Good Books Selected Poetry I don’t think anybody truly knows or understands Keats simply because we never got his full developed poetry. He died far too early. Just as he was beginning to break away from the contemporary influences on his voice, and to form his own poetic genius, he died. What we have is an early version of the poet Keats: not a full picture of what he would have been. We can glimpse Keats but we can never comprehend exactly where he would have ended up.Keats would have, undoubtedly, gone on to write many great things; he did write some beautiful poems but for me none of them were as superb as they could have been: they were a little superfluous and a little overdone. Often his language is exquisite, sensual even, though it does not seem to do much. Keats tried to write aside from the realms of politics and social issues, focusing instead on aestheticism. As such his poems are pleasant to read but I was not particularly moved by any of them: they did not have the power to invoke emotions.Keats knew this too; he knew he was developing and as you read his work chronologically you can really see it. His first poems were very, very, simple but by the end his reading of Spencer and Milton had shaped his verse and transformed his language: he was so much better. He improved radically and drastically. Had he another ten years of life he could well have been the greatest poet of the age. (An idea I do not take lightly.) His ideas of aestheticism were growing and becoming more evocative of human experience; he was almost there. So I lament his death. I lament a writer that could have been. And that may sound strange when speaking of Keats because he is a writer of great renown, readership and critical attention but he would have been so much more in time. But now I’m going to do something a quite rude, I’m going to quote a better poet (only because he had more time) to end this review and summarise what we lost when Keats died:Adonais: An Elegy on the Death of John Keats-By Percy Bysshe Shelley"I weep for Adonais—he is dead! Oh, weep for Adonais! though our tears Thaw not the frost which binds so dear a head! And thou, sad Hour, selected from all years To mourn our loss, rouse thy obscure compeers, And teach them thine own sorrow, say: "With me Died Adonais; till the Future dares Forget the Past, his fate and fame shall beAn echo and a light unto eternity!"
