I have to analyze happy is england for school..can u guys help me out?? :?:


Happy is England! I could be content
To see no other verdure than its own;
To feel no other breezes than are blown
Through its tall woods with high romances blent:
Yet do I sometimes feel a languishment
For skies Italian, and an inward groan
To sit upon an Alp as on a throne,
And half forget what world or worldling meant.
Happy is England, sweet her artless daughters;
Enough their simple loveliness for me,
Enough their whitest arms in silence clinging:
Yet do I often warmly burn to see
Beauties of deeper glance, and hear their singing,
And float with them about the summer waters.

It;s quite simple really if you really think about it.

Keats loved England, it's countryside and it's people.
He sometimes pined for places foreign and exotic women.

It's not a very good poem to be picked to analyse - it's too simple for deep analayisis :roll:

my english teacher said it was both about religion and industrialism.... :shock: :(

i have no idea if he was being sarcastic or not as he often is but still... i can't come up with more than he's happy with where he is but yet there's that human nature in him that wants to go to other places..

ps..i dont know if i read correctly..but didnt he move to italy towards the end of his life??

and one last thing..i couldnt find a single criticism or analyzation of it at all...

He went to Rome for his last few months and died there.

The reason there are no analyses of it is because it's a very easy poem.

Your English teacher is amyeb reading too much into it. I think you've got the right idea about it.
