On Seeing The Elgin Marbles For The First Time Analysis



Author: poem of John Keats Type: poem Views: 10


My spirit is too weak; mortality
Weighs heavily on me like unwilling sleep,
And each imagined pinnacle and steep
Of godlike hardship tells me I must die
Like a sick eagle looking at the sky.
Yet 'tis a gentle luxury to weep,
That I have not the cloudy winds to keep
Fresh for the opening of the morning's eye.
Such dim-conceived glories of the brain
Bring round the heart an indescribable feud;
So do these wonders a most dizzy pain,
That mingles Grecian grandeur with the rude
Wasting of old Time—with a billowy main,
A sun, a shadow of a magnitude.

Keats is gonna die and he knows it. So the result of his revelation is that he convinces himself that it is a gift, since death will free him from his worldly hardships and worries. He then compares himself to the marble sculptures - even after his death, like the Greeks modeled in marble, he will live on.

.: :.

Keats uses strong imagery and analogies he even goes as far as saying to look upon the elgin marbles is death when he says "and each imagined pinnacle and steep of godlike hardship tells me i must die." this sonnet provides how keats felt when he first laid his eyes upon the Elgin Marbles.

.: :.

this poem is very confusing at first, but the one thing that is apparent is that the speaker is about to die. This is also a sonnet.
