Excerpt from Nature Knowledge in Modern Poetry: Being Chapters on Tennyson, Wordsworth, Matthew Arnold, and Lowell as Exponents of Nature-Study
While lovers of Poetry are pleased to see N ature - study finding a place in every school, they hail the innovation all the more that it is likely to add fresh interest to the study of Poetry in Which accurate N ature - references are part of the charm. The study of ﬂowers, of insects and birds will throw a new zest into the study of poets Who are rich in natural history allusions. It is because I think such knowledge is doubly charming and humanising When clothed in poetic language and judiciously used for poetic embellishment, that I have striven to garner the best material of this kind from four poets, Who, While they are all devotees of N ature, show considerable dif ference in their presentation of scientific facts.
