Topic: Close reading- 5 questions answered about poem
I need these 5 questions answered and then a “imitation poem” of Ode to Autumn. “Ode: to Autumn” by John Keats So here we have the second poem by one of the great Romantics. I’m curious as to what you see in this poem. 1. Keats seems to be the most modern of his peers, someone who’s influence is more discussed by contemporary poets than Shelley. Is there something in this poem that might suggest why? 2. We’ve discussed some of the ideals of Romanticism in our discussion of Shelley–how does Keats work with those notions? 3. The poem works as a direct address to the Autumn. How does it work? 4. The poem’s second and third stanza begin with questions. What follows aren’t exactly answers but discursive meditations that seem triggered by the question. How effective is this strategy? 5. Anything else? Please don’t forget the imitation poem of this poem.
