    Shelley and Keats Autumnal Theme in English Romantic Poetry: Shelley^Òs "Ode to the West Wind" and Keats^Òs "To Autumn."

    Keats' To Autumn

    • 1813 Words

    • 3 Works Cited

    John Keats was an English romantic poet in the early 1800s. One of his best works “To Autumn” is beautiful and lyrical, the words creating an entire scene painting a picture in our minds of great imagery through words that create color, tone, and environment. The poem means much more than just the description of the season. While some critics have considered it a static poem, there are others who disagree with that assessment. The poem discusses time and the seasonal nature of life. The poem can

    Keats and Ekphrasis

    • 1456 Words
    • 3 Pages

    In John Keats’, “Ode on a Grecian Urn”, there is an noticable emphasis on the ambiguity of this Ode when compared to the others Keats wrote at that time. “What are we to make of the tonal perplexity with which Ode on a Grecian Urn… begins…- since the performance of ekphrasis is supposed to exude a speaker’s confidence for the task?” (Kelley 172) Here, Theresa M. Kelley also debates, at first, the truth of the sonnet. In the Ode, the Urn is the object to visualize and the speaker is to absorb the

    Analysis of Keats' To Autumn

    • 791 Words

    Analysis of Keats' To Autumn John Keats' poem To Autumn is essentially an ode to Autumn and the change of seasons. He was apparently inspired by observing nature; his detailed description of natural occurrences has a pleasant appeal to the readers' senses.  Keats also alludes to a certain unpleasantness connected to Autumn, and links it to a time of death.  However, Keats' association between stages of Autumn and the process of dying does not take away from the "ode" effect of the poem.

    The Poetry of Wordsworth and Keats John Locke (1632-1704) sparked the "Age of Reason" by teaching that all true knowledge must be empirically verified.  Empiricism taught that "a statement is meaningful only if it can be verified empirically (Sproul 103)."   Thus any statements about metaphysical entities (e.g. God, Unicorns, Love, and Beauty) would be meaningless terms because they cannot be proven by the scientific method.  In revolt,  Rousseau (1712-1778)  cried: "Let us return to nature" (Schaeffer

    John Keats Speech The writer I have chosen to speak about is the romanticist John Keats. I chose this particular poet as I believe his ideas are the best expressed of the composers we have studied. I have looked at "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode on Melancholy" and "Ode to Autumn" and I think some important comparisons can be drawn from them. Each poem has been chosen because I think that the ideas conveyed in them are among the more significant in Keats's works. "Ode on a Grecian Urn" discuses
