Romantic poetry is characterized by a love of the out-of-doors world. Suffocated with the artificialities of city life the romantics turned to nature. Many of them went and actually lived in her midst. Coleridge, too, loved nature. He observed her with his eyes steadily fixed upon and could describe her with feeling and with greater accuracy and minuteness than lords worth. In some of his nature-piece, he is as sensuous as Keats. He often finds in nature, bolls of his thoughts and feelings, and often the reflects his own soul.
