The poem Composed upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1802 by William Wordsworth is about the main bridge leading to London. It is quite clear that this poem does not express a romantic view of nature because there is no benefit to the bond between nature and mankind.
There is a definite bond between nature and man in this work. However the bond is not beneficial. The phrase "this City doth, like a garment, wear the beauty of the morning" illustrates this point. The City "wears" the beauty of the morning, but that beauty is likened to a garment, which can be easily, tossed aside and furthermore covers up what is true and real underneath.
Also the beauty and purity of nature alone is highlighted, to contrast what the city has done to the earth. Wordsworth contrasts the two by describing the river's "smokeless" air and how this pure air never shone as "beautifully" or in its great "splendor".
Upon a quick glance, one might decide that Composed upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1802 by William Wordsworth is a Romantic work. Careful analysis into the heart of the poem reveals the converse is true. By highlighting the beauty of pure nature in contrast to the city, the bond between the two is proven to be mutually harmful, not beneficial.
