This essay took up current environmental issues. Wordsworth’s specific objects of love were his rural region, the Lake District. When he learned of plans to extend the railway into his region, he strongly opposed them and wrote in protest to preserve nature and the way of life of his neighbors. This opposition is said to be the starting point of the National Trust Movement. The trend of current society has put higher priority on the human sciences or economics over nature. As we have seen in Wordsworth’s works, casting a light on a sense of reverent awe and love of nature, which in turn leads to the love of mankind, might enable us to take a new look at our relationship with the natural environment.
