High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In 1819, John Keats composed six odes in a short period of time that have become some of his most famous poems. They are united and ordered as a set by various critics to form a greater truth, each depending on the original order. The first five poems were written during the spring, "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode on Indolence," "Ode on Melancholy," "Ode to a Nightingale," and "Ode to Psyche," and "To Autumn" was composed in autumn. Literary critics have responded positively to Keats poems with them being considered among his greatest work. "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode to a Nightingale" and "To Autumn" have been singled out as being the best among the odes. As a whole, the odes represent Keats's attempt to create a new type of short lyrical poem, which influenced later generations.

Revolutionary Romanticism

She uncovers, in the texts of the odes, Keats's progressive, humanist and implicitly revolutionary stance and thereby aligns him convincingly with Blake and Shelley as one of the most significant poets of English Romanticism.

Is the poetry of John Keats relevant for us today? In "Revolutionary Romanticism: Examining the Odes of John Keats," Jenny Farrell uncovers core meanings in Keats's poetry that illuminate its contemporary significance. A detailed reading of "Ode to Psyche," "Ode to a Nightingale," "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode on Melancholy" and "To Autumn" presents the poet on his own terms: beauty as the vision of what life could and should be, rooted in actuality but suppressed by society's inhumanity. Thomas Metscher, former professor of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics at the University of Bremen: "The main purpose of literary criticism is the historically contextualized close reading of texts. Such analysis equips readers with the understanding necessary to accessing a text and its author. Jenny Farrell does this expertly here, as in her previous book on Shakespeare's Tragedies. She uncovers, in the texts of the odes, Keats's progressive, humanist and implicitly revolutionary stance and thereby aligns him convincingly with Blake and Shelley as one of the most significant poets of English Romanticism. Farrell combines analytical clarity with emotional empathy, clearing a path into the odes for today's reader, and uncovering the beauty, immediacy and utmost contemporary relevance of 200-year-old texts."

This carefully crafted ebook: "John Keats: Ode to a Nightingale (Unabridged)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. "Ode to a Nightingale" is either the garden of the Spaniards Inn, Hampstead, London, or, according to Keats' friend Charles Armitage Brown, under a plum tree in the garden of Keats House, also in Hampstead. According to Brown, a nightingale had built its nest near his home in the spring of 1819. Inspired by the bird's song, Keats composed the poem in one day. It soon became one of his 1819 odes and was first published in Annals of the Fine Arts the following July. "Ode to a Nightingale" is a personal poem that describes Keats's journey into the state of Negative Capability. The tone of the poem rejects the optimistic pursuit of pleasure found within Keats's earlier poems and explores the themes of nature, transience and mortality, the latter being particularly personal to Keats. The nightingale described within the poem experiences a type of death but does not actually die. Instead, the songbird is capable of living through its song, which is a fate that humans cannot expect. John Keats (1795-1821) was an English Romantic poet. The poetry of Keats is characterized by sensual imagery, most notably in the series of odes. Today his poems and letters are some of the most popular and most analyzed in English literature.

Arguably the greatest of all the English Romantic poets, John Keats left behind him an astonishingly large body of work almost as remarkable for its maturity as for its beauty. Whether in longer narrative works like 'The Eve of St Agnes', or in such sonnets as 'On First Looking Into Chapman's Homer', or in magnificent odes like those 'To a Nightingale' and 'To Autumn', his verse resonates with lyricism and with sensuous imagery, however melancholy his tone or his subject. His finest poems are among the greatest in the language; almost all of them strike a chord in the heart of even the most jaded reader. This compact selection includes many of Keats's greatest shorter poems, as well as extracts from his longer works.

This book considers Keats’s major poems as exercises in Romantic historicism. The poetry’s rich allusiveness represents Keats’s effort to reclaim the British canon for Cockney revisionism, and reveals Keats characteristically invoking the past to define his contemporary cultural politics. The book begins by discussing Keats’s Cockney traditionalism in its Regency context and then proceeds through the poet’s career in chronological order. There are chapters on history and vocation in the poet’s first volume, the failed idealism of 'Endymion', gender and audience in the Medieval Romances, the 'Ode on a Grecian Urn' in historical context, secularism and consolation in the other great Odes, and then the two 'Hyperion' fragments, in which history ramifies beyond poetic method to become the explicit subject of inquiry. The result is a stimulating reassessment of Keats’s intellectual development and most admired poems.
