Keats: Ode to a Nightingale - A Grecian Urn. A Comparison.
Seminar paper from the year 1999 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1 - (A-), University of Stuttgart (Literature Studies), language: English, abstract: Favourite topics of the ode are God, religion, the state, Art, Nature, truth, love, enjoyment of life, or fame after death. This variety of themes displays that odes can be used for various occasions. Keats' odes are mainly poetic meditations about eternity, permanence, transitoriness and (everlasting) beauty. Some of his odes are therefore connected with mythological topics, and others remind of Wordsworth's concept of Nature.
