I travell d in the realms of gold, And many goodly states and kingdoms seen Round many western islands have I been Which bards in fealty to Apollo hold Oft of one wide expanse had I been told That deep brow d Homer ruled as his demesne Yet did I never breathe its pure serene Till I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold Then felt I like some watcher of the skies When a new planet swims into his ken Or like stout Cortez, when with eagle eyes He stared at the Pacific and all his men Look d at each other with a wild surmise Silent, upon a peak in Darien After which they raped and massacred hundreds of thousands of Aztecs, plundered their country of gold and precious stones, and reduced the remaining people to slavery The following is an extract from an Aztec account of one of the key incidents Here it is told how the Spaniards killed, they murdered the Mexicans who were celebrating the Fiesta of Huitzilopochtli in the place they called The Patio of the Gods.At this time, when everyone was enjoying the fiesta, when everyone was already dancing, when everyone was already singing, when song was linked to song and the songs roared like waves, in that precise moment the Spaniards determined to kill people They came into the patio, armed for battle.They came to close the exits, the steps, the entrances to the patio The Gate of the Eagle in the smallest palace, The Gate of the Canestalk and the Gate of the Snake of Mirrors And when they had closed them, no one could get out anywhere.Once they had done this, they entered the Sacred Patio to kill people They came on foot, carrying swords and wooden and metal shields Immediately, they surrounded those who danced, then rushed to the place where the drums were played They attacked the man who was drumming and cut off both his arms Then they cut off his head with such a force that it flew off, falling far away.At that moment, they then attacked all the people, stabbing them, spearing them, wounding them with their swords They struck some from behind, who fell instantly to the ground with their entrails hanging out of their bodies They cut off the heads of some and smashed the heads of others into little pieces.They struck others in the shoulders and tore their arms from their bodies They struck some in the thighs and some in the calves They slashed others in the abdomen and their entrails fell to the earth There were some who even ran in vain, but their bowels spilled as they ran they seemed to get their feet entangled with their own entrails Eager to flee, they found nowhere to go.Some tried to escape, but the Spaniards murdered them at the gates while they laughed Others climbed the walls, but they could not save themselves Others entered the communal house, where they were safe for a while Others lay down among the victims and pretended to be dead But if they stood up again they the Spaniards would see them and kill them.The blood of the warriors ran like water as they ran, forming pools, which widened, as the smell of blood and entrails fouled the air.And the Spaniards walked everywhere, searching the communal houses to kill those who were hiding They ran everywhere, they searched every place I m going to come right out and say that I m not usually a huge poetry fan Except in the epic sense where it s actually basically a novel, Byron, or Shakespeare But I make a huge

first time in Virginia Woolf sA Room of One s OwnIn the book Virginia talks of John Keats with admiration and hints that had the necessary education and financial independence he would have achieved greater heights and would have stood on par with Lord Byron and William Wordsworth two of the greatest Romantic poets England has produced This statement aroused my curiosity and I was determined to read Keat s poetry It took me nearly two years to satisfy my curiosity though I purchased this complete collection of Keats s poetry with eager enthusiasm The very first thing I must say about this collection is that I m privileged to have read his poems I have not read so beautiful lines ever in my life They moved me to such a degree that I cried for its sheer beauty It may sound foolish, but such was the effect that his poetic expression had on me John Keats is a poet of the Romantic Movement Most of his poetry touches on love and longing Whether it is a happy poetic romance or a poetic tragedy, the varying and appropriate tones and emotions are captured so beautifully and so wonderfully by his rich words Keats s expression is rich and beautiful, and also passionate and erotic The latter quality in his poems earned severe criticism for John Keats in his days, many critics dismissing them mercilessly as vulgar Perhaps it is true for the time period in which it was written, but sadly the critics have failed to look beyond Keats s choice of words to his overall tone and expression which naturally and unreservedly poured from within Keats wrote from the depth of his heart and soul His honest expression easily touches the reader and makes him immediately connect with the poems From the very first line, I knew I was going to go through a pleasant journey with Keats He took me on a journey which isthan pleasant It was fantastical The subjects and characters are chosen from real life and Greek mythology, so the poems vary between reality and fantasy They take the reader into a wonderful realm Be it a sonnet, or a few short lines, be it a long poetic love story or a poetic tragedy or be it a poetic play, the effect Keats creates in the mind of the reader and the emotions he arouses in the reader is astonishing Only an extraordinarily gifted and skilled poet can do that.It is no exaggeration to say that I enjoyed every poem in the collection And I loved most of them including Endymion a poetic romance, Lamia a poetic tragedy, the Eve of St Agnes and the six Odes Ode on Indolence, Ode on Melancholy, Ode to a Nightingale, Ode on a Grecian Urn, Ode to Psyche and To Autumn Through the reading of his poems, I really felt closer to their author I really wished though unattainable to have known that amazing poet So far in my reading life, a book of poetry has not graced my favourite shelf And I m really grateful for Keats for helping me to rectify that defect.It is a real pity that the beauty of his poems and his remarkable gift for writing was not appreciated in his lifetime It had even been speculated that his death was quickened by the severe and merciless criticism exacted on his work However, Keats s wish to be among the English poets after my death came true posthumously Today he stands considered as one of the greatest romantic poets who influenced a later generation of poets I taught Keats in Intro to Poetry courses for 35 years, and

to the film, I argued that that ode has a most unpromising start Keats is high or emptied some dull opiate to the drains and wants a drink Oh for a draught of vintage and even looks toward suicide, That I might drink, and leave the world unseen I said, Why would we teach such behavior in a High School or community college Helen Vendler did not like my argument, which I take as a compliment A lucky teacher might prod her students to read, Away Away for I will fly to thee without flapping their arms like wings and laughing Furrowing the brow, she might even resort to classroom Gravity defined by Laurence Sterne as a mysterious carriage of the body to cover the defects of the mind p.15 Keats and His Nightingale, Companion Essays 1985 I show that this bird ode develops away from the metaphor of flight, to that of song A poem may be a flight, but it is always a song A class on the Ode should let students hear the song While this ode is poetry par excellence, it also has a disreputable side it has almost as much in common with rock songs about getting high Keats, world weary and even ill, wants to drink to numb his senses eventhan the drowsy numbness he already feels The birdsong lifts Keats out of himself, into that song, into a song which turns out to be his own poem The birdsong, which he takes to be immortal, the same for millenia, makes him feel as though he, too, may be singing and immortal song But literary immortality depends on the whims of anthologies and critics, those guardians of immortality p.17 Companion Essays I just found on my shelf Keats s parody of Wordsworth Must have missed it when I read through MacDonald s Parodies in 1970 He called it On Oxford, and his WW s last stanza There are plenty of trees, And plenty of ease, And plenty of fat deer for Parsons And when it is venison, Short is the benison, Then each on a leg or thigh fastens MacDonald, p.80 Oh what can ail thee, knight at arms, Alone and palely loitering The sedge has withered from the lake, And no birds sing.Oh what can ail thee, knight at arms, So haggard and so woe begone The squirrel s granary is full, And the harvest s done.I see a lily on thy brow, With anguish moist and fever dew,And on thy cheeks a fading rose Fast withereth too.I met a lady in the meads, Full beautiful a faery s child,Her hair was long, her foot was light, And her eyes were wild.I made a garland for herOh what can ail thee, knight at arms, Alone and palely loitering The sedge has withered from the lake, And no birds sing.Oh what can ail thee, knight at arms, So haggard and so woe begone The squirrel s granary is full, And the harvest s done.I see a lily on thy brow, With anguish moist and fever dew,And on thy cheeks a fading rose Fast withereth too.I met a lady in the meads, Full beautiful a faery s child,Her hair was long, her foot was light, And her eyes were wild.I made a garland for her head, And bracelets too, and fragrant zone She looked at me as she did love, And made sweet moan.I set her on my pacing steed, And nothing else saw all day long,For sidelong would she bend, and sing A faery s song.She found me roots of relish sweet, And honey wild, and manna dew,And sure in language strange she said I love thee true.She took me to her elfin grot, And there she wept and sighed full sore,And there I shut her wild wild eyes With kisses four.And there she lulled me asleep And there I dreamed Ah woe betide The latest dream I ever dreamt On the cold hill side.I saw pale kings and princes too, Pale warriors, death pale were they all They cried La Belle Dame sans Merci Hath thee in thrall I saw their starved lips in the gloam, With horrid warning gaped wide,And I awoke and found me here, On the cold hill s side.And this is why I sojourn here Alone and palely loitering,Though the sedge is withered from the lake, And no birds sing.Haunting poetry I m in love with Keats.The film about him Bright Star was very adorableand touching as well

murmurer of tender lullabies Light hoverer around our happy pillows Wreather of poppy buds, and weeping willows Silent entangler of a beauty s tresses Most happy listener when the morning blessesThee for enlivening all the cheerful eyesThat glance so brightly at the new sun rise LamiaI was a woman, let me have onceA woman s shape, and charming as before I love a youth of Corinth O the bliss Give

His poems manage to be both beautifully structured at the same time they re achingly full of feeling It s quite a dizzying combination.
