  • Beautiful Keats addresses the tragedy of life, where men are resigned to sit and hear each other groanwhere youth grows pale, and spectre thin, and dies But he juxtaposes this with the nightingale, his immortal bird , whose song echoes through the ages being heard by the high and mighty and the mean and lowly, a song that the poet himself hears and one he claims that Ruth heard so long ago The poet at one point stanza 6 contemplates suicide, claiming to have been half in love with easeful Death [...]



  • 4.2 5 starsThis poem was written by Keats whilst living with his friend Brown at Hampstead Wentworth Place , in the early months of 1819 In April, a nightingale built her nest in the garden, and Brown writes Keats felt a tranquil and continual joy in her song and one morning he took his chair from the breakfast table to the grass plot under a plum, where he sat for two or three hours When he came into the house I perceived he had some scraps of paper in his hand, and these he was quietly thrusti [...]


  • When I was in high school, we studied a few of John Keats poems High school might be something I left behind a while ago, but I never forgot about these poems And since I ve written a story where students actually study a few of his poems, I ve been re reading them lately.I love how it begins My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness painsUp until we studied Keats, I d found poetry boring and lacking I had no real appreciation for it But his words made me realise just how imaginative a well written [...]


  • Read as part of The Complete Poems of John KeatsAway away for I will fly to thee,Not charioted by Bacchus and his pards,But on the viewless wings of Poesy,Though the dull brain perplexes and retards Already with thee tender is the night,And haply the Queen Moon is on her throne,Cluster d around by all her starry Fays But here there is no light,Save what from heaven is with the breezes blownThrough verdurous glooms and winding mossy ways Darkling I listen and, for many a timeI have been half in l [...]


  • I have been half in love with easeful Death, Call d him soft names in many a mused rhyme,To take into the air my quiet breath Now than ever seems it rich to die,To cease upon the midnight with no pain I ll say only one thing this poem read by Benedict Cumberbatch s voice is everything.


  • John Keats never seemed to ever truly get happy Instead, he seemed gloomy and melancholy as he knew he would die young He did die two years after writing this poem Listening to the nightingale makes him sad as he is so happy.


  • This poem was quite sad The whole time Benedict Cumberbatch narrated it all I could think was, It feels like someone describing there own depression or maybe just there despair Not surebut I did enjoy it.




  • This poem is just so beautiful Written by Keats in 1819, written apparently in Hamstead, England It s a heavy toned poem transiency, whether in human life or in nature I really enjoy this poem And I give it 4.5 stars for sheer brilliance x



  • I liked this poem a lot A LOT I just didn t give it a super high rating because it usually takes me a few times reading poetry to fully fall in love and appreciate it at different times in my life.


  • Very complex language rich but it gave lot of ambiguous sensual imagery with mixed happiness and darkness.
