O for a beaker full of the warm South!
O for a beaker full of the warm South!
Still wouldst thou sing, and I have ears in vain— To thy high requiem become a sod. No hungry generations tread thee down; The voice I hear this passing night was heard In ancient days by emperor and clown: Was it a vision, or a waking dream? Fled is that music: In the words of Richard Fogle, "The principal stress of the poem is a struggle between ideal and actual: The nightingale is also the object of empathy and praise within the poem.
However, the nightingale and the discussion of the nightingale is not simply about the bird or the song, but about human experience in general. This is not to say that the song is a simple metaphorbut it is a complex image that is formed through the interaction of the conflicting voices of praise and questioning.
Furthermore, in creating any aspect of the nightingale immortal during the poem the narrator separates any union that he can have with the nightingale. As such, the nightingale would represent an enchanting presence and, unlike the urn, is directly connected to nature.
As natural music, the song is for beauty and lacks a message of truth. The narrator seeks to be with the nightingale and abandons his sense of vision in order to embrace the sound in an attempt to share in the darkness with the bird. As the poem ends, the trance caused by the nightingale is broken and the narrator is left wondering if it was a real vision or just a dream.
The nightingale is distant and mysterious, and even disappears at the end of the poem. The dream image emphasizes the shadowiness and elusiveness of the poem.
These elements make it impossible for there to be a complete self-identification with the nightingale, but it also allows for self-awareness to permeate throughout the poem, albeit in an altered state.
However, the experience does not last forever, and the body is left desiring it until the narrator feels helpless without the pleasure. Instead of embracing the coming truth, the narrator clings to poetry to hide from the loss of pleasure.
Poetry does not bring about the pleasure that the narrator original asks for, but it does liberate him from his desire for only pleasure. The form of the poem is that of progression by association, so that the movement of feeling is at the mercy of words evoked by chance, such words as fade and forlorn, the very words that, like a bell, toll the dreamer back to his sole self.
Death was a constant theme that permeated aspects of Keats poetry because he was exposed to death of his family members throughout his life.
The nightingale experiences a sort of death and even the god Apollo experiences death, but his death reveals his own divine state.
As Perkins explains, "But, of course, the nightingale is not thought to be literally dying. The point is that the deity or the nightingale can sing without dying. But, as the ode makes clear, man cannot—or at least not in a visionary way.
