    Reading Keats gets me high like reading Oppen, Milton, Kroetsch, and Donne has gotten me high. Maybe some Frank O'Hara gets me that high, too. I'm obviously not suggesting that these poets' poetry has much in common, except that they all get me high. I'm just saying the poetry gets me higher than any substance I know of. Keats is hands down the finest of the Romantic poets, in my estimation. Wordsworth can go fuck a daffodil, Shelley eat a vegetable. There's other poetry I like.

I'm obviously not suggesting that these poets' poetry has much in common, except that they all get me high. I'm just saying the poetry gets me higher than any substance I know of. Keats is hands down the finest of the Romantic poets, in my estimation. Wordsworth can go fuck a daffodil, Shelley eat a vegetable. There's other poetry I like. But it barely warrants a mention alongside Keats and the others I've mentioned. The pleasures of prose fiction and its worth have been what I've spent most of my adult life invested in. But on rare occasions I begin so understand why so many persons exist for whom poetry is the real portal to the gut-level true and the ineffably beauteous. I ought to note that one doesn't "finish" reading a book like this one. But one must occasionally cease to open it.

    It feels a little weird giving a star rating to Johnny motherfucking Keats so my rating is more for the Norton Critical Edition I own, which lives up to the reputation of other Norton Critical editions. In addition to poetry this has a huge sampling of prose and epistolary, including letters to his beloved Fanny Brawne, which may interest those of you who saw the Keats biopic Bright Star. Of course, it has some essays as well that will shed some light on the world of Keats and his milieu, I’ve o It feels a little weird giving a star rating to Johnny motherfucking Keats so my rating is more for the Norton Critical Edition I own, which lives up to the reputation of other Norton Critical editions.

Of course, it has some essays as well that will shed some light on the world of Keats and his milieu, I’ve on read a couple but they were pretty comprehensive. If you like Keats, it’s a no brained unless you’re would be irritated to have a bunch of non poetry content in your poetry collection (you Philistine)

    C’était sympathique. On retrouve les grandes thématiques liées au romantisme et à l’amour. J’ai préféré la seconde moitié du recueil, qui m’a particulièrement plus plu. Mon poème préféré est celui d’Isabelle et de son basilic. En définitive une lecture agréable mais sans plus.

    Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St. Agnes, and Other Poems (1820): This is Keats’ last book. It contains what many people consider his finest work including his odes (Autumn, Grecian Urn, Nightingale). Keats is not a figurative poet, like Shakespeare, but he is certainly a mellifluous poet, an articulate poet. Like Tennyson, he voice is pure music. His poetry has an easy quality but it belies with unexpected rimes and rhythms. Has anyone come up with a more beautiful way to say, “Meanwhile”? “Just at Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St. Agnes, and Other Poems (1820): This is Keats’ last book.

Has anyone come up with a more beautiful way to say, “Meanwhile”? “Just at the self-same beat of Time’s wide wings” (Hyperion, Book II) For the most part, the narrative poems in the title were not very compelling. I’m not interested in these kinds of gothic, quasi-romantic tales. Hyperion is very good, even though it draws very heavily on Milton’s Paradise Lost. (Didn’t Virgil’s Aeneid draw heavily from the Iliad and Odyssey?) It has a beautiful, tragic cadence. I also read The Fall of Hyperion, but it was not nearly as good as Hyperion.

    Where's the Poet? show him! show him, Muses nine! that I may know him. 'Tis the man who with a man Is an equal, be he King, Or poorest of the beggar-clan Or any other wonderous thing A man may be 'twixt ape and Plato; 'Tis the man who with a bird, Wren or Eagle, finds his way to All its instincts; he hath heard The Lion's roaring, and can tell What his horny throat expresseth, And to him the Tiger's yell Come articulate and presseth Or his ear like mother-tongue.

    Mind-blowing and transformative. No words can capture it. A unique organization of poems and letters (extensive array of the letters to friends, family and Fanny Brawne). If only to read one poem, "Ode To A Nightingale" all worth it. Go to my website to read and hear a splendid reading from actor Ben Whishaw. One of those books, one of those authors that touch and transform you in a way no other can. Mind-blowing and transformative. No words can capture it.

    Initially purchased to aid a university module I find myself going back to this time and time again. Contains a substantial amount of Keats's work and expresses development from his earlier poetry to his more mature canonical Odes. Overall, a very interesting and useful collection.

    as soon as amazon finds my copy of this book i am going to immerse (had to use a literary word, sorry) myself back into the world of Romantic poetry. Keats has written some of the bestest most amazingest poems, like, ever.

    This is an on-going project to remember my long lost French. It is still so intriguing to me and challenging to try and remember the beautiful language it is and to have to look up words. But that is how you learn, right? Love it!

    Non présence des textes originaux => perte de la musicalité poétique.

    Keats is an amazing poet, and this is an amazing collection of his work, complete with some amazing critical essays. Added bonus: it was compiled and edited by a professor at CU.
