Keats Poem about Artists?

Postby Joslyn » Fri Jul 31, 2009 2:12 am

My teacher in a theatre class made a reference to what he said was a Keats poem about how the artist's place was in confusion, or on the boundary, or something along those lines.

Sound familiar to anyone?

Do you mean a quote from Keats possibly? Try this quote from a letter written on Dec 21, 1817:

I mean Negative Capability, that is, when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason-Coleridge, for instance, would let go by a fine isolated verisimilitude caught from the Penetralium of mystery, from being incapable of remaining content with half-knowledge.

Is this what you are trying to find?
"Come... dry your eyes, for you are life, rarer than a quark and unpredictable beyond the dreams of Heisenberg; the clay in which the forces that shape all things leave their fingerprints most clearly. Dry your eyes... and let's go home."
