by John Keats
When I have fears that I may cease to be Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- Do you think that Keats is really writing this poem for an outside reader? Why or why not? If your answer is "yes," then who is that reader?
- Do you think that Keats has a realistic assessment of love? Why do you come to your conclusion?
- How does Keats use of metaphor help to illuminate his message? What does that tell you about his worldview?
- Do you think that Keats really believed he'd be famous someday?
