Mohamed Jabraddar Mahil Abd Allah


This study has attempted to examine the use of nature as a vehicle to express thoughts in the English poetry of the romantic period (1757-1822). It has aimed to explain the role of nature as a dominant factor in inspiring the poets of the romantic period to express different thoughts. It has also aimed to show how the romantic poets appreciate nature, love and social life. Six poems were selected, randomly, to represent the English poetry of the romantic period (1757-1822). The poems were analyzed quantitatively. Results showed that various figures of nature were used by the poets in order to express their thoughts. According to the results, the study suggests that it will be useful, for future researchers, to study the socio-culture aspects in poetry. In addition, to study other periods of poetry rather than the romantic period.
