Comment on the aptness of the title of H. W. Longfellow's poem "Nature."
The title of this poem is definitely relevant to the poem, although Nature is really not what the poem is about. So I would say it is somewhat relevant.
Nature is a relevant title because Nature is portrayed as the kind mother who is leading us toward death. She is reassuring us that it is not scary and is doing what is best for us. So she is a major character.
But the poem is not about nature. It is about death and our human attitudes towards death. So a title that shows that might have been more relevant.
