At a Glance

John Keats composed six odes during the year 1819, with most of them written during the spring. The six odes trace a thematic path reflecting the nature of time, immortality, nature, love, and beauty. These verses are addressed to people, a goddess, a bird, and different emotions. In composing these poems, Keats also experiments with different structures and forms, borrowing from and blending the styles of famous sonneteers. Some poets who influenced him were English authors William Shakespeare (1564–1616) and John Milton (1608–74) and Italian poet Petrarch (1304–74).
