The Existence of Absence in Keats' "On Seeing the Elgin Marbles for the First Time"

However, there is another, more subtle tension between what is in existence, and what is not, an absence which paradoxically manifests as a form of existence in itself. The presence of this conflict within the sonnet shows Keats's self-coined Negative Capability, the ability to be in "uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason" (Keats 863)...   [tags: Literary Analysis ]
