The Significance of Nature in ‘Lines Written a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey’

Write about the significance of Nature in the poem, and the speaker’s relationship with Nature:

The “power” of nature lies in its “healing” and “restor[ing]”properties that define Wordsworth’s relationship with nature, allowing both the reader and Wordsworth reflection and transcendence. These important aspects of the ‘Sublime’ reinforce Wordsworth’s identity as a Romantic and a Pantheist during a period of industrialisation.
