On The Grasshopper And Cricket Analysis



Author: poem of John Keats Type: poem Views: 15



The poetry of earth is never dead:

      When all the birds are faint with the hot sun,

      And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run

From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead;

That is the Grasshopper's—he takes the lead

      In summer luxury,—he has never done

      With his delights; for when tired out with fun

He rests at ease beneath some pleasant weed.

The poetry of earth is ceasing never:

      On a lone winter evening, when the frost

      Has wrought a silence, from the stove there shrills

The Cricket's song, in warmth increasing ever,

      And seems to one in drowsiness half lost,

      The Grasshopper's among some grassy hills.

John Keats describes the beauty of summer and winter, nature and life. He describes life to be a never ending cycle, there is always beauty in nature for all to enjoy. Even if there is inactivity in some places, there is always something going on in another.

The poem speaks of enjoying life to the fullest, in youth or in old age. In the summer (youth)the grasshopper has fun and once he is tired he rests. While in winter (old age), the cricket can be heard making the best of life. The cycle is endless and all are a part of it.

The poem reflects the poet\'s belief that the beauty of nature never ends--in the summer, that beauty is reflected by the grasshopper. In the winter the beauty of nature is shown by the shrill of the cricket.

some helpful notes:
hedge to hedge is like hop to hop
lots of enjambment
the first octave is about summer, annd showing that it is alive with action and outdoors.
the second sestet, on the other hand, shows winter is lazy and indoors, which is why the cricket gets burnt on the stove.
wow love this poem (NOT ITS AN IGCSE POEM KILL ME NOW ITS IN TWO DAYS AND I DONT KNOW ANYTHING).

.: :.

Keats is confirming the endless lifecycle of nature and how earth is ongoing and changing throughout seasons. Keats' inclusion of insect activity reminds us how the natural world has the ability to renew itself and continue growing after death or extinction of animals or of living things. This poem is truly about the power of naturalism.
