Experiences in Nature J Alfred Prufock looms at a dinner party contemplating human social interaction whist Wordsworths narrarator ponders his turbulent feelings of nature and aging Trudging over opposite ideas the narrarators share the burdens of isolation alienation and trouble caused by nature These afflictions of isolation and alienation disturb the narrarators for differing reasons and the types of nature troubling them differ Wordsworths narrators worries carry him to the past whereas Prufrocks troubles seize him to the present and look into the future Both narrarators share burdens dealing with isolation and nature but Prufrocks faces an opposite more extreme nature then Wordsworth The narrarator in Wordsworths poem speaks of a problem he has encountered He lost his ability to experience the glories of nature Wordsworth writes There was a time when meadow grove and stream The earth and every common sight To me did seem Appareled in a celestial light The glory and the freshness of a dream It is not as it hath been of yore1141 This passage displays how the narrarator viewed everything in nature as heavenly but can no longer see this presenting the conflict the narrarator faces The narrarator still recognizes nature all around him as Wordsworth writes The rainbow comes and goes And lovely is the Rose The moon doth with delight Look round her when the heavens are bare Waters on a starry night Are beautiful and fair The sunshine is a glorious birth But yet I know whereer I go That there hath past away a glory from the earth1141 Despite having nature in view the narrarator lost his ability to gain insight from it and he feels some glory has left earth The narrarator thus endures a turbulent series of emotions as Wordsworth writes As to the tabors sound To me alone there came a thought of grief A timely utterance
