Nāzik al-Malā'ika's early collections of poetry are characterised by a love of nature. Like many English Romantic poets, she viewed the countryside as symbolic of innocence and beauty, while contrasting the purity and splendour of nature with the oppressiveness and artificiality of the city. The idea of nature as a moral guide often appears in her poetry; man can learn lessons of love, morality and forgiveness from nature more easily than from his fellow man or from books. Yet, she, at times, rejected an idealised picture of nature.
