Wagner, Richard (1813 - 1883): Although Wagner's opinions and writings continue to provoke rage and disgust, he stands as one of the great creative forces of the 19th century. His music (particularly "Das Ring der Nibelungen") contains examples of Nature-inspired writing that are both powerful and sublimely beautiful.
