    Technology are the answer to human suffering, and that in time we will find the key that will open the door to happiness for all. Science and Technology have thus become the religion of the 20th century. Consequently, we find that we are in the autumn of our civilization, our granaries are filled to capacity, and yet the leaves, of the trees of life are falling. Man has not succeeded in finding "happiness", for as Marcuse says, "The people recognize themselves in their commodities; they find

    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.

    To Autumn by John Keates - Critical Analysis John Keats once said about Lord Byron “He describes what he sees - I describe what I imagine, mine is the hardest task” To Autumn is evidence of his way of thinking, as the poem is a vivid, lyrical portrayal of the English autumn, as he imagined it. The poem celebrates autumn as a season of abundance, a season of reflection, a season of preparation for the winter, and a season worthy of admiration with comparison to what romantic poetry often focuses

    not the same, are they? What separates autumn from spring? Is it a song... the day? Maybe it is who makes up that day and who initiates that song. In the poem "To Autumn," by John Keats, imagery and personification are manipulated to symbolize the unique autumn day. Keats uses his poem to compare and contrast the unmistakable events that ensue during the days of autumn to eventful days of the other seasons.  Within the first stanza Keats personifies autumn to "conspire" with the sun on how to "load

    Ode to a Nightingale, Ode on a Grecian Urn, and Ode to Autumn The casual reader of John Keats' poetry would most certainly be impressed by the exquisite and abundant detail of it's verse, the perpetual freshness of it's phrase and the extraordinarily rich sensory images scattered throughout it's lines. But, without a deeper, more intense reading of his poems as mere parts of a larger whole, the reader may miss specific themes and ideals which are not as readily apparent as are the obvious stylistic

    The Woods in Autumn It is not true that the close of a life which ends in a natural fashion- --life which is permitted to put on the display of death and to go out in glory- --inclines the mind to rest.  It is not true of a day ending nor the passing of the year, nor of the fall of leaves.  Whatever permanent, uneasy question is native to men, comes forward most insistent and most loud at such times.  There are still places where one can feel and describe the spirit of the falling of leaves
