An Eco-critical Reading of William Wordsworths Tintern Abbey

Nure Jannat, Md. Tapu Rayhan, Maruf Rahman


Abstract: The study focuses on an outline of ecocriticism and the threats nature as well as human being faced in the world that William Wordsworth lived in. It presents William Wordsworth as very prescient about the dilapidation of the nature and solutions offered by him in Tintern Abbey to protect nature. I will try to show his attitude to nature in the light of ecocriticism and the expression of his feeling and passion as a part of what he appreciates and describes. Considering William Wordsworths love for nature this paper examines him as one of the pioneers in contributing to the thinking through his poetry that has made us to be eco-conscious and led to the development of the literary theory that is ecocriticism. This paper looks at the three stages portrayed in Tintern Abbey in the light of ecocriticism in order to agree that William Wordsworth was eco-conscious who viewed nature as a living entity and believed that nature was blessed with feeling and purpose. The findings reveal William Wordsworth as an eco-critic and substantiate William Wordsworths poem Tintern Abbey as a typical eco-critical work.
