“It seems wonderful that so frail and lovely a plant has such power over human hearts.”, John Muir. Both authors Muir and Wordsworth capture the beauty of nature, while writing their compassion for nature. William Wordsworth captures his moment of beauty through a poem while John Muir captures his moment through an essay. They use imagery to create the scenery and amazement they each experienced during their meetings with nature. Wordsworth and Muir express their connection and love of nature by using similes and hyperboles to express to the reader just how much nature has impacted their lives.
