Okay, so I have this assignment where we take somebody's poetic argument, explain it with examples for 3 or 4 pages, and then spend 1 to 2 pages examining the strengths and weaknesses of his argument and if its claims are borne out in the general Body of Poetry. It's a pretty all-encompassing thing that will take a lot of thinking on my part.
Now, I basically understand negative capability and know the original quote on it, and its context, by heart. I was wondering if I could get help with a couple things:
Thing No. 1: Other quotes from his letters that relate to negative capability. He's got stuff on removing yourself and your judgments from the work, I think, and probably some other quotes, but I don't know where they are, and which ones are best.
Thing No. 2: Which poems, and more specifically, which lines best illustrate his own practice of this? Ode to a Grecian Urn seems like an obvious one to me, and I'm going to reread Ode to a Nightingale and La Belle, and I hear Autumn is good for that, too.
If you know anything that falls in those two categories, I would appreciate it greatly as a supplement to my own research. I figure that people who study/read Keats a lot are great sources for help in writing a paper exploring one of his core ideas.
Thanks in advance.
