Theme Of I Am And Ode To Autumn By John Clare
The poem I have chosen to discuss are, John Clare's "I am" and "Ode to Autumn." by John Keats. Both of these poems deal with the sublime and
express the concern of self–consciousness that poetry addressed during the romantic period. John Clare's "I am" is a refection upon ones last minutes
of breathing life, or rather a pondering of death. The poem is cleverly constructed through the structured use of complex poetic techniques in the
phonics and sense appealing aspects of the poem. Clare writes to manipulate the reader, not to show them his grief and despair from his point of
view, but instead, a point of view of which he would like them to see from. I chose this poem because the poem itself, almost becomes self–aware, as

Keats indulges himself in his personified version of autumn. This poem also deals with the theme of death and its inevitability. This was also a
common trait of Keats, as for him, these petite and gradual notions of death occurred daily and he recorded them and marvelled their lack of severity.
The images that Keats expresses of the cease of your loved ones hold, the engravings on a historical samovar, and the harvesting in August are of
course symbols of death, but are also actually deathly occurrences if we really think about it. This introduces the underlying threat under al the fruitful

Analysis Of Ode To Nightingale
The following findings were carried out after analysing the data in the light of given objectives:
First starting from "Ode to Nightingale" which is a Keats ode influenced by Greek mythology, I found that Nightingale is a symbol of beauty,
immortality and freedom from the depressing and tiresome world. In Greek and Roman myths, Nightingale refers to Philomela. Philomela in Greek
mythology is a figure symbol used in literary and artistry works. She is identified as the daughter of king of Athens. According to Greek mythology
she was raped and after she took back her revenge she transformed into Nightingale.

In the same line I also found other ancient references. 'Beetle' was regarded as a sacred figure of resurrection and 'Scarabs' were regarded with
representation of new life.
"Ode to Autumn" is also loaded with the elements of Greeks. In ode to Autumn, Keats personifies nature. In this case, Autumn is a personification of
human shape sometimes works as gleaner and some other times as a reaper etc. Keats also provided some symbols of ancient Greek deities such as
'Ceres', 'Demeter' (goddess) and 'Pan' (demi–god of wilds).
I found Keats all poems full with the themes of beauty, art and nature which were the characteristics loved by Ancient Greeks. In this ode, metaphors
which personifies the beauty of a season are also used such as 'mellow', 'rich' and 'splendid' in the shades of Autumn scattered throughout the poem

John Keats 's Poem Analysis
Underlying Methods of Communication in Keats' "To Autumn" In "To Autumn," a poem by John Keats, we see a multi
–leveled examination of
mortality concealed within a seemingly simple ode to the fall season. The poem opens with an overwhelming appeal to the senses. Anyone familiar
with the common motifs of Autumn will identify heavily with the first stanza, for Autumn is a time of ripening pumpkins and relaxed musings. The
second stanza has a tone reminiscent of the feeling that accompanies the end of a hard day's work. However, as the second part of this poem ends,
the reader feels a dull pang of some unidentified negative emotion. This emotion is similar to the guilt of relaxed, yet hardworking men who are too
proud to be lazy, even for a moment. The ending stanza of the poem arrives and passes like the end of Autumn, swiftly (Keats 763–764). The speaker
in the poem seems to be scrambling to appreciate the wonders of Autumn before the swift, bitter end. The progression of ideas, imagery, and tone are
highly reminiscent to the thoughts of a man who, at the end of his life, is trying to find meaning and beauty in his life as he approaches his swift, bitter
end. The poignancy of this poem is found in the distinct levels by which Keats communicates emotions. In the progression of Keats' "To Autumn,"
there are three basic levels of understanding: the outright evolution of ideas seen in the initial reading, the contradictory tone changes, and the subtle

Similarities Between Wordsworth And Romanticism
Romanticism The Industrial Revolution in England brought major changes to British lifestyle. The working classes experienced polluted conditions
both in factories and at home. Technological advances contributed to a less agriculturally dependent economy. The Enlightenment also reinforced
rational thinking, rather than imagination. The increasingly industrial society in England led Romantic writers to emphasize the beauty of the natural
world because they questioned both the advancements of industry and the virtue of human rationalism (Kagan 416–418). British Romantics William
Wordsworth and John Keats both embrace the uplifting and inspiring qualities of the natural world in many of their poems. However, while
Wordsworth alludes to a... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Again, he creates an unearthly and spiritual mood to emphasize nature as a dreamlike domain. By doing so, he recognizes the calming qualities of the
natural world, and so takes time to recollect his experience with the daffodils. In addition to incorporating a transcendental register of diction,
Wordsworth uses personification to develop the spiritual quality of nature. Wordsworth personifies the daffodils and compares them to spiritual
entities to create an ethereal mood in his poem, giving the flowers a mythical quality. He incorporates mythopoesis, which is the making of myths
("Mythopoesis"). The daffodils are described as "a crowd, / A host, of golden Daffodils" (Wordsworth 3
–4). In literature, angels are referred to as the
heavenly host ("Angel Wings Angels"). Wordsworth makes this connection to portray the daffodils as mythical and angelic. Nature is personified as a
spiritual being, which makes it seem otherworldly, and thus Wordsworth presents the natural world as a dreamlike entity that he can always look back
on for serenity. Also, he describes the daffodils "Tossing their heads in a sprightly dance" (12). The term sprightly derives from the word sprite,
meaning a fairy–like creature ("Sprite"). Again, Wordsworth compares the daffodils to a mythical being, making nature spiritual. He constantly

Lord Of The West Wind, By Percy Shelley
Nature is a source of inspiration for each poet from which they determine imagery, emphasizing its symbolic meaning and part as a powerful force in
human life. Percy Shelley's "Ode to the West Wind" and John Keats' "To Autumn" are fixated on nature. Shelley addresses nature in majority of his
poems climatically, according to his spontaneous and momentary response, while Keats turns to contemplation due to his personal suffering. Both
poets are impacted by the seasonal process in nature which ushers them into the temperament of transition and aging. However, both of them
differently perceive the same natural manifestations. In Percy Shelley's "Ode to the West Wind" considers the subject of cyclic regeneration through
the depiction of nature. Shelley watches the destructive changes in nature created by the autumnal wind with a desire for the following spring and
revival. In the seasonal process he sees a typical model for conceivable revolutionary changes both in his own life and in the current social and political
structure of his nation. The usage of nature demonstrates Shelley's gratefulness towards beauty and the natural world. His "Ode to the West Wind"
fundamentally engages the dynamic brilliant power of the west wind to issue him that vitality which has the capacity to change the world. He describes
how powerful the wind is and communicates his poem in a shrewd method that paints readers a picture of how great and amazing the wind can be.

The Beauty And Richness Of Autumn By John Keats
At one time or another, every person has experienced the beauty of summer. In this time of the year, nature is full of life, the weather is at its finest,
and the paramount joys of life can be experienced to their fullest. Then the fall comes, the trees turn lovely shades of red and yellow, and the wind
offers a nice chill breeze for relief. Unfortunately, seasons change and the beauty that people once experienced vanishes. People focusing only on the
material and petty aspects of life, rather than the beauty around them, will let life pass them, missing out on the true wonders of the world. In his poem
"To Autumn," John Keats utilizes imagery to express the importance of indulging in the beauties of nature, while alive, because humans are mortal
beings bound by the limits of time.
Throughout the beginning of the poem, Keats touches on the beauty and richness of autumn. He accomplishes this by introducing distinct fall imagery.
For example, Keats writes in lines 5 and 6, "To bend with apples the moss'd cottage–trees; And fill all fruit with the ripeness of to the cores" (414).
Having the trees' branches being bent by the weight of the apples and the fruit being ripe to its core, the narrator points to the plumpness and maturity
of the fruit. Typically, fruit reaches this fullness in autumn when it is ready to harvest. Keats uses this delectable and pleasant image of the fruit to not
only demonstrate the mouthwatering joys nature has to offer during this season, but to also

Fall By Sanry Wadsworth Longfellow Poem
Blessed warmth begins to fade, the insidious chill of winter begins to stretch its ever–present fingers. People begin rejoicing, filling the air with the
abomination that is pumpkin spice. The trees lose their shades of green, fading to warmer hues–nature's pitiful attempt to compensate for the heat of
day failing. These same leaves litter the ground, filling the air with a rank of decay and deterioration; men and women are forced to collect and
dispose of the leaves. Children glumly file back into school, preparing themselves for the next eight months of incarceration. Halloween decorations
begin appearing on people's houses, lining streets with cartoon pumpkins and skeletons. In John Keats' poetry, as well as in Samuel Brydges' and Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow's poetry, fall is portrayed in a favorable light, idolizing the chill and change wrought byautumn's arrival. All three poets use
bright and vivid imagery to convey the wonder in Keats' and Brydges' poems, while Longfellow imbues his poem with a sense of majesty.
Keats, forever the romantic, uses a hopeful cant and a vivid lexicon to create a hopeful image of the fall season. Keats tosses around the reminder of
the bountiful harvest in the first stanza, talking about the apples, gourds, and nuts; he says that they swell and grow plentiful, to the point that he says
the trees "bend with apples." (Keats, 5) Keats also says that fall winds sweep across the land, showing up in everyone's stores, in their fields, and by

John Keats Research Paper
John Keats was a well established English poet in the early 19th century. His work is greatly influenced by his family, studies, political views, and
life experiences. Keats was born October 31st, 1795 in a stable to his devoted parents, Thomas and Frances Keats (15). Before Keats's twentieth
birthday he would experience many hardships from the passing of both of his parents as well as his grandmother. Thomas Keats died in 1804 after an
accident occurred while riding his horse, leaving John Keats as the 'man' of the house at the young age of nine. Less than five years passed before

Analysis Of Autumn By John Keats Essay
To Autumn by John Keats exemplifies a poem full of imagery that showcases the scenery of a typical Autumn ensemble. The name itself is something
worth analyzing. The "To Autumn" deems autumn as the recipient of the rhetoric. The title is pregnant with personification. It is structured in three
eleven–line stanzas that follow the chronological progression of autumn with autumn (personified) performing three distinct occupations at each level
/stanza. Personification is habitually present throughout the poem and serves as an indirect character. Autumn is exemplified metaphorically as one
who conspires with the sun, labors the land's crops, and a talented musician. It personifies premature autumn when all naturalistic beings have
ultimately reached maturity and face the inevitable life cycle of conception, birth, maturity, and death. It achieves this through its use of imagery, and
figurative language such as personification. The overarching theme exemplifies autumn as an ambiguous abstract that is conducive to connoting
several meanings in literature. It can be seen as maturity and wisdom. It can be seen as elderly age, but before morbidity and fatality, the harvest of a
lifetime of learning and the imminent conclusion of existence. Keats opens his first stanza by addressing autumn which serves as a source of
personification where the author extends human qualities to an ecological manifestation. Keats elucidates autumn's vibrant abundance and its

When the words are studied, there is an even mixture of loud and soft sounds. Some soft sounding words – words that use consonant sounds that are
soft when spoken such as an s –– include mists, close, son, bless, mossed, and trees. There are also the hard sounding words – words that use
consonant sounds that are loud when spoken such as a b or t –– like maturing, round, thatch, and budding. The words do not appear to be randomly
used, but they seem to have a pattern: the hard and soft sounds come in pairs. In the second line, we see, "close bosom friend of the maturing sun."
Close and bosom go together, with close being loud and soft with the hard c and soft s, and bosom being loud and soft with the b and s. The words
"maturing sun" are not placed together haphazardly either. Maturing is a very hard word with the m and t sound; sun is a very soft word, beginning
with an s. Also, in the third line Keats says, "Conspiring with him how to load and bless." Autumn is conspiring . . . to load (loud due to the p and d
sounds) and bless (soft due to the double s sound). Again, Keats pairs a loud and a soft sound. This gives the whole stanza a generally loud, lively
sound with a quiet hiss in the background. This tells of the great bounty of the current time, but adds a quiet feeling to it, such as what Keats was trying

John Keats in his poem refers to it like as if it was a person when he says 'thy hair soft–lifted by the winnowing wind' saying that it lifts your hair and
on the line before it is wrote 'thee sitting careless on a granary floor' I believe this also refers to a person as we aren't perfect and people are careless so
he could be referring to it as a kind of lazy person who just sits around all day looking beautiful. A few lines further on it says 'and sometimes like a
gleaner thou dost keep' this meaning that when it picks things up it picks them up and once again referring to a person on how they pick things up.

My initial reaction to this work evoked a taste of wanting to taste the fruit of season. The poem, Ode to Autumn, also reverted me back to my years of

His friend Hunt introduced him to many well–known people in the Liberal movement. The Romantic period was wrought with people questioning
things through scientific expansion, rationalism and individualism which helped people to understand the God in things but also wanted to know
more about the science of it all. Which can explain Keats desire to become a surgeon and then to progress to become a poet gives credit to how
Romantics were interested in nature but also in the science that can explain its splendor (Keats, 1936).
Stylistic Characteristics Keats poem "Ode to Autumn" is part of series of poems. This particular poem was the most popular for its contrasting
simplicity. He makes you see the relationship of nature by describing the relationships and reactions. For example the in the first stanza he speaks of the
arrival of autumn and the way the sun works to develop the rest of his surroundings such as the grapes, gourds and vines. In the poem he references
the music of the summer and how the music of the welcoming of autumn is heard in the gnats, crickets, robins and swallows (Keats, 1936). It is a very
natural way to see the world from Keats perspective. Until now no one has ever given the subjective experience of surroundings.

The Age Of Manufacturing That Preceded The Romantic Movement
The age of manufacturing that preceded the Romantic Movement was characterized by industrialization and scientific, professional thinking. The
philosophy of the era teaches that thoughts and assertions are only meaningful if they can be confirmed with evidence or valid reasoning. As a result,
any assertion about entities from the abstract or conceptual alike, whether a statement about mermaids and unicorns or God and nature, is considered
meaningless since they cannot be confirmed by factual report. This all started changing when the future leaders of the enlightenment decided that we
should resort to more emotional thinking. Jean–Jacques Rousseau, one of the leaders of the enlightenment observed that science was transforming
Europe into unemotional machines. He says, "Man was born free, but everywhere he is in chains...Let us return to nature." (Schaeffer 154) Rousseau
foresaw a threat to general freedom of thought, which thus sparked the Romantic Movement. Two poets that romanced nature during this era were:
William Wordsworth(1770–1850) and John Keats (1795–1821). "To Autumn" by John Keats and "Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey"
by William Wordsworth are both comparable and representative of the Romantic Movement. They have separate techniques and application, but are
both recognized as significant works of Romanticism. The themes in both poems emphasize nature, emotion, and the capacity for wonder and
imagination, which reiterate the sentiments of the era.

The Lake Isle Of Innisfree
The poems "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" by William Butler Yeats and "To Autumn" by John Keats have some similarities as well as some
differences. Both authors talk about the sounds like water, animals, birds, and insects. Also, they talk about the scenery, for instance, sunset over
the lake and trees full of fruits. But one author talks about moving a place far from city and the other talks about how one season is different from
the others. The language in these poems is soothing because the poets wrote their poems in a way in which a reader could picture it and imagine the
sounds, both the poems have imagery. The different interpretations of the poets' language influences on how the poem is understood by the reader.
Both authors talks about the peaceful sounds of nature and captivating views of landscape but they have different settings. In the poem "The Lake
Isle of Innisfree," Yeats talks about moving to an island, Innisfree, far from the city life because it is peaceful there. He does not like the
environment in the city because it is too noisy. In the poem, Yeats write: I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the
roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in the deep heart's core. (10–13) He can hear the sound of the water in his heart and misses Innisfree.

To Autumn– A Proclamation of Life and Hope
The poem "To Autumn" is an amazing piece of work written by one of the greatest poets of all time, John Keats. From a simple reading, the poem
paints a beautiful picture of the coming season. However, one may wonder if there is more to the poem than what the words simply say. After it is
studied and topics such as sound, diction and imagery are analyzed, one can clearly say that Keats used those techniques to illustrate the progression of
death, and to show that there is still life at the end of life. From the very beginning of "To Autumn," sound appears to be an important aspect of Keats's
technique. When the words are studied, there is an even mixture of loud and soft ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
This tells of the great bounty of the current time, but adds a quiet feeling to it, such as what Keats was trying to communicate –– that death or a time of
quiet is approaching.
The second stanza has mainly quiet sounds. With words such as oft, store, swath, seeks, careless, soft–lifted, and drowsed, the whole stanza is filled
with soft s and w sounds. This makes the stanza very sleepy and slow but with a warm comfortable feeling. What is most brilliant is that he writes
about sleep and then uses words that sound like sleep to describe it. That makes the reader really experience how he is explaining death with sounds,
not just words. This change from stanza one also goes along with the progression of life. It started out loud and young, and now has begun to soften,
such as life does when one grows older or nears death.
The third stanza somewhat follows the course set down by the previous two stanzas, but it also does something surprising. One may predict that the
third stanza becomes softer still, following the progression, yet it does not quite do so. It does start according to prediction, very quiet and feathery,
with words such as stubble–plains, rosy, wailful, sallows, and lives or dies. This is generally very soft, which continues the progression, but there is a

For example, the first stanza is to do with life and growth
("ripeness", "budding", "plump"), the second is about laziness and inactivity ("sitting careless", "half reap'd", "sound asleep") and the third stanza is
about death ("soft–dying", "mourn", "dies"). I think this shows Keats' view on life; that we are born, we live, and then we die. Another thing that I
think this poem shows about Keats is his view on death. I believe that after death, there is nothing to be feared, as if you look at his poem. After the
1st half of the 3rd stanza, all the death seems to have been left behind. It is very musical ("bleat",
"sing", "whistles") which I think shows that Keats believes that after death you go to heaven.
As well as all this, one other thing that I can deduce from reading
John Keats' poem, is that he doesn't think that time should be wasted.
His three stanzas all represent the senses of the human body; the first stanza is on touch, feel and taste ("sweet", "ripeness",
"fruit"), the second is on sight and smell ("seen", "fume",
"watchest") and the third is on hearing ("songs", "music", "sing"). He has included this, I think, to show us that we should use our senses, and not let
them go to waste. Another point that I think agrees with my conclusion is that in the second stanza it talks of laziness and of inactivity, and also
mentions a "hook" which is closely related to the scythe of the Grim Reaper.

The second verse describes the labor of autumn as the harvests are processed and the end of the long cycle of the season is prepared. Autumn is a
season of storing of grain, the pressing of apples to cider and preparations that come with caring for the harvested food that must be tended to in
order to prepare for the long sleep of winter. Autumn is given human characteristics as it begins its long journey towards the end of its day with all
of the applications of labor overseen by the person that represents the season. We can see this In the last phrase, Keats states "And sometimes like a
gleaner thou dost keep Steady thy laden head across the brook Or by a cider press, with patient look, Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours"

Analysis Of The Poem ' Ode Of Spring ' By John Keats Essay
In the poem "Ode to Autumn" by John Keats, my initial thoughts of this work is how the author does a beautiful job describing the season. The way
that he makes his words come to life. The poem makes you feel as if you are right there in the midst of autumn. As I read through the poem, it was as
if I could inhale the autumn air. I think the thing that I loved most about this piece is the mere fact that it is my most favorite season of the year. When
the poem talks about the songs of spring, it tells you to think not of them. In other words, this is the season of autumn and it too has its own songs to
sing. We shouldn 't rush through this amazing season, but yet slow down and enjoy each moment that it brings us. The Romantic relationship of nature
and soul communicated in one of two ways. The landscape was, on one hand viewed as an expansion of the human identity, equipped for sensitivity for
man 's enthusiastic state. On other hand, nature was viewed as a vehicle for soul just as man; the breath of God fills both man and the earth (Hanson,
2015). Keats stood out in the early nineteenth century Romanticism, a development that embraced the sacredness of emotion and creative energy and
privileged the magnificence of the natural world (John Keats, n.d.).

Personification Of Autumn Summary
Whether it was fate, an act of the gods, or just a coincidence of nature, the earth was tilted on its axis at creation, resulting in the phenomenon of
seasons as it endlessly orbits the sun. Winter, spring, summer, and fall. The seasons come and go as do the unique features that each one holds. But is
each season treasured equally to its individual worth? Or do they all blend together as time slips through the world's fingers? The beauty of life found
within Autumn can't be fully appreciated until the limit of time and inability to avoid death is accepted.
In the first stanza, Keats develops his ode to Autumn through vivid imagery detailing his appreciation for the season's life as well as his
acknowledgement of the death that succeeds it. Although fall is a transition to death, the season itself symbolizes a harvest of life, shown through the
personification of Autumn as a "Close bosom–friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the
thatch–eves run." The detailed imagery of the sun and Autumn working together to bring about the life of the season reveals the speaker's respect for
the natural beauty and life created by the season. However, death is not entirely absent from the first stanza, as the diction of the "maturing sun"
reveals that the speaker is aware that fall will not last forever, and the death of winter will eventually take over. The speaker's internal conflict over the

A year later Keats gave up medicine. In the fall of this same year, Keat's younger brother died of tuberculosis. This indeed exposed the young poet to
the dreaded disease. Also, at this time, he met the love of his life, Fanny Brawne. By 1819, Keats was already showing signs of the dreaded disease,
tuberculosis. He suffered a hemorrhage of his lungs but recovered. It was during this time period, near the end of his life, that Keats created some of
his best poetry which put him among the great English poets. He wrote, "Ode to Psyche," "Ode to Melancholy," "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode on
Indolence," "The Eve of St. Agnes," "Lamia," and what is considered by many to be his most perfect poem, "To Autumn" (Nylander). By 1820,
Keats moved in with his friend, Leigh Hunt, after suffering a hemorrhage. On the advice of his doctor he set sail for Italy, a trip often taken as a last
resort when one was stricken with tuberculosis. He died peacefully in 1821 in Rome at the age of only twenty–four.
"To Autumn" is often referred to as an Ode. It was written on a Sunday afternoon in 1819. It was the last poem that Keats ever wrote. It is his most
perfection. At a time in Keat's life when he knew he was not long for the physical world, it is ironic that he produced a poem of such perfection. To
fully comprehend the beauty of this irony, one must be aware of the summation of
his poetic maturity epitomized in "To Autumn," and the reluctant acceptance of

I chose to analyze John Keats "Ode To Autumn" for this paper. While reading the poem you can't help but feel like you get drawn into an alternate
universe where every word you read appears as an image in front of your face. The poem uses unique descriptive words that do a grand job at
drawing up vivid images. The poem describes warm summer days and the blossoming of flowers and trees and how you never want that beauty and
feeling of warmth to come to an end. The seasons begin to change and the tone of the words alters from warmth to a more calm. This poem describes
seasonal changes and how people long for spring to arrive after winter so the warmth and blossoming ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
This influenced his life in ways that helped and influenced him to write poetry. John would eventually be withdrawn from his Academy school and
would later become a surgeon. He wanted to pursue his writing career and show his love for art and literature, he made the decision to never
practice surgery. During the time while he was studying to become a surgeon he was still in touch with his academy school, he met publisher
Leigh Hunt who was an early supporter of Keats and later become the first person to publish one of his works. Keats later on in life perfected his
writing and wrote a beautiful piece of work called "To Autumn" this particular work described nature and its aspects with descriptive words. His
poems were one of a kind and crafted solely from him with no other influences or help. Keats began to write a poem called "Hyperion" but was
unable to finish since he began taking care of his brother who had fallen ill to tuberculosis and would later succumb to his disease. Keats finished
the poem in 1819 and renamed it "The Fall of Hyperion" which was never published until after Keats had passed away. Keats became ill with
tuberculosis and traveled to Rome to be in warmer temperatures to help his disease but nothing seemed to help and he died a painful death at the side

Ode to Autumn by John Keats Essay
Ode to Autumn by John Keats
This poem that I am going to be focusing on is titled "Ode to Autumn", written by John Keats. This poem shows an aspect of the natural world and I
am going to prove in detail how the techniques used by the poet made me think more deeply about the subject.
The title of this poem is "Ode to Autumn". This is basically what the poem is about. The poem focuses on autumn, one of the four seasons. I am going
to be focusing on two techniques used by the poet which are mood and word choice. Autumn is known to us as a season heading into the cold winter.
However, the poet expresses Autumn as a fun–filling and a season with numerous activities. The poem was written around two ... Show more content on

These verbs are found in line five, seven and eight of stanza one. There are such as 'to bend', 'to swell' and 'to set budding'. The use of verbs in this
early part of this poem is effective in creating a sense of motion and it makes the reader think deeply about he kind of autumn that the poet is describing.
Finally, in the first stanza, the poet uses repetition to also convey and image of plenty. The expression "to set budding more and still more" shows that
there is plenty. It also shows something infinite. The poet uses the repetition of the word 'more' to convey this image. This type of technique used is
very effective as it increases the emphasis on the right message that the poet is trying to carry across.
The second stanza focuses on the behaviour of the poet and how he reacted to autumn. It also shows how relaxing autumn was. Again, the poet starts
the stanza with an expression, this time a question.
"Who hath not seen Thee oft amid thy store?"
The poet then goes on to answer this question. The third line in the second stanza reads "sitting on a granary floor". This suggests that the poet was
relaxing on the granary floor in a laid back atmosphere.
The poet uses the word choice 'winnowing' before including the word wind. This technique is effective because it brings in a sense of motion in the
wind and the word 'winnowing'

Here he accepts life with Joy and Sorrow. Before Ode to Auttumn, Keats is a poet with an insatiable desire for the joy of life but in the ode Keats
reaches a stage of impersonality where the process of death and decay are acceptable to him. It is the most perfect of the odes of Keats. Keats with
all his poetic qualities is here in the poem which has a unique and perfect expression even the severest critic finds no fault. In it there is no looking
before and after, no pining for what is not, but a complete negation of his own self. It is an objective presentation of the truth of life. The poem was
written at a time when Keats had a lot of pain and adversity around him. Tom was already dead, Goerge wanted to go to America and Keats being
the eldest had to arrange for money. His own love for Fanny Brawne was a cause of much agony for him. There is much pain at the back but the
delights of literature are also with him. The Sunday walk by the River Itchen proved soothing and he drank deep the screne beauty of nature which
resulted in his Ode to Autumn. Keats narrates a beautiful season to us and he does it in an objective way, "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness
/ Close bosom–friend of the maturing sun;/ Conspiring with him how to load and bless/ With fruit the vines that round the thatch–eves run." (Garrod,

Each line has eight syllables except the last lines which are with four or five. This poem is a ballad which usually tells a story. That is exactly what
this poem does. Keats uses good literary devices in this poem to help the reader imagine the story. He uses metaphors, 'I see a lily on thy brow,' and
alliteration, 'strange she said. Also used in this poem is repetition to make the reader remember a vital point within the poem and stress an important
part, caesuras to break up some of the sentences, rhyme and enjambment to keep the poem flowing and old language to help state the time the poem
was written in.
The poem ends repeating the way it begins. This represents life as a circle you end similar to how you are born, helpless like the knight.
The style of this poem is romantic and it contains classic elements such as medieval subject matter, 'knight–at–arms,' beauty, emotion, sensuality, 'I love

Keats's Reflection Of Autumn, The Season Of Fog And Growth
The poet speaks of autumn, the season of fog and production. The first line portrays autumn as a period of growth. Autumn is a close friend of the
maturing sun. The word "maturing" is used to describe the shorter daylight of winter. Together, autumn and the sun help the vines that wrap around
thatched roofs bear fruit. The image of growth persists in the following lines; the poet describes plants and fruits "bending" or changing shape in
reaction to their development: trees bend with the weight of ripening apples, gourds grow in size, and kernels develop in the centers of hazelnuts.
Flowers continue to multiply until the bees feel as if warm days will never end. Summer has made its harvest so bountiful that it's described as
"o'er–brimmed" or bursting. In the second stanza, the poet directly addresses autumn. To Keats, autumn is a figure that can be found in the middle of
its job, which is to facilitate nature's growth. Autumn can be discovered sitting in a granary, or storehouse for threshed grain, the blowing wind lifting
autumn's hair. Someone might also stumble across autumn asleep outside on a half–harvested trench, made drowsy by the scent of poppies. Autumn's
scythe is unused against the next line of flowers. The poet additionally compares autumn to a "gleaner" who carries the leftovers of the harvest on
top of her head while she crosses a stream. Another activity of autumn is to watch the juice being squeezed from apples for hours. The third stanza
opens with the poet asking where spring's "song" is. In the next line, the poet responds to his question by writing that there is no need to miss spring
because autumn has its own benefits and harvest. In the remainder of the stanza, the poet shifts the focus from autumn to a scene of an ending day. A
strip of clouds cover the sky as the end of the day draws close. A pinkish color from the setting sun is cast over the "stubble–plains," or in other words,
the short stalks of harvested crops. Gnats buzz in unison among the willow trees near the river, sad that the day is ending. The gnats are kept aloft in
the air or are forced to fly down, depending on the state of the wind. The light wind, too, is in a state of unrest; the wind

A rich autumn atmosphere greets the reader in Keats "To Autumn". Vivid imagery arouses the interests of readers while appealing to their senses

Romantic poet, the intensity of which is present in all of Keats poems. Keats openly expressed feelings ignoring stylistic rules which suppressed other

Keats bombards us with negative images and enforces his mood of misery on us; `aches`, `drowsy numbness ` `pains`. The syntax length is long,
hence it emphasises the drowsiness increased by the pauses. The reference to `hemlock I had drunk` and `dull opiate’ provides the escapism
Keats wants, almost to flee to the bird in ecstasy. It is in the fourth stanza that he prefers to use inspiration instead, to reach the heights of the
nightingale. Keats deliberately confuses the reader’s assumptions of the poem by introducing a melancholic mood. The `melodious
plot’ is emphasised through the rhythm of the poem and the extended use of vowel sounds prior to the `melodious plot. The repetition of
`happy’ is almost a forceful emphasis to cancel the earlier negatives. Keat’s distinguished use of paradoxes, is evident here too: ` `tis
not through envy of thy happy lot, But being too happy in thine happiness’. Keats has found joy in the innocence of the nightingale, who
`among the leaves hast never known, the weariness, the fever and the fret here, where men sit and hear each other groan’. The bird is
oblivious to the pain and death. The nightingale’s song has been heard by himself ‘emperor and clown’ and also by the biblical

Summary Of Autumn Poem
That life flows on and the operation in the natural order continues is stressed here. The fame of poppies that drowses the harvester and the 'twined
flowers' that offer a resistance to the 'say the' cause a brief pause in time. This eagerness to prolong the moment of happiness – the ode stanza, extended
to eleven lines, is give en a more prolonged effect and is also shared by autumn who watches the 'last oozing hours by hours' she is in time and bears
the full load of agony inherent in process, but she is also above time watching the ceaseless and yet unhurried movement on the temporal plane. The
first stanza is set in the morning hours, the second stanza is set in the drowsy midday and the sun's diurnal course is completed in the final stanza.
The last two lines of second stanza convey the audible 'juicy' noise of the sibilants which is very strong one and is presented not simply with a

Summary Of 'The Autumn' By John Keats
Imagery brings poetry to life through the senses. It allows one to experience imagination through the differing senses; it indirectly enables one to
conceive the mental picture and senses through this element. Imagery is a figurative language that is for the use of visual symbolism. The author
utilizes vivid and descriptive text to imply a deeper meaning to the story being read. In John Keats' poem, "The Autumn," readers visualize the fall
season through sensuous imagery to fulfill the purpose of an illustration of autumn.
The senses of sight, known as visual imagery, is frequently illustrated in this poem. The first line of the poem states, "Season of mists and mellow
fruitfulness, close bosom–friend of the maturing sun;" (Keats 771). The first line is filled with alliteration – mists, mellow, and maturing. It also
describes how the fall consists of foggy air, and it expresses how the sun is fully developed and is beginning to diminish its brightness. During the
fall, the sun is not compelled to shine as bright as it does in the summer or spring. The weather is cooler with cloudy skies, along with the leaves
changing from bright green to warm colors. The leaves are falling from the trees with the help of the chill breeze. From the trees, grow tasteful fruits
and eye–catching blossoms which assists the fall in letting one see the beautiful, graphic creation this season truly is. In essence, this poem allows one
to experience taste or the gustatory imagery of fruit.
This piece of literary work notifies readers the taste of fruit during this season in several lines. In the first stanza, Keats details the trees and fruits of
autumn through the line, "To bend with apples the mossed cottage–trees, and fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;" (771). The succulent taste of fruit
is being represented and one is able to imagine and relish the taste of a ripe fruit down to its core. During this time, the fruit is growing maturely for
one to harvest and to enjoy throughout this season and others to come. This line furthermore ties back with visual imagery by expressing the stage the
trees are in. It declares how they are filled with thick, green moss on its' trunks with apples hanging from their branches. Even from

woman is also "drowsed with the fume of poppies" (l. 17), a reference that she is getting high on an opiate, which is derived from poppy plants.
Nevertheless, what Keats is trying to get at here is that autumn has finished all her work, and there is nothing to do but wait for winter, so she is

Keats's Escape from Reality
John Keats, a second generation Romantic poet, is considered the perfect Romantic poet. His works have been read, appreciated and studied across the
world, though this was not done during his lifetime. Only in the twentieth century did Keats' get due credit and respect for the complexity of his odes,
his pursuit of truth and beauty and dealing with human difficulty and suffering.
The Romantic poets, as a whole, strived for perfection. Romanticism grew as an opposition to the Enlightenment Age or the Age of Reason and as a
result the poets focused on emotion, motives and imagination. Keats is known for his aestheticism, sensuousness and captivating imagery in his works.

This ode is the simplest of all his odes and describes the scenes of autumn as a season of abundance. It has a mellow tone and this ode picks up
where all the others left off. The simple and sincere appreciation of the season and its reflections in nature as well as the calm acceptance of the
upcoming winter project Keats as an evolved individual. Even though a season too is transient in nature, he is inspired in its fleeting beauty and
does not yearn permanence as in "Ode on a Grecian Urn". Keats' preoccupation with mortality and death as in "Ode to A Nightingale", too simmers
down in this work. The wafting wind is described as living or dying, and the use of these words emphasize an acceptance on his behalf about the
natural inevitability of this process. Winter is viewed as a season of absolute decay when everything freezes, and hence "To Autumn" can be seen as
a period prior to the 'death' when one begins to accept one's fate and does not fear death anymore. This ode essentially provides a serene and tranquil
closure to all the other odes that preceded this and places Keats in a more stable position in

Analysis Of John KeatsTo Autumn
Journal "To Autumn"
Observation
In his ode "To Autumn," John Keats praises fall as the yielder of abundance and fruitfulness. Throughout the poem, Keats uses strong imagery to create
a beautiful picture of fall. For example, in stanza twenty–five, Keats writes "...barred clouds bloom the soft–dying day, and touch the stubble plains
with rosy hue..." (Keats 738). Through these words, Keats uses the word "bloom," an action associated with flowers, to describe a fall sunset. This
effect makes the readers imagine a sky breaking forth lively in full bright, rosy colors like flowers. Through this description, the author leads his
readers to admire in awe one of the beauties of fall. Also, Keats describes the activities of autumn through unique personification. As an illustration,
Keats describes fall as "conspiring with [the sun] how to load and bless with fruit the vines that round the that–eaves run;" as "sitting careless on a
granary floor", and as "[by a cider–press, with patient look, [watching] the last oozing hours by hours" (Keats 738). Through these words, Keats shows
the productive and fruitful activities completed in the harvest autumn season.
Interpretation
Through his poem, John Keats wants to awaken the readers to an appreciation of fall. Towards the end of the poem, he writes "Where are the songs of
Spring? Ay, where are they? Think not of them, thou hast thy music too" (Keats 738). Although Fall may seem as the end to the life of spring and
summer, Keats wants people to realize that fall enriches their lives with the ripe fruits, rewarding activities, and new sights and sounds (Keats 738).
Through his description of the beauty, abundance, and rich harvest that people experience during the fall season, Keats encourages people to accept the
blessings of fall with thankfulness.
Integration
Deuteronomy 16:13–15 states "Celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing floor and your
winepress. Be joyful at your Feast... for the Lord your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be

The length of this poem is 3 stanzas long with 11 lines per stanza. The rhyme scheme is ABABCDEDCCE and this is for each of the three stanzas.
The emotions I feel is communicated in the poem is sorrow, but could also be anger. There are two quotes from the poem that reach out to my senses
the most. The first would be "Hedge–crickets sing; and now with treble soft.", this appeals to my hearing senses. It makes me think of loud crickets
and then of silence. The second one would be "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness", this makes me feel the mist of air you feel during this time of
the season; appealing to my touch. It was difficult to find more than three devices used in the poem. The first and most obvious device would be
personification. Odes are when the author talks to an inanimate object, but doesn't necessarily mean they personify them. Keats does that many times in
this poem, but the first one is exemplified in this quote "Close bosom–friend of the maturing sun; conspiring with him how to load and bless". This
makes me picture the sun sitting there whispering to the sun as if they are little girls in a school yard! Another device used in the poem would be
alliteration, examples of this are "winnowing wind" and "oozing hours". The last device I found was not one that I think I have ever heard. This one is
apostrophe, apostrophe is when the poet addresses another party in the poem. An example of this is "who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?".

the above quote with words like the "winnowing wind", "Drows'd", and "sound asleep". The four last lines of the second stanza, as I mentioned
earlier, describes Autumn in pure action, "Steady thy laden head across a brook; /Or by a cider–press, with patient look," by bringing out the true
active lifestyle of what nature truly is. Again, through his imagination Keats is able to embark upon what he is really seeing. The purpose of the poem
becomes clear in the final stanza, and in the warmth of the second line, "Where are the songs of spring? Ay, where are they? /Think not of them, Thou
hast thy music too," where Keats sheds light on the idea that that everything has a purpose. It would appear that Autumn, the season which robs us of
the warmth of summer, where the leaves come tumbling from the trees, the season that prepares the world for a dark and cold winter ahead, has its
purpose too. What would spring be without death, light without dark, but indeed it appears that Keats is thinking of life without death. In this poem,
Keats is able to focus in on the beauty and splendid ness of autumn in order to demonstrate that everything will change according

Similarities Between Wordsworth And Romanticism
Romanticism The Industrial Revolution in England brought major changes to British lifestyle. The working classes experienced polluted conditions
both in factories and at home. Technological advances contributed to a less agriculturally dependent economy. The Enlightenment also reinforced
rational thinking, rather than imagination. The increasingly industrial society in England led Romantic writers to emphasize the beauty of the natural
world because they questioned both the advancements of industry and the virtue of human rationalism (Kagan 416–418). British Romantics William
Wordsworth and John Keats both embrace the uplifting and inspiring qualities of the natural world in many of their poems. However, while
Wordsworth alludes to a... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Again, he creates an unearthly and spiritual mood to emphasize nature as a dreamlike domain. By doing so, he recognizes the calming qualities of the
natural world, and so takes time to recollect his experience with the daffodils. In addition to incorporating a transcendental register of diction,
Wordsworth uses personification to develop the spiritual quality of nature. Wordsworth personifies the daffodils and compares them to spiritual
entities to create an ethereal mood in his poem, giving the flowers a mythical quality. He incorporates mythopoesis, which is the making of myths
("Mythopoesis"). The daffodils are described as "a crowd, / A host, of golden Daffodils" (Wordsworth 3
–4). In literature, angels are referred to as the
heavenly host ("Angel Wings Angels"). Wordsworth makes this connection to portray the daffodils as mythical and angelic. Nature is personified as a
spiritual being, which makes it seem otherworldly, and thus Wordsworth presents the natural world as a dreamlike entity that he can always look back
on for serenity. Also, he describes the daffodils "Tossing their heads in a sprightly dance" (12). The term sprightly derives from the word sprite,
meaning a fairy–like creature ("Sprite"). Again, Wordsworth compares the daffodils to a mythical being, making nature spiritual. He constantly

Theme Of I Am And Ode To Autumn By John Clare

  • 1. Theme Of I Am And Ode To Autumn By John Clare The poem I have chosen to discuss are, John Clare's "I am" and "Ode to Autumn." by John Keats. Both of these poems deal with the sublime and express the concern of self–consciousness that poetry addressed during the romantic period. John Clare's "I am" is a refection upon ones last minutes of breathing life, or rather a pondering of death. The poem is cleverly constructed through the structured use of complex poetic techniques in the phonics and sense appealing aspects of the poem. Clare writes to manipulate the reader, not to show them his grief and despair from his point of view, but instead, a point of view of which he would like them to see from. I chose this poem because the poem itself, almost becomes self–aware, as though the experiences... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Keats indulges himself in his personified version of autumn. This poem also deals with the theme of death and its inevitability. This was also a common trait of Keats, as for him, these petite and gradual notions of death occurred daily and he recorded them and marvelled their lack of severity. The images that Keats expresses of the cease of your loved ones hold, the engravings on a historical samovar, and the harvesting in August are of course symbols of death, but are also actually deathly occurrences if we really think about it. This introduces the underlying threat under al the fruitful beauty of this ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 2. Analysis Of Ode To Nightingale The following findings were carried out after analysing the data in the light of given objectives: First starting from "Ode to Nightingale" which is a Keats ode influenced by Greek mythology, I found that Nightingale is a symbol of beauty, immortality and freedom from the depressing and tiresome world. In Greek and Roman myths, Nightingale refers to Philomela. Philomela in Greek mythology is a figure symbol used in literary and artistry works. She is identified as the daughter of king of Athens. According to Greek mythology she was raped and after she took back her revenge she transformed into Nightingale. In "Ode to Nightingale" word as 'Lethe' is used this refers to a river in Greece, Hades. 'Dryad' refers to a female spirit attached to ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... In the same line I also found other ancient references. 'Beetle' was regarded as a sacred figure of resurrection and 'Scarabs' were regarded with representation of new life. "Ode to Autumn" is also loaded with the elements of Greeks. In ode to Autumn, Keats personifies nature. In this case, Autumn is a personification of human shape sometimes works as gleaner and some other times as a reaper etc. Keats also provided some symbols of ancient Greek deities such as 'Ceres', 'Demeter' (goddess) and 'Pan' (demi–god of wilds). I found Keats all poems full with the themes of beauty, art and nature which were the characteristics loved by Ancient Greeks. In this ode, metaphors which personifies the beauty of a season are also used such as 'mellow', 'rich' and 'splendid' in the shades of Autumn scattered throughout the poem which dwells on the idea of perceiving the ...

  • 3. John Keats 's Poem Analysis Underlying Methods of Communication in Keats' "To Autumn" In "To Autumn," a poem by John Keats, we see a multi –leveled examination of mortality concealed within a seemingly simple ode to the fall season. The poem opens with an overwhelming appeal to the senses. Anyone familiar with the common motifs of Autumn will identify heavily with the first stanza, for Autumn is a time of ripening pumpkins and relaxed musings. The second stanza has a tone reminiscent of the feeling that accompanies the end of a hard day's work. However, as the second part of this poem ends, the reader feels a dull pang of some unidentified negative emotion. This emotion is similar to the guilt of relaxed, yet hardworking men who are too proud to be lazy, even for a moment. The ending stanza of the poem arrives and passes like the end of Autumn, swiftly (Keats 763–764). The speaker in the poem seems to be scrambling to appreciate the wonders of Autumn before the swift, bitter end. The progression of ideas, imagery, and tone are highly reminiscent to the thoughts of a man who, at the end of his life, is trying to find meaning and beauty in his life as he approaches his swift, bitter end. The poignancy of this poem is found in the distinct levels by which Keats communicates emotions. In the progression of Keats' "To Autumn," there are three basic levels of understanding: the outright evolution of ideas seen in the initial reading, the contradictory tone changes, and the subtle paradoxes found ...

  • 5. Lord Of The West Wind, By Percy Shelley Nature is a source of inspiration for each poet from which they determine imagery, emphasizing its symbolic meaning and part as a powerful force in human life. Percy Shelley's "Ode to the West Wind" and John Keats' "To Autumn" are fixated on nature. Shelley addresses nature in majority of his poems climatically, according to his spontaneous and momentary response, while Keats turns to contemplation due to his personal suffering. Both poets are impacted by the seasonal process in nature which ushers them into the temperament of transition and aging. However, both of them differently perceive the same natural manifestations. In Percy Shelley's "Ode to the West Wind" considers the subject of cyclic regeneration through the depiction of nature. Shelley watches the destructive changes in nature created by the autumnal wind with a desire for the following spring and revival. In the seasonal process he sees a typical model for conceivable revolutionary changes both in his own life and in the current social and political structure of his nation. The usage of nature demonstrates Shelley's gratefulness towards beauty and the natural world. His "Ode to the West Wind" fundamentally engages the dynamic brilliant power of the west wind to issue him that vitality which has the capacity to change the world. He describes how powerful the wind is and communicates his poem in a shrewd method that paints readers a picture of how great and amazing the wind can be. Through the utilization of ...

  • 6. The Beauty And Richness Of Autumn By John Keats At one time or another, every person has experienced the beauty of summer. In this time of the year, nature is full of life, the weather is at its finest, and the paramount joys of life can be experienced to their fullest. Then the fall comes, the trees turn lovely shades of red and yellow, and the wind offers a nice chill breeze for relief. Unfortunately, seasons change and the beauty that people once experienced vanishes. People focusing only on the material and petty aspects of life, rather than the beauty around them, will let life pass them, missing out on the true wonders of the world. In his poem "To Autumn," John Keats utilizes imagery to express the importance of indulging in the beauties of nature, while alive, because humans are mortal beings bound by the limits of time. Throughout the beginning of the poem, Keats touches on the beauty and richness of autumn. He accomplishes this by introducing distinct fall imagery. For example, Keats writes in lines 5 and 6, "To bend with apples the moss'd cottage–trees; And fill all fruit with the ripeness of to the cores" (414). Having the trees' branches being bent by the weight of the apples and the fruit being ripe to its core, the narrator points to the plumpness and maturity of the fruit. Typically, fruit reaches this fullness in autumn when it is ready to harvest. Keats uses this delectable and pleasant image of the fruit to not only demonstrate the mouthwatering joys nature has to offer during this season, but to also ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 7. Fall By Sanry Wadsworth Longfellow Poem Blessed warmth begins to fade, the insidious chill of winter begins to stretch its ever–present fingers. People begin rejoicing, filling the air with the abomination that is pumpkin spice. The trees lose their shades of green, fading to warmer hues–nature's pitiful attempt to compensate for the heat of day failing. These same leaves litter the ground, filling the air with a rank of decay and deterioration; men and women are forced to collect and dispose of the leaves. Children glumly file back into school, preparing themselves for the next eight months of incarceration. Halloween decorations begin appearing on people's houses, lining streets with cartoon pumpkins and skeletons. In John Keats' poetry, as well as in Samuel Brydges' and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poetry, fall is portrayed in a favorable light, idolizing the chill and change wrought byautumn's arrival. All three poets use bright and vivid imagery to convey the wonder in Keats' and Brydges' poems, while Longfellow imbues his poem with a sense of majesty. Keats, forever the romantic, uses a hopeful cant and a vivid lexicon to create a hopeful image of the fall season. Keats tosses around the reminder of the bountiful harvest in the first stanza, talking about the apples, gourds, and nuts; he says that they swell and grow plentiful, to the point that he says the trees "bend with apples."

  • 9. Analysis Of Autumn By John Keats Essay To Autumn by John Keats exemplifies a poem full of imagery that showcases the scenery of a typical Autumn ensemble. The name itself is something worth analyzing. The "To Autumn" deems autumn as the recipient of the rhetoric. The title is pregnant with personification. It is structured in three eleven–line stanzas that follow the chronological progression of autumn with autumn (personified) performing three distinct occupations at each level /stanza. Personification is habitually present throughout the poem and serves as an indirect character. Autumn is exemplified metaphorically as one who conspires with the sun, labors the land's crops, and a talented musician. It personifies premature autumn when all naturalistic beings have ultimately reached maturity and face the inevitable life cycle of conception, birth, maturity, and death. It achieves this through its use of imagery, and figurative language such as personification. The overarching theme exemplifies autumn as an ambiguous abstract that is conducive to connoting several meanings in literature. It can be seen as maturity and wisdom. It can be seen as elderly age, but before morbidity and fatality, the harvest of a lifetime of learning and the imminent conclusion of existence. Keats opens his first stanza by addressing autumn which serves as a source of personification where the author extends human qualities to an ecological manifestation. Keats elucidates autumn's vibrant abundance and its familiarity with the sun, ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

When the words are studied, there is an even mixture of loud and soft sounds. Some soft sounding words – words that use consonant sounds that are soft when spoken such as an s –– include mists, close, son, bless, mossed, and trees. There are also the hard sounding words – words that use consonant sounds that are loud when spoken such as a b or t –– like maturing, round, thatch, and budding. The words do not appear to be randomly used, but they seem to have a pattern: the hard and soft sounds come in pairs. In the second line, we see, "close bosom friend of the maturing sun." Close and bosom go together, with close being loud and soft with the hard c and soft s, and bosom being loud and soft with the b and s. The words "maturing sun" are not placed together haphazardly either. Maturing is a very hard word with the m and t sound; sun is a very soft word, beginning with an s. Also, in the third line Keats says, "Conspiring with him how to load and bless." Autumn is conspiring . . . to load (loud due to the p and d sounds) and bless (soft due to the double s sound). Again, Keats pairs a loud and a soft sound. This gives the whole stanza a generally loud, lively sound with a quiet hiss in the background.

  • 14. The Age Of Manufacturing That Preceded The Romantic Movement The age of manufacturing that preceded the Romantic Movement was characterized by industrialization and scientific, professional thinking. The philosophy of the era teaches that thoughts and assertions are only meaningful if they can be confirmed with evidence or valid reasoning. As a result, any assertion about entities from the abstract or conceptual alike, whether a statement about mermaids and unicorns or God and nature, is considered meaningless since they cannot be confirmed by factual report. This all started changing when the future leaders of the enlightenment decided that we should resort to more emotional thinking. Jean–Jacques Rousseau, one of the leaders of the enlightenment observed that science was transforming Europe into unemotional machines. He says, "Man was born free, but everywhere he is in chains...Let us return to nature." (Schaeffer 154) Rousseau foresaw a threat to general freedom of thought, which thus sparked the Romantic Movement. Two poets that romanced nature during this era were: William Wordsworth(1770–1850) and John Keats (1795–1821). "To Autumn" by John Keats and "Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey" by William Wordsworth are both comparable and representative of the Romantic Movement. They have separate techniques and application, but are both recognized as significant works of Romanticism. The themes in both poems emphasize nature, emotion, and the capacity for wonder and imagination, which reiterate the sentiments of the era. ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Both authors talk about the sounds like water, animals, birds, and insects. Also, they talk about the scenery, for instance, sunset over the lake and trees full of fruits. But one author talks about moving a place far from city and the other talks about how one season is different from the others. The language in these poems is soothing because the poets wrote their poems in a way in which a reader could picture it and imagine the sounds, both the poems have imagery. The different interpretations of the poets' language influences on how the poem is understood by the reader. Both authors talks about the peaceful sounds of nature and captivating views of landscape but they have different settings. In the poem "The Lake Isle of Innisfree," Yeats talks about moving to an island, Innisfree, far from the city life because it is peaceful there. He does not like the environment in the city because it is too noisy.

To Autumn – A Proclamation of Life and Hope Essay To Autumn– A Proclamation of Life and Hope The poem "To Autumn" is an amazing piece of work written by one of the greatest poets of all time, John Keats. From a simple reading, the poem paints a beautiful picture of the coming season. However, one may wonder if there is more to the poem than what the words simply say. After it is studied and topics such as sound, diction and imagery are analyzed, one can clearly say that Keats used those techniques to illustrate the progression of death, and to show that there is still life at the end of life. From the very beginning of "To Autumn," sound appears to be an important aspect of Keats's technique. When the words are studied, there is an even mixture of loud and soft ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... This tells of the great bounty of the current time, but adds a quiet feeling to it, such as what Keats was trying to communicate –– that death or a time of quiet is approaching. The second stanza has mainly quiet sounds. With words such as oft, store, swath, seeks, careless, soft–lifted, and drowsed, the whole stanza is filled with soft s and w sounds. This makes the stanza very sleepy and slow but with a warm comfortable feeling. What is most brilliant is that he writes about sleep and then uses words that sound like sleep to describe it. That makes the reader really experience how he is explaining death with sounds, not just words. This change from stanza one also goes along with the progression of life. It started out loud and young, and now has begun to soften, such as life does when one grows older or nears death. The third stanza somewhat follows the course set down by the previous two stanzas, but it also does something surprising. One may predict that the third stanza becomes softer still, following the progression, yet it does not quite do so. It does start according to prediction, very quiet and feathery, with words such as stubble–plains, rosy, wailful, sallows, and lives or dies. This is generally very soft, which continues the progression, but there is a hitch. Keats writes, "And full–grown lambs loud bleat from hilly–bourn."

For example, the first stanza is to do with life and growth ("ripeness", "budding", "plump"), the second is about laziness and inactivity ("sitting careless", "half reap'd", "sound asleep") and the third stanza is about death ("soft–dying", "mourn", "dies"). I think this shows Keats' view on life; that we are born, we live, and then we die. Another thing that I think this poem shows about Keats is his view on death. I believe that after death, there is nothing to be feared, as if you look at his poem. After the 1st half of the 3rd stanza, all the death seems to have been left behind. It is very musical ("bleat", "sing", "whistles") which I think shows that Keats believes that after death you go to heaven. As well as all this, one other thing that I can deduce from reading John Keats' poem, is that he doesn't think that time should be wasted. His three stanzas all represent the senses of the human body; the first stanza is on touch, feel and taste ("sweet", "ripeness", "fruit"), the second is on sight and smell ("seen", "fume", "watchest") and the third is on hearing ("songs", "music", "sing"). He has included this, I think, to show us that we should use our senses, and not let them go to waste. Another point that I think agrees with my conclusion is that in the second stanza it talks of laziness and of inactivity, and also mentions a "hook" which is closely related to the scythe of the Grim Reaper.

One of his best works "To Autumn" is beautiful and lyrical, the words creating an entire scene painting a picture in our minds of great imagery through words that create color, tone, and environment. The poem means much more than just the description of the season. While some critics have considered it a static poem, there are others who disagree with that assessment. The poem discusses time and the seasonal nature of life. The poem can sometimes be thought of as symbolizing a life that has reached its peak and is drifting towards the sleep of winter.

The second verse describes the labor of autumn as the harvests are processed and the end of the long cycle of the season is prepared. Autumn is a season of storing of grain, the pressing of apples to cider and preparations that come with caring for the harvested food that must be tended to in order to prepare for the long sleep of winter. Autumn is given human characteristics as it begins its long journey towards the end of its day with all of the applications of labor overseen by the person that represents the season. We can see this In the last phrase, Keats states "And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep Steady thy laden head across the brook Or by a cider press, with patient look, Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours" (Nemoianu 205). The third verse uses the poet's tool of personification of autumn, meaning he assigns human characteristics to the season itself. Keats tells Autumn that she is just as beautiful as spring for the music she creates. The verse praises of the beauty of Autumn, creating a sense of the color and warmth that exists even though age of the seasons has arrived.

  • 20. Analysis Of The Poem ' Ode Of Spring ' By John Keats Essay In the poem "Ode to Autumn" by John Keats, my initial thoughts of this work is how the author does a beautiful job describing the season. The way that he makes his words come to life. The poem makes you feel as if you are right there in the midst of autumn. As I read through the poem, it was as if I could inhale the autumn air. I think the thing that I loved most about this piece is the mere fact that it is my most favorite season of the year. When the poem talks about the songs of spring, it tells you to think not of them. In other words, this is the season of autumn and it too has its own songs to sing. We shouldn 't rush through this amazing season, but yet slow down and enjoy each moment that it brings us. The Romantic relationship of nature and soul communicated in one of two ways. The landscape was, on one hand viewed as an expansion of the human identity, equipped for sensitivity for man 's enthusiastic state. On other hand, nature was viewed as a vehicle for soul just as man; the breath of God fills both man and the earth (Hanson, 2015). Keats stood out in the early nineteenth century Romanticism, a development that embraced the sacredness of emotion and creative energy and privileged the magnificence of the natural world (John Keats, n.d.).

  • 22. Personification Of Autumn Summary Whether it was fate, an act of the gods, or just a coincidence of nature, the earth was tilted on its axis at creation, resulting in the phenomenon of seasons as it endlessly orbits the sun. Winter, spring, summer, and fall. The seasons come and go as do the unique features that each one holds. But is each season treasured equally to its individual worth? Or do they all blend together as time slips through the world's fingers? The beauty of life found within Autumn can't be fully appreciated until the limit of time and inability to avoid death is accepted. In the first stanza, Keats develops his ode to Autumn through vivid imagery detailing his appreciation for the season's life as well as his acknowledgement of the death that succeeds it. Although fall is a transition to death, the season itself symbolizes a harvest of life, shown through the personification of Autumn as a "Close bosom–friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch–eves run." The detailed imagery of the sun and Autumn working together to bring about the life of the season reveals the speaker's respect for the natural beauty and life created by the season. However, death is not entirely absent from the first stanza, as the diction of the "maturing sun" reveals that the speaker is aware that fall will not last forever, and the death of winter will eventually take over.

The last years of Keat's life were met with many challenges as well as inspirations. It was a combination of these which not only influenced, but inspired Keats to write such poems as, "The Eve of St. Agnes," "Lamia," "The Fall of Hyperion," and "To Autumn."

A year later Keats gave up medicine. In the fall of this same year, Keat's younger brother died of tuberculosis. This indeed exposed the young poet to the dreaded disease. Also, at this time, he met the love of his life, Fanny Brawne. By 1819, Keats was already showing signs of the dreaded disease, tuberculosis. He suffered a hemorrhage of his lungs but recovered. It was during this time period, near the end of his life, that Keats created some of his best poetry which put him among the great English poets. He wrote, "Ode to Psyche," "Ode to Melancholy," "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode on Indolence," "The Eve of St. Agnes," "Lamia," and what is considered by many to be his most perfect poem, "To Autumn" (Nylander). By 1820, Keats moved in with his friend, Leigh Hunt, after suffering a hemorrhage. On the advice of his doctor he set sail for Italy, a trip often taken as a last resort when one was stricken with tuberculosis. He died peacefully in 1821 in Rome at the age of only twenty–four. "To Autumn" is often referred to as an Ode. It was written on a Sunday afternoon in 1819. It was the last poem that Keats ever wrote. It is his most perfection. At a time in Keat's life when he knew he was not long for the physical world, it is ironic that he produced a poem of such perfection.

This poem shows an aspect of the natural world and I am going to prove in detail how the techniques used by the poet made me think more deeply about the subject. The title of this poem is "Ode to Autumn". This is basically what the poem is about. The poem focuses on autumn, one of the four seasons.

However, the poet expresses Autumn as a fun–filling and a season with numerous activities. The poem was written around two ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... These verbs are found in line five, seven and eight of stanza one. There are such as 'to bend', 'to swell' and 'to set budding'. The use of verbs in this early part of this poem is effective in creating a sense of motion and it makes the reader think deeply about he kind of autumn that the poet is describing. Finally, in the first stanza, the poet uses repetition to also convey and image of plenty. The expression "to set budding more and still more" shows that there is plenty. It also shows something infinite. The poet uses the repetition of the word 'more' to convey this image. This type of technique used is very effective as it increases the emphasis on the right message that the poet is trying to carry across. The second stanza focuses on the behaviour of the poet and how he reacted to autumn. It also shows how relaxing autumn was. Again, the poet starts the stanza with an expression, this time a question. "Who hath not seen Thee oft amid thy store?" The poet then goes on to answer this question. The third line in the second stanza reads "sitting on a granary floor". This suggests that the poet was relaxing on the granary floor in a laid back atmosphere. The poet uses the word choice 'winnowing' before including the word wind. This technique is effective because it brings in a sense of motion in the wind and the word 'winnowing'

Before Ode to Auttumn, Keats is a poet with an insatiable desire for the joy of life but in the ode Keats reaches a stage of impersonality where the process of death and decay are acceptable to him. It is the most perfect of the odes of Keats. Keats with all his poetic qualities is here in the poem which has a unique and perfect expression even the severest critic finds no fault. In it there is no looking before and after, no pining for what is not, but a complete negation of his own self. It is an objective presentation of the truth of life. The poem was written at a time when Keats had a lot of pain and adversity around him. Tom was already dead, Goerge wanted to go to America and Keats being the eldest had to arrange for money. His own love for Fanny Brawne was a cause of much agony for him. There is much pain at the back but the delights of literature are also with him. The Sunday walk by the River Itchen proved soothing and he drank deep the screne beauty of nature which resulted in his Ode to Autumn. Keats narrates a beautiful season to us and he does it in an objective way, "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness / Close bosom–friend of the maturing sun;/ Conspiring with him how to load and bless/ With fruit the vines that round the thatch–eves run."

Also used in this poem is repetition to make the reader remember a vital point within the poem and stress an important part, caesuras to break up some of the sentences, rhyme and enjambment to keep the poem flowing and old language to help state the time the poem was written in.

  • 31. Keats's Reflection Of Autumn, The Season Of Fog And Growth The poet speaks of autumn, the season of fog and production. The first line portrays autumn as a period of growth. Autumn is a close friend of the maturing sun. The word "maturing" is used to describe the shorter daylight of winter. Together, autumn and the sun help the vines that wrap around thatched roofs bear fruit. The image of growth persists in the following lines; the poet describes plants and fruits "bending" or changing shape in reaction to their development: trees bend with the weight of ripening apples, gourds grow in size, and kernels develop in the centers of hazelnuts. Flowers continue to multiply until the bees feel as if warm days will never end. Summer has made its harvest so bountiful that it's described as "o'er–brimmed" or bursting. In the second stanza, the poet directly addresses autumn. To Keats, autumn is a figure that can be found in the middle of its job, which is to facilitate nature's growth. Autumn can be discovered sitting in a granary, or storehouse for threshed grain, the blowing wind lifting autumn's hair. Someone might also stumble across autumn asleep outside on a half–harvested trench, made drowsy by the scent of poppies. Autumn's scythe is unused against the next line of flowers. The poet additionally compares autumn to a "gleaner" who carries the leftovers of the harvest on top of her head while she crosses a stream. Another activity of autumn is to watch the juice being squeezed from apples for hours. The third stanza opens with the poet asking where spring's "song" is. In the next line, the poet responds to his question by writing that there is no need to miss spring because autumn has its own benefits and harvest. In the remainder of the stanza, the poet shifts the focus from autumn to a scene of an ending day. A strip of clouds cover the sky as the end of the day draws close. A pinkish color from the setting sun is cast over the "stubble–plains," or in other words, the short stalks of harvested crops. Gnats buzz in unison among the willow trees near the river, sad that the day is ending. The gnats are kept aloft in the air or are forced to fly down, depending on the state of the wind.

Emotion was the key element of any Romantic poet, the intensity of which is present in all of Keats poems. Keats openly expressed feelings ignoring stylistic rules which suppressed other poets. Keat’s poems display a therapeutic experience, as many of his Odes show a sense of struggle to accept, and a longing to search for an emotion which he could feed off for his eternity.

The syntax length is long, hence it emphasises the drowsiness increased by the pauses. The reference to `hemlock I had drunk` and `dull opiate’ provides the escapism Keats wants, almost to flee to the bird in ecstasy. It is in the fourth stanza that he prefers to use inspiration instead, to reach the heights of the nightingale. Keats deliberately confuses the reader’s assumptions of the poem by introducing a melancholic mood. The `melodious plot’ is emphasised through the rhythm of the poem and the extended use of vowel sounds prior to the `melodious plot. The repetition of `happy’ is almost a forceful emphasis to cancel the earlier negatives. Keat’s distinguished use of paradoxes, is evident here too: ` `tis not through envy of thy happy lot, But being too happy in thine happiness’. Keats has found joy in the innocence of the nightingale, who `among the leaves hast never known, the weariness, the fever and the fret here, where men sit and hear each other groan’.

  • 36. Summary Of 'The Autumn' By John Keats Imagery brings poetry to life through the senses. It allows one to experience imagination through the differing senses; it indirectly enables one to conceive the mental picture and senses through this element. Imagery is a figurative language that is for the use of visual symbolism. The author utilizes vivid and descriptive text to imply a deeper meaning to the story being read. In John Keats' poem, "The Autumn," readers visualize the fall season through sensuous imagery to fulfill the purpose of an illustration of autumn. The senses of sight, known as visual imagery, is frequently illustrated in this poem. The first line of the poem states, "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, close bosom–friend of the maturing sun;" (Keats 771). The first line is filled with alliteration – mists, mellow, and maturing. It also describes how the fall consists of foggy air, and it expresses how the sun is fully developed and is beginning to diminish its brightness. During the fall, the sun is not compelled to shine as bright as it does in the summer or spring. The weather is cooler with cloudy skies, along with the leaves changing from bright green to warm colors. The leaves are falling from the trees with the help of the chill breeze. From the trees, grow tasteful fruits and eye–catching blossoms which assists the fall in letting one see the beautiful, graphic creation this season truly is. In essence, this poem allows one to experience taste or the gustatory imagery of fruit. This piece of literary work notifies readers the taste of fruit during this season in several lines. In the first stanza, Keats details the trees and fruits of autumn through the line, "To bend with apples the mossed cottage–trees, and fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;" (771). The succulent taste of fruit is being represented and one is able to imagine and relish the taste of a ripe fruit down to its core. During this time, the fruit is growing maturely for one to harvest and to enjoy throughout this season and others to come. This line furthermore ties back with visual imagery by expressing the stage the trees are in. It declares how they are filled with thick, green moss on its' trunks with apples hanging from their branches. Even from ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The poem begins with talks of autumn's abundance and ripeness of fruit along with the beauty of autumn's ability to begin the process of rebirth for plants, showing autumn's simplicity and beauty. However, the speaker begins to talk as if autumn is a woman, one that wants to enjoy the harvest she has worked for during her life, finally using the beauties or songs of autumn that come out as the day ends to suggest that the speaker would rather enjoy what autumn has to offer in his final moments....

Then the speaker continues to say that as you search you might find autumn "sitting careless" (l. 14) with her supply of threshed grain and implying that autumn is also a woman with her "hair soft–lifted by the winnowing wind" (l. 15). This woman is also "drowsed with the fume of poppies" (l. 17), a reference that she is getting high on an opiate, which is derived from poppy plants. Nevertheless, what Keats is trying to get at here is that autumn has finished all her work, and there is nothing to do but wait for winter, so she is going to be lazy and enjoy what all her hard work has brought her as she watches the "last oozings" (l. 22) of the ...

His works have been read, appreciated and studied across the world, though this was not done during his lifetime. Only in the twentieth century did Keats' get due credit and respect for the complexity of his odes, his pursuit of truth and beauty and dealing with human difficulty and suffering. The Romantic poets, as a whole, strived for perfection.

This ode is the simplest of all his odes and describes the scenes of autumn as a season of abundance. It has a mellow tone and this ode picks up where all the others left off. The simple and sincere appreciation of the season and its reflections in nature as well as the calm acceptance of the upcoming winter project Keats as an evolved individual. Even though a season too is transient in nature, he is inspired in its fleeting beauty and does not yearn permanence as in "Ode on a Grecian Urn". Keats' preoccupation with mortality and death as in "Ode to A Nightingale", too simmers down in this work. The wafting wind is described as living or dying, and the use of these words emphasize an acceptance on his behalf about the natural inevitability of this process. Winter is viewed as a season of absolute decay when everything freezes, and hence "To Autumn" can be seen as a period prior to the 'death' when one begins to accept one's fate and does not fear death anymore. This ode essentially provides a serene and tranquil closure to all the other odes that preceded this and places Keats in a more stable position in ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 39. Analysis Of John KeatsTo Autumn Journal "To Autumn" Observation In his ode "To Autumn," John Keats praises fall as the yielder of abundance and fruitfulness. Throughout the poem, Keats uses strong imagery to create a beautiful picture of fall. For example, in stanza twenty–five, Keats writes "...barred clouds bloom the soft–dying day, and touch the stubble plains with rosy hue..." (Keats 738). Through these words, Keats uses the word "bloom," an action associated with flowers, to describe a fall sunset. This effect makes the readers imagine a sky breaking forth lively in full bright, rosy colors like flowers. Through this description, the author leads his readers to admire in awe one of the beauties of fall. Also, Keats describes the activities of autumn through unique personification. As an illustration, Keats describes fall as "conspiring with [the sun] how to load and bless with fruit the vines that round the that–eaves run;" as "sitting careless on a granary floor", and as "[by a cider–press, with patient look, [watching] the last oozing hours by hours" (Keats 738). Through these words, Keats shows the productive and fruitful activities completed in the harvest autumn season. Interpretation Through his poem, John Keats wants to awaken the readers to an appreciation of fall. Towards the end of the poem, he writes "Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they? Think not of them, thou hast thy music too" (Keats 738). Although Fall may seem as the end to the life of spring and summer, Keats wants people to realize that fall enriches their lives with the ripe fruits, rewarding activities, and new sights and sounds (Keats 738). Through his description of the beauty, abundance, and rich harvest that people experience during the fall season, Keats encourages people to accept the blessings of fall with thankfulness. Integration Deuteronomy 16:13–15 states "Celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing floor and your winepress. Be joyful at your Feast... for the Lord your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete." Also, in 1 Timothy 4:4–5, Paul writes "For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected...it

The indirect meaning is not clear at all. I thought it could possibly be about a relationship, but the poem just did not speak to me in this way. When I looked it up, I found people saying that it could be a relationship, but there is not a clear answer to what the indirect meaning is.

The emotions I feel is communicated in the poem is sorrow, but could also be anger. There are two quotes from the poem that reach out to my senses the most. The first would be "Hedge–crickets sing; and now with treble soft.", this appeals to my hearing senses. It makes me think of loud crickets and then of silence. The second one would be "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness", this makes me feel the mist of air you feel during this time of the season; appealing to my touch. It was difficult to find more than three devices used in the poem. The first and most obvious device would be personification. Odes are when the author talks to an inanimate object, but doesn't necessarily mean they personify them. Keats does that many times in this poem, but the first one is exemplified in this quote "Close bosom–friend of the maturing sun; conspiring with him how to load and bless". This makes me picture the sun sitting there whispering to the sun as if they are little girls in a school yard! Another device used in the poem would be alliteration, examples of this are "winnowing wind" and "oozing hours". The last device I found was not one that I think I have ever heard.

Authors have been given an endless supply of pictures and descriptions because of nature's infinite splendor that can be vividly reproduced through words. It is because of this fact that often a reader is faced with two different approaches to the way nature is portrayed.

But the second line in this poem, "sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find," was particularly interesting to me for I relate to its feelings of optimism and accord. In a way it also seems that the second stanza is heavy with sleepiness, with the exception of the last four lines, as displayed in the above quote with words like the "winnowing wind", "Drows'd", and "sound asleep". The four last lines of the second stanza, as I mentioned earlier, describes Autumn in pure action, "Steady thy laden head across a brook; /Or by a cider–press, with patient look," by bringing out the true active lifestyle of what nature truly is. Again, through his imagination Keats is able to embark upon what he is really seeing. The purpose of the poem becomes clear in the final stanza, and in the warmth of the second line, "Where are the songs of spring? Ay, where are they? /Think not of them, Thou hast thy music too," where Keats sheds light on the idea that that everything has a purpose. It would appear that Autumn, the season which robs us of the warmth of summer, where the leaves come tumbling from the trees, the season that prepares the world for a dark and cold winter ahead, has its purpose too. What would spring be without death, light without dark, but indeed it appears that Keats is thinking of life without death.

The working classes experienced polluted conditions both in factories and at home. Technological advances contributed to a less agriculturally dependent economy.

The increasingly industrial society in England led Romantic writers to emphasize the beauty of the natural world because they questioned both the advancements of industry and the virtue of human rationalism (Kagan 416–418).

By doing so, he recognizes the calming qualities of the natural world, and so takes time to recollect his experience with the daffodils. In addition to incorporating a transcendental register of diction, Wordsworth uses personification to develop the spiritual quality of nature. Wordsworth personifies the daffodils and compares them to spiritual entities to create an ethereal mood in his poem, giving the flowers a mythical quality. He incorporates mythopoesis, which is the making of myths ("Mythopoesis"). The daffodils are described as "a crowd, / A host, of golden Daffodils" (Wordsworth 3 –4). In literature, angels are referred to as the heavenly host ("Angel Wings Angels"). Wordsworth makes this connection to portray the daffodils as mythical and angelic. Nature is personified as a spiritual being, which makes it seem otherworldly, and thus Wordsworth presents the natural world as a dreamlike entity that he can always look back on for serenity. Also, he describes the daffodils "Tossing their heads in a sprightly dance" (12). The term sprightly derives from the word sprite, meaning a fairy–like creature ("Sprite").
