Percy Bysshe Shelley: view of nature
Read the text below and find the six mistakes in it.

Shelley's nature, like Wordsworth's, is not the real world, but a beautiful blanket hiding the momentary truth of the divine spirit. Nature suggests events to him, such as the wind and the clouds, and symbols for the creation of his cosmic schemes. Nature is also a shelter from the disappointment and justice of the ordinary world, the expression of man's dreams and hopes for a better future.
