The Abstract

The Nature has always been an associating determinant and a role player in the plot, narration and human action and in the imaginative structure of the novels. The writers arch their poetic sensibility in context of social awareness towards the nature’s laws and its truth. They sensitively draw both divinity and evil side of human psyche. In that respect the twentieth century writers of American literary world such as Earnest Hemingway’s Old Man and the Sea, Fare well to Arms; Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Scarlet Letter and Henry James’s Ambassadors   have carved deeper experience of an ordinary life in which nature and humans are depicted in opposition rather as fundamental integral part of ecology, environment and spiritual triumph.
