The first stage is that of childhood and is represented by romantic descriptions of nature and an overall feeling of happiness. This stage can be referred...

He himself, in modified Puritan spirit, defined poetry as a criticism of life; his mind was philosophic; and in his own verse, inspired by Greek poetry, by Goethe and Wordsworth, he realized his definition...
