Composto nel 1815 e rimasto incompiuto,The Fall of Hyperion rappresenta l’estremo tentativo di Keats di fondare una moderna mitologia poetica. The Fall of Hiperion riafferma generosamente la necessità dello sguardo poetico, non più "febbre di se stesso" ma concreta vicinanza al dolore del mondo, profezia del suo destino. Perché solo la poesia raccontare può i suoi sogni, e ...more

Disclaimer: Keats is my favourite poet in the whole wide world (and that's saying a LOT!) I am naturally biased to him because he's the only poet known to have soothed me in the greatest of sadness merely by the power of the words he wrote over two centuries ago. I write this review, thus, as a lover and not as a critic.



Hyperion:A Fragment is a result of Keats' desire to write something that would include him 'among the mighty dead' but it wasn't something he completed because of his failing hea

I stood upon a shore, a pleasant shore,
Where a sweet clime was breathed from a land
Of fragrance, quietness, and trees, and flowers.
Full of calm joy it was, as I of grief;
Too full of joy and soft delicious warmth;
So that I felt a movement in my heart
To chide, and to reproach that solitude
With songs of misery, music of our woes;
And sat me down, and took a mouthed shell
And murmur’d into it, and made melody—

Beautiful language, but it needs a thorough reread with lots of reference checking to understand (which my lazy self did not do on the first read.

Enjoyed listening to this on Audio - along with reading some notes and summaries online to help me understand. Wish I had read an annotated version instead, however, because it would have helped. If Keats had been able to finish this, it could have been as famous as Paradise Lost or some of the other well-known epic poems.

John Keats was one of the principal poets of the English Romantic movement. During his short life, his work received constant critical attacks from the periodicals of the day, but his posthumous influence on poets such as Alfred Tennyson has been immense. Elaborate word choice and sensual imagery characterize Keats's poetry, including a series of odes that were his masterpieces and which remain am ...more

“Yet I can read. Knowledge enormous makes a God of me. Names, deeds, gray legends, dire events, rebellions, majesties, Sovran voices, agonies, Creations and destroyings, all at once pour into the wide hollows of my brain. And deify me, as if some blithe wine or bright elixir peerless I had drunk, and so become immortal.” 1 likes
