    “On first looking into” the poem under study, one may discern some of its formal features. It is written by John Keats after first reading an awe-inspiring translation of Homer into English by Chapman. It rhymes ABBAABBACDCDCD and is dominated with the presence of the sound “I” that suggests a subjective individualistic quest of “poetic truth” in a seemingly lyric text. This is a sonnet made up of two stanzas which develop two aspects of a main theme: Homer’s poetry and its effects on the…

He accomplishes this through…
