:roll: Is Keats a pessimistic poet ,or a optimistic one?

Postby Endymion » Mon Jun 09, 2003 9:47 pm

Keats was human, he had times of joy and elation, and also depresesion and personal trauma, and his writing was a vehicle for his emotions.

I really don't think that you'll get a clear cut answer to this question.

It's more down to your interpretation : it is what you think it is.

I believe John Keats soared to the peaks of optimism during the creative

moments of his spirited art.He reached a summit of delight in

"The Eve of St. Agnes"

The entire XXXVIth chapter is a gem.

"Beyond a mortal man impassion'd far"

Well, I think that in a purely human fashion, he was both. Some of his poems seem to fluctuate rapidly and erratically between emotion extremes.

8) personally, I think Keats is more optimistic than pessmistic

A person who belive in beauty cannot be much depressed.
