“Beauty is truth–truth beauty–that is all ye know on earth and all ye need to know.” From “Ode to a Grecian Urn” by John Keats.
For next week, I ask that you review the section on The Romantic Poets. Choose one poem from this section and discuss the main idea of the poem, your favorite line, and a particularly good use of figurative language or other poetic device. Go to the bottom of this site, and search from either “British Romantic Poets” or “Seminal Poems.” Choose one poem to discuss. Be sure to also review the biography of your poet.
For a review of poetic devices see Elements of Poetry .
Please post your comment by pressing “comments” (above), putting your comment in the reply box, and “posting.”
