    As the seasons come and go, the persona is feeling no better. Give me my woman's form, and place me where he is. Kirk and McCoy speculate that their captor was one of a group of powerful aliens that visited Earth millennia ago and became objects of worship to the ancient Greeks. He feels carried "darkly, fearfully, afar" to where the soul of Keats glows like a star, in the dwelling where those who will live forever are sts. The balcony was directly above the Spanish Steps.

    In Stanza 37 the poet muses over a just punishment for the "nameless worm" and "noteless blot" who is the anonymous now known to be John Wilson Crokernot the editor, William Gifford and highly critical reviewer of Keats's Endymionwho, in Shelley's opinion, traumatised John Keats, worsening his condition. By early he was confined to bed, Severn a devoted nurse.

    That Light whose smile kindles the Universe, That Beauty in which all things work and move, That Benediction which the eclipsing Curse Of birth can quench not, that sustaining Love Which through the web of being blindly wove By man and beast and earth and air and sea, Burns bright or dim, as each are mirrors of The fire for which all thirst; now beams on me, Consuming the last clouds of cold mortality. He will see the true relation between life and death and realize that life constricts and death releases.

I find it difficult to imagine the personification of Autumn throughout the stanza, but the two images in the centre are particularly problematic. Keats had his poems published in the magazines of the day at the encouragement of many including James Henry Leigh Hunt Esq.

Moreover, he is in the Protestant cemetery there, where Shelley's three-year-old son is buried as well; and yet, as if mocking all despair, a "light of laughing flowers along the grass is spread.Persi Biš Šeli (engl.
