Ep. 055 – Reason, Nature, and the Romantic Poets

“Once again

Do I behold these steep and lofty cliffs,

That on a wild secluded scene impress

Thoughts of more deep seclusion; and connect

The landscape with the quiet of the sky.”

Excerpt from “Lines Written a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey,” by William Wordsworth
