Johns poem
  • ON THE GRASSHOPPER AND Cricket
  • The poetry of earth is never dead   When all
    the birds are faint with the hot sun,   And hide
    in cooling trees, a voice will run From hedge to
    hedge about the new-mown mead - That is the
    Grasshopper's. He takes the lead   In summer
    luxury he has never done   With his delights,
    for when tired out with fun He rests at ease
    beneath some pleasant weed. The poetry of earth
    is ceasing never   On a lone winter evening,
    when the frost     Has wrought a silence, from
    the stove there shrills The Cricket's song, in
    warmth increasing ever,   And seems to one in
    drowsiness half lost,     The Grasshopper's
    among some grassy hills.

Notes on John Keats
  • John Keats was born on October 31, 1795
  • His mom and dad both died when Keats was a young
    boy.
  • In 1816 Keats became a licensed apothecary, but
    he never practiced his profession, deciding
    instead to write poems.

4
  • Keats met Leigh Hunt, an influential editor of
    the Examiner, who published his sonnets "On First
    Looking into Chapman's Homer" and "O Solitude."
  • He died there on February 23, 1821, at the age
    of twenty-five, and was buried in the Protestant
    cemetery.

He proved them wrong.
  • When John Keats was born it was said that poets
    are born, not made. Poets at that time were
    either gentleman from the upper classes where
    incomes were unearned, or well educated with
    broad intellectual backgrounds.
  • But Johns background was the lower classes. When
    he was a child no one even thought he had the
    talent to become a poet.
  • John Keats proved them all wrong.
