“Good delivery – easy to follow…well-paced…enjoyed discussion round poems, rather than reading on own…good mixture of study information about poet and times”

Course Participant

In April 1819 John Keats became a full-time poet. In this year, in a flurry of creativity, he writes most of his major Odes and proposes marriage of Fanny Brawne. We will study several of the Odes Keats’ wrote in 1819 and try to understand the context in which they are written. The class will be lecture and discussion based. Ideally you should have read the following poems (copies will be provided): Ode to Psyche, Ode on a Grecian Urn, Ode to a Nightingale, Ode on Indolence and Ode to Melancholy.
