Nice and attractive poems
This poet has forver changed my life. No one else can write as he did. He is the Tom Bombadil of poetry. He is one of a kind. Every single line I read I can't help but shed a tear, not from sadness, but from amazement. I aspire to write poetry as Keats did. This sounds weird but i feel as if Keats will sometimes talk through me. A teacher once told me Listen class this is just a poem, and without hesitation Keats spoke through me and said it is never just a poem. -GraysonGossBoss

How beautiful of John Keats to say that love is his religion. I did not quite, at a cursory glance, understand his poem, A Draught of Sunshine, but it seems like it has a lot to offer. He values soul as well as intelligence and that is indeed a wonderful quality and I must analyze his and Lord Byron's poems to see if what he has said is actually true, that is he imagined while Byron merely saw. -Gayathri B.

Keats' treatment of themes of Beauty and Mutability in the poems, Ode To A Nightingale and Ode To Autumn: Among the English romantics Keats had be a connoisseur of arts and aesthetic experience. Wordsworth was the high priest of natural beauty, Coleridge of supernatural beauty, Shelley of intellectual beauty, Byron of feminine beauty and Keats of aesthetic beauty. Keatsian odes, Horatian in form with uniformity of stanzas are serious in tone, dignified in metrical structure and grand in style. He completed six odes and left one incomplete. He recaptures the ancient Greek world of imagination and art in relation to his romantic imagination and pursuit of sensuous beauty of nature. Classicism and romanticism are perfectly blended In theme and style. This is well exhibited in Ode to a Nightingale, Ode on a Grecian Urn and Ode to Autumn. Like all other members of the romantic generation, Keats firmly believed in the law of transitoriness or the law of Mutability that governs this mundane earth. The Ode to a Nightingale testifies Keats' negative capability as he is not empowered to reach the paradise world of the New Nightingale bereft of wings. When the melody of the so-called immortal bird enchants his soul, he falls into a trance or drowsy numbness. The effect is thought to be similar to that of the intoxicating impact of opium, hemlock and vintage. But the grave and ultimate truth of Mutability compels Keats to be morose. The weariness, the fever and the fret of this mundane world is beyond control. A youth must grow pale and spectre thin only to proceed towards death. The old age brings about grey hairs as marks senility. All the dwellers of this earth must be obedient to this universal law. People become morbid when the sit together and discuss the cause of misery and tragedy. Their eyes are leaden with despairs. Even the beautiful woman can not maintain and preserve her lustrous eyes. Feminine beauty should also obey the law of Mutability. It will also become dwindled, peak and pine. So the poet is absolutely confirmed that the earthly beauty is eminently transitory. Again to escape the world of sordid reality and thorny problems of life, Keats wants to seek a shelter in the paradisal world of Nightingale. But here is a problem. Keats can not tastes the forbidden knowledge of joy and delight, being denied the opportunity of flight. A bird can fly but a poet can not. Herein lies the essence of negative capability. But the romantic poet wishes to go there on the viewless wings of poesy and charioted by Bacchus and his pards. He has no hesitation to court death this night as he is supremely satisfied by the melody of the Nightingale. He had been half in love with easeful Death. Tuberculosis has eaten into his vitality and therefore he should have no complain about such a painless death. The bird, the poet thinks, was not born for death, being an immortal bird. One particular bird may die but the species of the bird will continue to sing the selfsame song. The same song has passed through the hearts of emperor, clown, sad nostalgic Ruth (a tragic woman in the Bible) and magician who produced almost similar effect. The disyllabic word, forlorn sounds like the ringing of a bell and it compels him to return to the world of everyday reality. The bird being gone, it's melody becomes inaudible. Keats is in a state of oscillation and can not pursue whether he had been awake or asleep, enjoying a reverie. Ode to Autumn celebrates the festive season of natural abundance and fruitfulness. Autumn 'conspires' with the maturing sun to yield a rich harvest in the form of apples and honey. Every fruit and vegetable is ripe to the core. The beehives are overflowing with abundant honey. Keats depicts different personas of Autumn in the second stanza. She is looked upon as a rustic woman, a harvester, reaper, gleaner and lastly the cider maker. The reference to 'hook' and 'cyder press' carries a sad note as it signifies the impact of machine on nature due to industrial revolution. In the concluding stanza Keats consoles the Autumnal season by ascribing five sources of music. The wilful choir of the small gnats, loud bleating of the full grown lambs, singing of the hedge crickets, whistling melody of the Robin red breast and the twittering of the swallow are five sources of autumnal beauty. While in Ode to a Nightingale Keats is in an aesthetic mood, he is serene and tranquil in Ode to Autumn. But Keats is very much conscious of natural beauty everywhere. Thus he knows it for certain that earthly beauty or feminine beauty is momentary or transitory obeying the law of Mutability. In every respect Ode on a Grecian Urn represents Keats' concept of Aesthetic Beauty and Truth at its best.
