The problem is to analyze Wordsworth's poetry in terns of the continental and contemporary English concept of naturalism to determine whether or not the poet was a true naturalist.
The writer will attempt to prove that Wordsworth's concept of naturalism was similar to the continental concept of naturalism; that Wordsworth was deeply affected by nature and nature's laws and that he reflected this feeling in his poetry and that biographical factors influenced the poet's works.
The writer will also attempt to prove that Wordsworth was a true naturalist and that an analysis of his poetry will reveal that in an appreciable number of his poems, naturalism is the predominate theme.
The purpose of this study is to show the extent to which naturalism is revealed in selected works of Wordsworth.
