Should the odes of 1819 be grouped?
I'm not really sure, perhaps they should be as they do have several key themes, such as the contrasts between reality and illusion. Yet they do differ in many respects as should there be a specific order to the odes?

The odes of 1819 are grouped in this order:
Psyche
Nightingale
Grecian Urn
Melancholy
Autumn

These are known as the 5 great odes
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent"

Helen Vendler puts Indolence first in the sequence.

The sequence idea is not Vendler's originally, but she uses it well.
The tygers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction.

...you're forgetting the Indolence ode... :shock:

I remember this thread first time around...

Why bring this back from the grave?
