  • Power In William Wordsworth's Tintern Abbey

    Wordsworth’s concept of power predicates on the union of all living things through nature and the human imagination; it is the power to create beauty in the natural world which encompasses every human being. Wordsworth’s power is an energy which binds the imaginations of all living things in the pursuit of beauty. Wordsworth’s features his concept of power prominently into his poem “Tintern Abbey” to showcase his belief that everything is connected. The term itself is first encountered in the poem’s second stanza, when Wordsworth refers to “an eye made quiet” by the “power of Harmony”(47/48).

With this, Wordsworth expands his concept of power from oneness with nature to oneness with all beings. At this point in the poem, Wordsworth is alone with nature as his only surrounding. This aloneness allows Wordsworth to realize his connection not only to his natural surroundings,…
