The complete poetical works of John Keats describes imagination; beauty that is central in Keats poetry: for this reason beauty becomes a key point and it is the only consolation in a life of sorrow.

Famous Quotes:

A thing of beauty is a joy forever; its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.

Beauty is truth, truth beauty that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter.

Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced.

Life is but a day; A fragile dew-drop on its perilous way from a tree’s summit.

Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on.

I bade good morrow, And thought to leave her far away behind; But cheerly, cheerly, She loves me dearly; She is so constant to me, and so kind.

And when thou art weary I’ll find thee a bed, Of mosses and flowers to pillow thy head.

Darkling I listen; and, for many a time I have been half in love with easeful Death

The air is all softness.

The feel of not to feel it, When there is none to heal it nor numbed sense to steel it, was never said in rhyme.

But let me see thee stoop from heaven on wings that fill the sky with silver glitterings!

I do think the bars That kept my spirit in are burst – that I Am sailing with thee through the dizzy sky! How beautiful thou art!

Open wide the mind’s cage-door, She’ll dart forth, and cloudward soar.

O that our dreamings all, of sleep or wake, Would all their colours from the sunset take.

But what, without the social thought of thee, Would be the wonders of the sky and sea?

When through the old oak forest I am gone, Let me not wander in a barren dream.
