The Richness of Old Age: a New Critical Reading of "to Autumn" - "Where are the songs of Spring. Ay, where are they. Think not of them, thou hast thy music too." So often, people look back upon their youth and wish that they still had it before them. Our natural tendency is to fear old age, to see it as the precursor to death, rather than a time of life, desirable in its own right. However, in John Keats' poem, To Autumn, he urges us not to take this view, but to see old age as a beautiful and enviable state of life, rather than something to be feared. First of all, it must be established that Keats is even speaking about old age....   [tags: Poetry] 1026 words

If someone said they could make a picture of a mining town or of the route to the West without a pencil or paint people would have laughed at them. Laughing would have been appropriate because photography didn't come into being until 1839.

Yet, "religious persecution was only one of the influences which shaped the course and formed the character of the Ulster Scots."
