrow with them leaves discolored, gossamers silver, the overcrowding of them farms ambrosia, Sycamore imposing, bats was in heaven fragrant, them trees put their arms dark on the field, the grey Orange old, the solo field, the boat climb the wind etc. them pictures of the nature in this poem would give pleasure and pain , because the poet shows that light of the Moon not only falls on the bed of the poet, but also in the tomb of friends dead in the Church. Often natural objects evoke a feeling of sadness rather than joy because they highlight human morality. In a famous passage (85) for example, the traditional procession of nature highlights human pain.

review “in spite” Charles Kingsley found that the idea of the root of all poetry idea of “dignity of nature” in all its manifestations of his generation. The description of the nature of this poem gives us the idea that plays an important role in the emotional development of the poem. In this poem Tennyson does not seek any associative principle which could be made a permanent reference in nature. However the poem of Tennyson “Ooeone” begins with the description of a valley in the Ida where steam of swimming is drag of pine to pine. On both sides of the stream are shelves in flower-rich meadows and lawns. Far below them roars along Brook, falling into cataract after falls to the sea. Back Valley is the highest peak of Gargarus:

“… the ravine of clover ‘ n
in waterfall after waterfall sea.”

behind the Gargarus upper Valley. “

the subject of this poem is concentrated by the unhappy experience of”Oeone”when she is being abandoned by her husband Paris.” Addressing the mother IDA and deal with land, hills, caves, and mountain streams, Oeone began to tell their sad story in the song. Also the poem “Tithonus” begins by the description of nature as “the decay of wood, wood decay and fall.” In this poem is the cry of the steam and the description of the death of the Swan after many summers. The poet describes the gradual onset of dawn in the person of Aurora. His kisses have a rich sensual shower Aurora image at the mouth of Tithonus, eyelids, kisses that were “blown sprouts medio-apertura of April”.

the study of nature in Victorian poetry is inextricably linked with the study of religion and science, since the revolution that took place in the religious and scientific thought inevitably had a direct effect and attitude towards nature. Nature must always loom large in any study of Victorian poetry, because it was one of the most important poetic subjects three or four. Foundation success of Tennyson poems nature serves as one of the basic functions. In “The Lotus eaters” the landscape and the landscape are symbolic of feelings of the sailors. Description of wide naturaleza-cuadros as a sunset, Crimson light of the setting sun, snow peaks, leaf, Apple and flower grow, ripen and fall silently. In fact, nature, as the inhabitants of this island has eaten of indolent oblivion of Lotus fruit. “Locksley Hall” the poet addresses the nostalgic feeling for expressing natural images. The poet used to roam the sea and saw the great Orion and Pleiades at night through the window. In short, we cannot regard to Tennyson as the romantic poets as a poet of nature, but we see that you certainly nature by his close scientific and meticulous observation. He often anticipates the nature to describe and develop the human being in general.
