Thank you very much. I think you misunderstood my sentence starting with "unlike in Wordsworth" since I wanted to draw a parellel between Wordsworth's and Coleridge's concept of nature.
Can you help me rephrase sentences number 2 and 3? Thank you.

1)Unlike in Wordsworth, nature is not seen as a moral guide but is infused with abstract, supernatural meanings.
2) What does the term Victorian refer to and what did the Victorian code of values consist of?
3) Briefly outline the relationship between man and nature in the Romantic Age. Focus then on Wordsworth's poem "Daffodils" and describe how the flowers are presented in the poem.

    2) What does the term Victorian refer to and what did the Victorian code of values consist of?
    If your teacher doesn't mind sentences/clauses that end with prepositions, then this is fine; however, it your teacher objects to this type of construction, you'll need to rephrase.

    3) OK

    I would get 1) right first. You cannot draw a parallel by seeing contradictions.
    "Unlike his wife, he was mild mannered"
    "Unlike chapter two, chapter three was short.

    If you want to contrast the nature of Wordsworth and Coleridge, then these would work...
    Unlike Wordsworth's nature, Coleridge...
    Differing from Wordsworth, Coleridge's nature was viewed as...

    2) Why not two sentences? What does the term Victorian refer to? What did... I personally see mixed strings of questions irritating and annoying, here in Texas often one sees that nonsense in political debates.
    "What did the mother do, and should she go to prison? How fast was he going and did he hit the fireplug? Why did he increase taxes over and over and why do the schools need that money?

    3. ..then on Wordsworth's poem "Daffodils", describing how the flowers...
