Abstract: The great Chinese poet Tao Yuanming and the Western poet Wordsworth are poets of two different periods in China and the West, but they share the same yearning: to return to nature and to return to the essence. In this paper, we analyze the intertextuality of their poems in terms of theme and imagery, and investigate the causes of their intertextuality. This typical intertextuality provides a reference for the exchange between Chinese and Western cultures.
