Exploring How Keats Finds Beauty In Death

- There is no life without death, and no death without life. Life and death mutually define each other and without one, the other would have no meaning. Keats was an English poet very concerned with death and human mortality. His poems usually deal with his struggle to accept his own mortality and his attempt to flee from reality into a world of immortality. This poem, “To Autumn”, which Keats wrote after observing an autumn evening, is seemingly simplistic and purely descriptive. However, underneath the surface, Keats has finally begun to accept the difficult truth that death is inevitable....   [tags: Poetry Analysis, Poets, Poem]

The Poem ' The Holy Well '

- Just as Adam and Eve sinned and ate an apple from the Garden of Eden, Jesus told us that he would sacrifice his life for us someday, and it would be his gift to us. Even though our sin seems as a barrier to our lives, we know that through God’s sacrifice, we can be transcended and made new. In the anonymous folk ballad, ‘’The Holy Well”, the poet uses thirteen quatrains with an ABCB rhyme scheme and does not follow a specific underlying rhyme pattern, as it is sporadic.

We are told to leave our hometowns and seek our fortunes where is grass is greener. Homegrown innocence is often outmatched by urban competition.

In the poem ‘Tyger’, William Blake tries to divulge the creation of adversity by asking a series of blatant questions “What immortal hand or eye… frame thy fearful symmetry?” In addition to this, the origin of suffering is again interrogated by William Blake in his poem ‘Poison Tree’, as he explores how unaddressed, cultivated “wrath” can lead to destructive behavior which results in b...   [tags: poetry analysis, human suffering]
