I just wrote a literary anaylsis compare and contrast paper on keats and the two poems ode to a nightingale and ode on a grechian urn. it was a really good paper a little over 2000 words. now i have got to do a research paper on Keats and have to use different works by him. my last paper was on symbolism and imagery, mortality vs immortality. so can anyone suggest which works i should use i am thinking of doing the same type of paper just with more sources as i did on the nightingale and urn odes.
The poems i have been considering are:
Lamia
Ode to Psyche
Endymion
To Autumn
The Eve of St. Agnes
La Belle Dame sans Merci
The Fall of Hyperion
I always make good grades on my papers and have a 98% in class college comp II right now but i have very little time to knock this paper out so any suggestions or ideas will help alot.
On which poem or which two poems to use and any key themes or points i should focus the paper on. I appreciate your thoughts
Thanks so much!

What is the exact purpose for your paper? What is the objective? You need to clarify this first. Please state the exact purpose or nature of your research paper. I felt your email was ambiguous.

If you can tell us the theme or title then we can suggest poems to you. What is it for- are you a university student?

I agree with BrokenLyre about your theme, or thesis.
A possible suggestion might be to trace the role of Keats's women in his poetry -- maybe starting with "poor, simple Isabelle" and ending with Moneta (a Goddess, but a woman none the same!!) from the last Hyperion. You certainly could do lots of comparing and contrasting.
Good luck!
