Hi G, I'm not going to do your homework for you, but what do you think seperates Keats' poems from everyone elses? How do you tell that a certain poem was by Keats?

Look at one of his poems for more than 6 mins and you'll see certain subjects appearing again and again, recurring themes: he was particularly fond of nature and the effect it had on him as an observer, and wrote about his political opinions and how he viewed his life. Keats was a philosopher as well as a poet.

Find out for yourself, and give yourself a little time with it. It's not so hard really.

As Socrates said, "true insight comes from within".
