Abstract

The study investigated the human dignity in ode to intimations of immortality. This dignity is based on the philosophical values which are grounded to ‘human dignity’. The dignity distinguishes one person to another person. Wordsworth talked about the remembrance of childhood, beauty of heaven on earth grown up and loosens man’s contact to nature in adult age. The poet argued about the serenity of old age. The theoretical Framework is Thomas Hobbes’ Concept of Dignity and Honor in Laviathan. The faculties of mind and body are natural. It is wit, art and power. The instrumental faculties are acquired as friends, richness and repute. When we give value to someone it is honor and dignity. The recommendations of study are natural power, eloquence, liberality, power of wealth and employment.
