A Bright Star by Keats

Poetry of Keats brought to English romanticism a new element of Hellenism for that time, as well as a cult of beauty and harmonious enjoyment of life. In its entirety, Hellenism of Keats was reflected in his two great poems: Endymion and Hyperion, and also in the poem Ode to the Greek Vase.

Keats’ poem, A bright Star, is dedicated to the bride. It is striking in the boldness of images and poetic associations, the power of a feeling fused with deep meditations. Impressing as if only immediate observations, it is imbued with a mature thought and warmth of sincerity.

The special, poignant charm of the poem lies in the fact that, although it reproduces only the most ordinary phenomena of rural life, from those that for hundreds of times were noticed be everyone, they are also depicted in unexpected light, from an unexpected point of view, according to the laws of poetic imagination and appear before the readers as if for the first time.

The whole poem, like other great odes, is built on a subtle, barely perceptible juxtaposition. The readers learn about something familiar and native but at the same time they are bewildered by the novelty. They are captured by the profligate richness of the description and at the same time the absolute simplicity of the elements that make up the ode, its strict objectivity and the intensity of the lyrical mood that determines it.

Every phenomenon is known in its present state, but so that one can foresee its future. It is perceived in both static and dynamic.

After Keats’s death, his significance for English poetry was exaggerated by his admirers and challenged by his opponents. For a long time, his work was connected with the literary circle, from which he left. Attacks against him were made by those who wanted to get into the so-called Lee Canthane’s Cockney School. In fact, he was associated with this group only by personal friendship. Criticism of the next generation, alien to such prejudices, realized this and appreciated the genius of Keats, and the dignity of his poetry. Now he has a place in English literature on a par with Byron and Shelley, although his poems differ markedly in mood and inner content. If Byron personified demonism in European poetry, and Shelley was an adherent of pantheism, Keats belongs to the creation of a deeply poetic direction, where the poet’s attention concentrates on the inner world of a man.
