Keats’ Great Year of 1819: A Study of Keats’ Odes
April 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm£16.50
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.
