An idea of sound is also achieved by the use of onomatopoeic words such as “tinkle of the nearest stream” and “whispering” (p143) this brings a sensuous aspect to the prose, something that Keats also manages to achieve in his Ode to Autumn.Ode to Autumn is similar to Jane Eyre in its depiction of autumn, however it is more a valedictory poem, a fond farewell to the season.Hamlet, described by Jacqueline Rose as “a flawed masterpiece” (Drakakis, p96), has the same notable sense of imagery and personification found in Ode to Autumn, and to a certain degree, Jane Eyre.(Keats, p197) He then reflects on the feelings of late autumn with its “winnowing wind” and “half-reaped furrow”, (p197) and ends with the remaining baroness in stanza three, ...

The English Pindaric ode, though it always developed a single, central theme, meanders unpredictably through a series of situations which expand and comment on the central theme.We see this quality even in the “Ode to Evening,” Collins’ most famous poem, which is, on the face of it, only a poem of pastoral, natural description in a typical eighteenth century mode.The English Horatian ode, on the other hand, goes directly to the point, is based on concise statement and plain diction, and uses a single, regular metrical stanzaic pattern.Certain parts of the “Ode to Fear,” for example, are actually allegories of the mind functioning under the influence of fear.But folklore and superstitition play a more organic part in some of Collins’ odes...

Crawford, A. W. Keats’s Ode to a Nightingale.Each poem analyzed and compared and contrasted in this paper has had an underlying theme of truth; that is, the speakers attempt to find out their own soul, their own personal truth in the realm of the supernatural while at times either forsaking the natural, or dwelling more in the natural in order to make the supernatural seem that much more tangible as is seen in Ode to Psyche.The same idea of negative capability, or mystery as was seen in Ode to Indolence with the hazy three figures, and the reader’s own ignorance on their identity is once again seen in Ode to a Grecian Urn.Thus, the element of the supernatural is combined with that of the natural, which was clearly defined in Ode to a Nig...

These imperatives contain Shelley’s lofty expectations for the dissemination of his words; however, when the actual path his words followed is studied, great disparity emerges between the ways in which Shelley envisioned his poem entering the world, and the way it actually reached an audience.Piecing together a publication and composition history is particularly befitting for Percy Bysshe Shelley’s “Ode to the West Wind,” for the theme of transmission of words and thoughts is interlaced conspicuously within the lines of the poem itself.Shelley’s notebooks and preserved manuscripts provide much information about the composition history behind ‘Ode to the West Wind.” In mid-October, 1819, Shelley walked along the river Arno, located near F...

Their poems greatly differ in language form and structure, especially between Wordsworth’s simple language and Keats’ traditionally embellished diction.Keats does not reflect much on his experience in Ode to a Nightingale, except only to wonder “was it a vision, or a waking dream?…Do I wake or sleep?” However, this last question lets the reader themselves reflect on the meaning of the nightingale (though throughout the poem the references to “easeful death” and “Darkling” make it obvious that the bird symbolises death.)He instead regards nature as a friend in suffering (in Ode to a Nightingale: “Now more than ever it seems rich to die…while thou art pouring thy soul abroad…”) and as a thing with its own magic (Ode to Autumn: “Where are t...

I feel that although both poems are effective in expressing how the parents want to protect their children, ‘A Parental Ode…’ is more effective due to the use of brackets.It is praiseful but the poet is praising God not the child, as she says ‘no friend I have like thee to trust.’ The poet pleads ‘preserve, O Lord, from storms and wrack,’ and trusts God as she ‘gives him thee.’ In lines 13-20 the poet begins to acknowledge that she may die before her son returns but she is calm and accepting as she says ‘Persuade my heart I shall him see for ever happefy’d with thee.’ The poem is personal, like ‘A Parental Ode…’ as it includes the name of her son, Samuel, and gives the idea that she is confessing all her worries to God.‘Upon my Son Samue...

Shelley and nature fit together in this ode to form an ominous venture of how wind can destroy and preserve many aspects of life.Shelley and Wordsworth’s love for nature was strong and they both tried their best to relay their feelings for nature to their audience.Nature comes out very strongly in Percy Bysshe Shelley’s “Ode to the West Wind” and William Wordsworth’s “The World is Too Much with Us.” Shelley and Wordsworth’s appreciation for nature was noticeable, powerful, and above all emotional.Shelley, seeing nature as a rescuer, even though it is capable of destruction of so much, still saw nature as saving him from sadness and the world that was evolving so rapidly around him.. Wordsworth fought for nature in all of his writings but...

From other poems- ‘ode to a nightingale’ or ‘ode on a Grecian urn’- we know that Keats has trouble with mortality and impermanence.It does however come across that he is trying to deny his passions even to himself.The ode is a simple, straight forward story of a man who spends a lazy summer day in a state of numbness and does not want his visions of love, ambition and poesy to disrupt his indolence.He banishes them back to the ‘dreamy urn’ and reduces them to ‘faint visions’.He commands the ‘phantoms’ to ‘vanish’ and ‘never more return’.

The poet expresses confusion.This contradiction is most evident in Ode to Autumn.The sadness and disillusionment give way to acceptance because of the realization that however one wishes on the contrary, all life on earth is not immortal, perfect or permanent.In the last line of the second stanza, for example, autumn is “watching the last oozings hour by hours” suggesting the approach of the end of day and life.The theme of Ode to a Nightingale is similar to the Grecian Urn in that both poems reflect on the relationship of the Ideal to Reality.

In “Ode to Autumn” he finally finds what he has been looking for, emotional fulfilment, Keats says “lives or dies”.This imagery performs a major functions in the two poems “Ode on a Grecian Urn” and “Ode to a Nightingale”; this is the combining of senses normally experienced as separate experiences.Many examples of this mainly appear in “Ode to a Nightingale”- for example “In some melodious plot of beechen green” (line 8/9) this combine sound “melodious” and also sight “beechen green”.In “Ode to a Nightingale” Keats writes “Do I wake or sleep?” (line 82) as well as “was it a vision or a waking death?” because he is searching for these emotions all he feels is that he can do is ask questions and this is because he has no answers for why h...

In this ode imagination reveals a new aspect of beauty.Keats at first is viewed as appreciating beauty in its concrete sense through his senses but later his concept of beauty became more intellectual.The life of a red rose is hardly five to 10 days and to is the physical beauty which seeps away with the passage of each day.In this noble sense beauty becomes one with truth and goodness.Secondly his concept of beauty was not limited, it was taken as whole with all its ugly and beautiful parts as he described in his “ode to Melancholy” He finds melancholy even in the sweetest things of life.

Cooper, J.J. Brewer’s Book of Myth and Legend.With the numerous amounts of symbols, imagery, and metaphors embedded into “Ode,” John Keats has created a very strong, enchanting poem.“Ode to a Nightingale” is essentially Keats’ quest for poetic inspiration and fulfillment.In his poem “Ode to a Nightingale,” John Keats uses powerful, distinct symbolism and imagery.However, the nightingale is definitely not the only item of symbolism in “Ode to a Nightingale.” In a short piece of art, Keats apparently has mastered using many different items, phrases, and brilliant, descriptive metaphorical text to symbolize something he yearns for.

It is less personal than the Nightingale ode, the word ‘I’ doesn’t appear in this poem.In ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’ a comparison is seen as being between ‘life (which is transient) and Art (which is permanent).Permanence exacts its price, the painted scene will outlast outlandish passion, the sorrowful heart and (like the image in ‘Ode to a Nightingale’) the fevers men die of.‘Ode to Melancholy’ is closely linked to ‘Ode to Nightingale’ and ‘On a Grecian Urn’ but this poem differs in tone, from the others.This ode, which significantly concludes the set, expresses a vision of those beauties so characteristic of art, visions, which are incapable of gaining their effect unless perceived as fleeting.

I should like her to ruin me…” Love and death are intertwined in “Isabella; or, the Pot of Basil,” “Bright Star,” “The Eve of St. Agnes,” and “La Belle Dame sans Merci.” The Fatal Woman (the woman whom it is destructive to love, like Salome, Lilith, and Cleopatra) appears in “La Belle Dame sans Merci” and “Lamia.” Identity is an issue in his view of the poet and for the dreamers in his odes (e.g., “Ode to a Nightingale”) and narrative poems.In “Ode to a Nightingale” and “Ode on a Grecian Urn,” Keats tries to free himself from the world of change by identifying with the nightingale, representing nature, or the urn, representing art.Richard H.

The structure Keats crafts along with his usage of figurative language allows for the overall theme of the poem to be presented; however, Keats usage of paradoxes implies a dual theme with several lines of his ode, which is the reason as to why there are several interpretations of an “Ode on a Grecian Urn.” The structure of the ode seems simple enough- five stanzas, ten lines each, and a precise iambic pentameter.However, many people believe that the final couplet is spoken from the speaker, addressing the urn as he learned from the encounter with the urn.Because of the dual interpretations the lines have, it can be said that Keats purposefully left it as ambiguous to correlate with the dual themes of the ode.For example, in the first st...
