Ode To Autumn Analysis



Author: Poetry of John Keats Type: Poetry Views: 4749



Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run;
To bend with apples the mossed cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o'er-brimmed their clammy cell.

Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,
Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;
Or on a half-reaped furrow sound asleep,
Drowsed with the fume of poppies, while thy hook
Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers;
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep
Steady thy laden head across a brook;
Or by a cider-press, with patient look,
Thou watchest the last oozings, hours by hours.

Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,---
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir, the small gnats mourn
Among the river sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The redbreast whistles from a garden-croft,
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.

In this poem, the poet tells us about Autumn and that Autumn is not as bad or lonely as people think it is. It\'s actually quiet beautiful. The poet has mixed up the negative points and the positive points both and made the poem beautiful. It also describes that Autumn has a good friendship with the Sun.

This poem is about how trees seduce sun. Sun being the supreme power with a characteristic feature LUST !!
tress get turned on during day time as they see the sun shining naked. The sun being shameless n proud of his naked body shows off seductive colours in dawn n evening.
I think this can be a very fine way of putting the poet\'s thought =P

Keats has endeavoured to show autumn is also one of the blessings of God and we should be thankful to God for it and symbolically autumn stands for that part of our life which is based upon sorrows,sighs,problems but we should try to understand the worth of our sorrows or sufferings we should not try to contempt them but these are the things to move us toward further courage,maturity and life of experienced.

In this season, the Trees are trying to sex with sun by conspiring and become fruit full.

The Poem is beautiful, just like Autumn! Autumn has her own song, and a beautiful one at that!

'To Autumn' reflects Keats'attitude to life and its transitoriness.Beauty and perfection in life and nature are transitory. The fullness of Autumn is marked by undertones of melancholy. This poem also provides pictures of visual imagination of Keatsean poetry. The concretisation of the abstract autumnal mood of desolation is beautifully depicted. While in English Autumn is usually associated with death and decay , Keats deviates from the traditional approach. He shows the beauty of Autumn and its fullness in fruits and flowers. It does not have the mirthful songs of Spring. But it has its own music. The sadness of the autumnal songs makes the season sweeter:" Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thoughts."
Dr. Ratan Bhattacharje

.: :.

The poem celebrates autumn as a season of abundance, a season of reflection, a season of preparation for the winter, and a season worthy of admiration with comparison to what romantic poetry often focuses upon - the spring. The poem is rather literal in its meaning as it does not convey a deeper level of meaning that relates to the reader. The poem fails to “move” the reader in a philosophical, idealistic or moralistic way, and therefore bears no significant message to the reader.

.: :.

The poet celebrates both the beauty and the maturity of the season and at the same time aware of the evanescence of beauty. The poem is both a celebration and apprehension of beauty.

.: :.

The poems evokes a sombre feeling and a sense of longiness for the day to start anew. This can be seen in evidences such as "barred clouds..", "soft-dying day", etc. Perhaps it also evokes the sense of how Autumn is an unhappy confinement of the flora and fauna, since Keats has described them to be in their "clammy cells".

.: :.

the motif of sounds and singing in the third stanza adds to the effect that autumn is also beautiful in its own way compared to spring.

.: :.

the use of alliteration here is the most prominent of all the literary devices in the poem. the similar sounding words cause the readers to be captivated with the poem allowing them to relate to the piece and its meaning.
