One of my favourite poems has always been “On First Looking Into Chapman’s Homer” by John Keats. I’m intimately familiar with the subject matter of the first ten lines, as they deal with western isles sacred to Apollo in antiquity, but I was for a long time unsure about the final four lines, with the mentions of Cortez, the Pacific and Darien. 53 more words
“To Autumn” has been called “the most anthologized poem in the English language”. I can’t vouch for that, but I can say that it was written on September 19, 1819, which means that Keats penned it at the beginning of the season itself, which makes it an even more delightful tribute to fall than it already is. 262 more words
