...Keats: “To Autumn” John Keats was an English romantic poet in the early 1800s. One of his best works “To Autumn” is both beautiful and lyrical, the words creating an entire scene painting a picture in our minds of great imagery with 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 poet, being the master of his craft, carefully structures each stanza to represent the movement of autumn — from how it begins, to how it continues through mid-autumn, and up until it ends.

As someone who has taken alcohol, he feels numb. But upon hearing a nightingale singing atop a tree in the forest, he slips into a dream like state as the bird’s song slowly turns his pain into pleasure. The way the Nightingale’s song captures him, dulling his senses and momentarily drowning his pain, is captured by his reference to the five senses.

...Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale” “Ode to a Nightingale” byJohn Keats was inspired by the song of a nightingale whose song Keats heard in his friend’s garden back in 1819. It was a beautiful spring morning and the nightingale’s song was joyous and tranquil at once. This made Keats sit for two or more hours under the plum tree and enjoy the continuous song. As a result, “Ode to a Nightingale” was born, as it seems, in the same breath with the bird’s song.

The narrator wishes for the innocence of a lack of the knowledge for what is making them sad and goes on to describe a world in which he believes the nightingale is immersed in peace and joy.
