John Keats' Fear That He Might Cease to Be

- During his last years, Keats ponders about what it would mean to die. He translates this into fears of what he hasn’t yet accomplished and would like to have time to do.

The heading, “When I have fears that I may cease to be” demonstrates Keats’ belief, or rather, lack of belief in the idea of an afterlife. In the first quatrain of the poem Keats describes his fertile imagination, yearning to have “glean’d my teeming brain” before it is too late, the image of abundance is instilled with the words “high- piled” and “rich.” The paradox of a fi...   [tags: John Keats, poetry,]

Climate Change : A Forest Break Or Disturbance

- Recently, Dr. Stefan Schnitzer discovered an increase in liana thickets throughout a Panama rainforest (New York Times, 2011).
