When I Have Fears

Postby greymouse » Sat Dec 23, 2006 7:52 pm

This is an interesting sonnet to me. Usually Keats is very hesitant to talk himself up or make himself sound like a great writer. But in this poem he seems to acknowledge that he has a lot to say and that it would be a shame if he didn't get to say it all.

well i dont know if he was stating himself as such a great writer compared to the fact tht he wanted to write a great idea. but then i'm eighteen so i could be completly wrong.
Of unreflecting love;--then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think
Till love and fame to nothingness do sink.

Its all about opinions - your opinion is just as valid as anyone else's.
