MY EXAM QUESTION TODAY WAS...

Postby pinky » Mon Jun 12, 2006 10:26 pm

hi all, i posted previously regarding help for my exam today, it was an option of 2 questions i picked 1 which was like this

'keats's most successfull poems mix pain and pleasure' discuss this, with careful consideration on keats' techniques, use at least 2 poems. (well something like that anyway)

i was just wondering if i answered it right, i picked more then 2 poems to talk bout seperatly and together, quoting where he uses pleasure and pain, and his other techniques, and also used a few critical opinions. i wrote about the following poems:

-ode on a grecian urn
-la belle damn sans merci
-to autumn
and another i cant quiet remember

sooo what do you think of this question??? :D

That's an excellent question :) I would have chosen Ode to a Nightingale because he seems to be moving swiftly back and forth from pleasure to pain--from immortality to mortality-in that poem.

La Belle Dame Sans Merci is a great choice--and so is TO Autumn. The "pleasure and pain" could easily introduce Keats's concepts of Light and Shade and how the two are necessary to create depth and meaning.

I hope you do well with your score, Pinky :)

Oooo, very good question! Supposing it were me answering it, I'd probably choose "La Belle Dame" myself for one of them (very good choice), and possibly "Ode to Melancholy" for the other, if for no other reason than to pick something different than the rest of you. :wink: :lol:

Thankee! :D This is one I made for a batch of Pride and Prejudice LJ icons, but haven't used it for anything yet. Figured this is a good place for it!

I finally got it to work by using the last option for linking to a URL rather than uploading, as Saturn suggested.

Maila! :shock: Is that the Keats kitty at Hampstead in your avatar? I saw him in January!! Would he? Would he come back as an orange tabby?? I don't think so--it's probably Brown. :wink:

Yes, I snagged that pic off of the Keats House website :) I agree. . .I don't think Keats would come back as a cat--maybe a bird ;) I could see Brown coming back as a Tom cat--having his way with every female in sight and then leaving them pregnant and alone :roll:
