Read the lines from Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey."
The sounding cataract
Haunted me like a passion: the tall rock,
The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood,
Their colours and their forms, were then to me
An appetite: a feeling and a love,
That had no need of a remoter charm,
By thought supplied, or any interest
Unborrowed from the eye.—
Which of these best describes the speaker's relationship to nature in these lines?
What do YOU think? Look carefully at some of the words:
haunted / deep and gloomy / feeling / love..... don't those words leave you with an impression?
