name that quote

Postby Richard » Mon Oct 02, 2006 10:10 am

well, here I sit Monday morning radiating pleasure as a result of my flukey win. Now the tension sets in as I realise I've got no Keats poetry books to quote. (I lost that slim 'greatest hits' edited by Andrew Motion some seasons ago. Fortunately there are lots on my emotional hard drive).

Total guess: is it from "I Stood Tiptoe?"

I swear, I need to get more "hep" on Keats's less-popular works. :roll: :lol:

Curiosity got the better of me. . .I have determined that my answer "I stood tiptoe" is (insert buzzer sound here) wrong!
Bummer of bummers. I don't believe that we *must* know the answers from memory. I suggest we be able to use references as necessary :)

No you can look it up in books just not by putting the lines into your search engine.

My memory is hopeless anyhow :oops:

I couldn't recite a single one to be honest, well maybe only "On first Reading Chapman's Homer".

*clapping and cheering*

Give it to the sweet, quiet Irishman in the back, there, ladies and gentleman--it is from stanza III "In a Drear-Nighted December" :!: It goes like this:

Ah! would ’t were so with many
A gentle girl and boy!
But were there ever any
Writhed not at passed joy?
To know the change and feel it,
When there is none to heal it,
Nor numbed sense to steal it,

Was never said in rhyme.

If that's from memory, Richard, that's mighty impressive, indeed! Good game!! :shock:

I believe it's Edward's turn, if we hear from him again--he's elusive, that young man is. :wink:

Thanks for the applause my sweet beautiful Denise Renee,do i win a prize,their is only one gift that i want and she knows who she is ;)


Here is my one,its so hard
My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains
My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk,
Or emptied some dull opiate to the drains

:D that was a little joke one

Here is the real one---

Nor with delight can I explore,
The Classic page, or Muse's lore

Nice one Edward. I was thinking that I may have miss remembered the quote, like you Edward I have commited all the obvious and not impossibly long ones to heart, and you deduced by feel....too much.

Its not Hyperion is it ?
