  1. 1. John Keats (1795-1821) <br />Synaesthetic Imageries in John Keats<br />M.A.(Sem)2<br />Dept of English<br />R.No.-10<br />By <br />Kinjal<br />
  2. 2. When HE ELECTS TO DEAL WITH ideas, he chooses such human things as love, sorrow,life,beauty,and,presents them in concrete shape by use of five senses.Matthew arnold -”no one can question the eminency, in keats’s poetry,of the qualtiy of sensuousness.<br />Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced.<br />When HE ELECTS TO DEAL WITH ideas, he chooses such human things as love, sorrow,life,beauty,and,presents them in concrete shape by use of five senses.Matthew arnold -”no one can question the eminency, in keats’s poetry,of the qualtiy of sensuousness.<br />Five senses:-<br />The sense of Sight<br />The sense of Hearing<br />The sense of Smell<br />The Sense of taste<br />The sense of Touch<br />
  3. 3. The sense of sight:-Keats finds beauty everywhere and in every object.He sees beautiful objects and presents them in such a way that aword Picture emerges before our mind’s eye.Example:-There was an awful rainbow once in heaven:We know her woof,her texture;she is givenIn the dull catalogue of common things.(“Lamia”)Ode to a Nightingale Ode to Autumn The Eve of st. Agnes<br />My imagination is a monastery and I am its monk. <br />Much have I traveled in the realms of gold, and many goodly states and kingdoms seen. <br />
  4. 4. The Sense of Touch:-Keats presents soft,delicate and delightful objects of nature, and art.The Grecian Urn:- piper,trees,trodden grass.A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness. (Endymion)<br />'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,' - that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.<br />
  5. 5. The sense of Hearing:-Ode to a Nightingale –with its mighty magic and music.Example:-The voice I hear this passing night was heardIn ancient days by emperor and clown:Perhaps the self-same song that found a pathThrough the sad heart of Ruth,……Odes on a Grecian urnHeard melodies are sweet but those unheardAre sweeter; therefofe,ye soft pipes, play on;Not to the sensual car,but endeared,pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone.TheEve of st.Agnes:-Provides a feast of rich,musical food to his readers.<br />
  6. 6. The Sense of Smell:-Keats’s olfactory sensation is great.He has a queer power to smell the sweetness of fragrance coming from various flowers and other objects.Ode to a Nightingale:-I cannot see what flowers are at my feet,Nor what soft incense hangs upon the boughs,But,in embalned darkness,guess each sweet;Wrere with the seasonable month endows…….The sense of taste:-Keats’s sense of taste was extraordinarily,From time to time he presents tasty tasty before usEndymion :- arich feast is prepared for the sheperd prince.Lamia:- banquet room is simbol of taste and flavour.The Eve of st. Anges:-rich fruits<br />
  7. 7. Why is imagination important when reading and understanding poetry by Keats?<br /> Strong imagery is the basis of structure in many poems. Literal andmetaphorical imagery words aid the reader with interpreting the mainideal of the poem.<br />Keats wrote, “I think him(keats) the gret poet he is only when the senses capture him , when he finds truth in beauty,that is to say, when he dose not trouble to find truth at all.”<br />Special thanks to Guide Jay sir<br />
