Abstract Generally it is believed that Wordsworth was a poet of nature and that he was an escapist as he ran as hard as he could, towards the world of nature, to get away from the realities of life. But the fact is that Wordsworth was a poet of Humanity; he stood more for the real happiness and well being of man rather than observing rainbows and fields. He employs nature in his poems as a remedy to a diseased world and shows how nature heals, nurtures and restores the soul from the enervating effects of industrialism and materialism. Wordsworth was an environmentalist, psychiatrist, educationist, in short a lover of mankind. This article intends to explore Wordsworth as a poet of Humanity who throughout his life fought for the betterment of Humanity.
