I made a garland for her Oh what can ail thee, knight-at-arms, Alone and palely loitering?

Selected Poems

I made a garland for her head, And bracelets too, and fragrant zone; She looked at me as she did love, And made sweet moan. I set her on my pacing steed, And nothing else saw all day long, For sidelong would she bend, and sing A faery's song. She found me roots of relish sweet, And honey wild, and manna-dew, And sure in language strange she said - 'I love thee true'. She took me to her elfin grot, And there she wept and sighed full sore, And there I shut her wild wild eyes With kisses four.

And there she lulled me asleep And there I dreamed - Ah! And this is why I sojourn here Alone and palely loitering, Though the sedge is withered from the lake, And no birds sing. Haunting poetry. I'm in love with Keats. The film about him Bright Star was very adorable and touching as well.

In my companion essay to the film, I argued that that ode has a most unpromising start: Keats is high "or emptied some dull opiate to the drains" and wants a drink "Oh for a draught of vintage I said, Why would we teach such behavior in a High School or community college? Helen Vendler did not like my argument, which I take as a compliment.

I just found on my shelf Keats's parody of Wordsworth! Must have missed it when I read through MacDonald's Parodies in Aug 17, Conor Walsh rated it it was amazing Shelves: poetry. Every morning I would wake at 7am just to read this work of genius. Keats was the Romantic poet who cared most about art and beauty. He didn't allow himself to get mixed up in religion and politics. But in quiet ways, he did comment on political, religious, aesthetic, and sexual beliefs, sometimes in ways that were less traditional than his poetic style.

Above all, he was supremely conscious of beauty in the world, as well as the world's suffering. His page poem 'Endymion: A Poetic Romance' would have to be a favorite. I am certainly not one to judge poetic writings but this really stuck me down with the upmost awe. To quote the great man himself WHAT is more gentle than a wind in summer?

What is more soothing than the pretty hummer That stays one moment in an open flower, And buzzes cheerily from bower to bower? More healthful than the leafiness of dales? More secret than a nest of nightingales? More full of visions than a high romance? What, but thee Sleep? Soft closer of our eyes!

Low murmurer of tender lullabies! Light hoverer around our happy pillows! Wreather of poppy buds, and weeping willows! Most happy listener! I love a youth of Corinth — O the bliss!

It's really only ish pages if you don't count the note and appendix and intros. I still find it amazing Keats wrote all these poems before he was Sadly, he died too young, but I'd imagine we'd have more poems if he lived longer. Only thing I'll say about this edition is it's not as well set up as Penguins other poetry books.

It was hard to tell looking at he index which poem was long and which one was short. Usually they capitalize all the letters This book contains all of John Keats poems. Usually they capitalize all the letters to a long poem. Mar 05, Laura rated it it was amazing Shelves: 5-star-club , favorite-books. Ah Keats, truest literary love of my life. At least once or twice a year I feel the need to get lost in this book for a little while, and it always feels like having tea and a deep, tearful discussion with a dear friend.

It also takes me back to my wonderful memories of studying in England, and all the time I spent belatedly stalking Keats walking along the path in Winchester where he composed "To Autumn," visiting his home in Hampstead, reading rare biographies in gorgeous old libraries, etc.

I love his words-they resonate with me in a way no other poet and few people in general ever have. What should I call you?

There is not really much I can say. If I began to talk about these poems, I'd write a novel. Simply amazing, genius, excellent, superb Your poems have been my safe haven for the last six months now, and I can safely say you have made me fall in love with both life and death in the best ways possible. Thank you very much. Jul 11, Hirdesh rated it it was amazing. Sep 27, Lady Jane rated it it was amazing. John Keats Posthumous fame has to be one of the saddest things for an artist, especially for John Keats, whose situation never really got any happier.

The poor lad died at the age of 29 after struggling with tuberculosis for years. As if this were not bad enough, critics of his time were very harsh on him Were not the same claims made about William Shakespeare? John Keats' poetry was much more morbid than his fellow Romantic and poet laureate William Wordsworth. Keats' poetry was nevertheless beautiful and focused on the power of imagination, whereas Wordsworth's poetry emphasized more on the deification of nature and the innocence of childhood.

That happiness and sense of bliss that permeates his poetry greatly appealed to me. My admiration for him reached its peak when I was about 19, then slowly it waned. Perhaps it is partly due to cynicism, and partly to have read other more critical writers like William Blake Such characteristics are typical of Romantic Poetry, and in my opinion, John Keats is the best one of the Romantics when it comes to conveying such things.

That is too bad Keats did not achieve his lifelong dream of becoming a famous writer. If only he knew what my generation knows now! If only he knew his works are part of the literary canon and have become basic required reading for English majors!

View 1 comment. The fact that John Keats died young had swayed my rating towards leniency.

I've read the harsh reviews here, and I must admit that there is a grain of truth in some of them. As for the very positive reviews here, I fear that most of them have deviated from context and have been therefore biased with a parroting tone of extravagance. Keats was neither a lousy poet nor was he an excellent one, he had some remarkable and brilliant punchlines, particularly in his sonnets and odes, and yet he lacked The fact that John Keats died young had swayed my rating towards leniency. Keats was neither a lousy poet nor was he an excellent one, he had some remarkable and brilliant punchlines, particularly in his sonnets and odes, and yet he lacked message.

Moreover, most of all he lacked originality. Therefore, with all due respect, in fairness, Keats cannot be regarded as one of England's most prominent poets.
