The Material Abbey: J. M. W. Turner and William Wordsworth by Dewey W. Hall

The paper examines representations of Tintern Abbey, as part of the Wye Valley, by J. M. W. Turner and William Wordsworth through visual and print mediums. The attempt is to demonstrate that artist and poet alike recognise the significance of the abbey as an iconic structure, which, in my opinion, functions also as host for living beings. In juxtaposition, the abbey and Wye River are material objects, constituting a place of value within its biome for both humans and nonhumans.
