because the language, the way of expressing the poet's idea is different from everyday speech and other types of literature, so when we read a poem, we get interested in its novelty.

because the thoughts expressed by keats are similar with ours, so we feel sympathetic.

a different way of expression together with a common thought.

Because Keats had the testosterone to write beautifully and polemically. Leigh Hunt, Shelly and Keats weren't just writing about their, "FEELINGS!"

Keats poems aren't just poems, they completely go against Romantic prattling of people like Byron, and Joseph Dryden.

"Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter!
Therefore ye soft pipes play on, not to the sensual ear, but more endeared, Pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone!"

Certainly the 2nd one...I have a lot in common with Keats.
Well..apart from the skill with words...
But viewpoint wise!
