.\ i i in-... im- gone abroad prejudicial to the
manliness of Keats. Such an idea in relation to
;iuv oho who lias given undoubted proof of intel?
lectual vigor, should never bo confidently enter?
tained; Strong sense generally accompanies strong
feeling : and it may be fairly presumed that when
:i maii of true force of character is chargeable
with groat weakness, ii is usuallv to bo ascribed
more to physical and accidental cause.- than to
.i iy inherent anil absolute, defect. The whole en
vironrncnl of circumstances must be weighed in
the 1 ri lance with the genuine characteristics of the
individti ii, before ivc can tnily pronounce on the
case. Keats was :i man of n most aliluenl imngi
iinrion, sensitive feelings, and high aims; hut he
v a born ;i' a livery stable; Iiis constitution was
mdicallvfeeble, and Iiis nfl'cctions grievously dis?
appointed. Considering what a world wo live in,
und the trait- ?>! our common nature, this was a
painful combination. Almost every young man
cherishes an idea which he confidently expects to
realize. A poetical mind unites with such hopes
ti inguhir intensity of.'-purpose; failure is accor?
dingly the signal for despair. It is not in moral
enferpri es a in trade. W hen the hopes of tin1
heart tin- bankrupt., renovation is not easy they arc
ion often ail risked upon one adventure, and when
that miscarries, iron nerves and an indomitable
ill arerequired lo stand the shock. The cherished
aim of Keais was do.ibtle.-s to retrieve his social
condition by the force of Ids genius. There was
nothing presumptuous in such an anticipation. He
hud evinced more of the ' diviims nlllatus' than
many English poof- of good reputation, and his
powers were by no moans fully ripe. He had an
exuberance of l\mcy truly wonderful?the inde?
pendence to choose his own path, and an honest
ambition to win the laurel which ho felt was with?
in his ? i ti -p. Ho published hi- first volume at the
age of twenty-one. Hi: political opinion- and
those of his associates, drew upon Iii- literary ef?
forts tli.' mos I severe vituperation: and when En
ilymion appeared in 1818, it was furiously assailed
by the great critical authority of the day. Giffovd
declared his intention of attacking it. even before
ii i appearance. The lowly birth of the poet, the
character of his friends, and the humble nature of
his early education, were turned into arrow-; dip?
ped ii. i all. to rankle in hi- sensitive heart. The
courtesies of private life were invaded, and the
grossest calumnies resorted to, in order to c^rry
otii the system of abuse then prevalent. With
good health, and a reasonable prospect id' contin?
ued existence, Keats could have faced the storm.
He could have lived down opprobrium, and awed
a venal pi.- by the shadow of bis manne genius.
But feel ins that the seeds of death wer.- already
within liihr, and having striven in vain
? t? up rear
Love's ? tandard on the battlements >>i s?nig,'
he no longer hoped " lo leave his name upon the
harp-si ring.'-.- Ho felt that he must pass away un
vindicated. 1!?- criticism to which his death is
? ottitoonlv ascribed, was but the last of a series of
puiiiful.expeiieuc'-. It is 'very unjust to select one,
und thai i!i ? least dignified ol his trial-, and ivpre
eut him as thus unworthily vtiiupuslicd. It whs
" in l.atia lion"' and noi singly, that troubles over?
powered him. It was physical infirmity rather
I.htui morbid feeling, that gave lata! eiYcot lu criti?
cal abuse. The ?? article" was the climax, rather
than the arbiter of Iiis fate. Byron's facetious
rhymes, iii.-lehne, pa-- for nothing. Keats was
not '* extinguished by an article." It i- untrue
dial he was "laughed into Lethe by some rpiaint
r?viev " II.- woes were only aggravated by ridi?
cule, and his lust days embittered by the obloquy
attempted to be cast on his name. It is obvious,
therefore, ihal he"Was no lack-a-daisaeal suuerer.

than known, lie kept his fi-elings to Imuself, and
they preyed upon him the m >iv. He possessed too
mach delicacy !?> intrude his sorrows, even upon
inornate friends. He " bore his faculties so meek?
ly, that to a kindly observer in- silent it rief-could
. not hut. ?? ehallcnge pity." There is a strength ol
quiet endurance us significant of courage, as the
inp.-l during feats ,,t' prowess. Keats displayed
this energy of mind to a degree which completely
hi ..us the edge ..f sarcasm as applied to his sensi?
bility. Me had. -ays one of his friends, a face in
which was visible ?? an eager power, checked and
mudr patient by ill-health." Lord Byron, like all
tn.-ti who make their personal conscicnliousness
the only ground ol judgement, often erred in his
estimate <?: character. He doe- not appear to
lm\e made any allowance for the difference of cir?
cumstances and disposition between himself and
Keats. Ho -ays the ctleci of the first severe crit?
icism upon him. wa- "rage, resistance ami re?
dress, ii.-t despondency and despair." Very likely.
He was then in high health?had rank and money
to sustain him. and nothing at issue but literary
fame. Keats wa- i.r. obscurely born, his health
broken, and his. heart concentered in an enterpris?
affecting his every interest. His spirit also was
too gentle to find relief in satire. Byron looked
at his beautiful hand with pride, as Nature's -igt
of high birth : Keats gazed with sadness upon hi
?us veins -wuiien by disease ; he used to say it
was the hand of a man of fifty. In this one con?
trast, we haw a token of their diversity of condi?
tion. Lo the one, poetry was a graceful append
?to the other, all In all : the one. if unsuccess
ful with the muses, could full back upon many an
object secured by his social position und vesratilt
nature: the Other, if battled with his lvro, was left
no resource but the ungenial pathway of lowly toil.
Byron was a poet at intervals*. Keats had wedded
himself " to things of light, from infancy.-" He
lived but tvcentv-fonr vears. His education, as far
as formal teaching was concerned, he derrved
chiefly from a school at Enfield. At an early age
be was apprenticed to a surgeon; burrnsjne
abilities soon brought him in contact with ,evertd
of the leading minds of the day. His^ hupptest
hours appear to have been those dedicated to
friendly converse with congenial spints, and stroll?
ing alone a pleasant lane between Hampst.-ad and
Hi^h"iae. This walk ha- become classic ground,
frequented a* it has been by ?urh men n- Cole?
ridge. Lamb and K<vats. Although the latter was
convinced that his disease was fatal f ir three year*
before id- death, lie was induced by the hope of
alleviating die symptoms and refreshing hi- mind
with chnngo of scene, to embark for Nnple-. He
carried with him a breaking heart. Assiduous de?
votion tit the bed-side of a dying brother, had
wa-ted his little remaining strength. There was
now an aimless fever in hi- life. The beautiful
fragment of Hyperion, he had no courage to com?
plete, since the cold reception of his earlier po?
ems, in fact. he sr-,-ms to have gone abroad only
to die. The luxuriant beauty of Naples, anr] the
-oleum atmosphere of Rome must have pre.I
upon his senses with most pathetic import. No
heart was ever more, alive to the -poll of loneliness
or the charm ?fantiquity * I"" how full of." thoughts
too deep for tears," must have been their language
when hallowed bv die shadow of death !
A few vears after, one of the king- of literature
came from the same northern isle, to seek renova?
tion in that gentle clime. But his goal \vas reach?
ed. He had enjoyed a long and bright career.?
The affectionate hopes of million- followed his fee
Id.* steps. He could look hack upon many y< t*r- of
successful achievement : and was about to depart,
like the sun at his -Otting, encircled with the light
of glorv. The young heir of fame came a weary
pilgrim to the same scenes, to die in hi- youth, like
a star that rises only to twinkle for an hour, and
disappear forever. Keats was fort unate in a com?
panion. An artist who had known him long, ap?
preciated his character, and was blessed with a
rich fund of animal spirits and kindly feeling. " -us
tuined and soothed" the sufferer, until he tranquilly
expired at Rome, Dee. *J7th. 1820. How many
have witnessed, in imagination, the departure of
the gifted young exile ! The sweet words he ut?
tered, his patience and gentleness and poetry
beamed firth to the last. He whispered his epi?
taph to his friend?'* My name was writ in water ;"
ami already felt the daisies growing over him ! The
physicians marvelled at. hi- tenacity of life,When
the vital energies were so exhausted, and said he
must have long lived upon the strength of his
Sometime- a lovclv day occur.- in the vcrv depth
of winter at Rome. The deep blue sky and soft
wind tire then more than ever alluring. Such a
day I chose to visit the grave of Keats, guided to
it- vicinity by the massive, gray pyramid, called the
monument of Caius Cestus. A plain white grave?
stone, in the midst of numerous other memorials
of foreign sepulture, indicates the spot. The turf
around was of a most vivid emerald?the skv above
serenely azure?the air balmy, and the scene al
mo-t deserted. The s"gh of the breeze through u
cypress, or the chirrup of a single bird, drawn
forth by the unwonted warmth, alone broke the pro?
found quiet of tiie cemetery. It seemed as if Na?
ture was atoning to the departed for the world's
harshness, by keeping a vigil of peaceful beauty ut
his grave.
Jo eycry poetical mind there seems to be a pecu?
liar nitclens for thought. The sympathies flow in
some particular direction; and the glow and im?
agery ol song, are excited in a certain manner ac?
cording to individual ta.-ie and character. To
Scott, chivalry and all its associations, were inspi?
ring?to Wordsworth, abstract nature. Cowpcr
loved to gnmp his feelings and fancies around mo?
ral truth; and l'ope. to weave into verse the phe?
nomena of social life. The poetical sympathies of
Keats were strongly attracted by Grecian mytholo?
gy. This was unfortunate as regards his prospect
of fame. Neptune and Venus do not win the popu?
lar attention like Tain O'Shantcr, Marmion, or
Ghilile Harold. Diverse as are these personages,
they are all far nearer to the heart of man ; they
come greatly more within the common view than
the pagan deities. The life of a groat man of mod?
ern times, lind- far more readers in this age than a
classical dictionary. On the other hand, Keats
' found in the field he selected, a freedom of range
which his warm fancy craved. Among the Gre?
cian gods hi* could indulge in the most luxuriant
invention; lie could draw pictures of beauty, and
visions of bliss, and tales ol passion, according to
an ideal standard. In this enchanted ground he
need not conform to the actual, but his thoughts
could he " as free of wing as Eden's- garden bird ;"
and his muse emulate the large utterance of the
early god-." We have frequent evidence of his
love of these themes:
' Behold! lie walks
?in heaven's pavement; brotherly he talks
To divine powers: from lii< hand, full tain,
Juno's proud hints are plucking early grain :
lb- tries the nerve of Phoebus' gnldeii how,
And asketh where the golden apples grow:
I.'pon hi- arm he brace- Pallas' shield,
And strives in vain to unsettle find wield
A jovian thunderbolt.'
ft wa ? his delight to see
? Phmhus i the morning
? <r Hushed Aurora in the roseate dawning;
I )r a white Naiad in a rippling stream ;
<>r a rapt seraph in a moonlight brain.'
In these ambitious attempts, the voting poet paid
little: attention to artificial rules of versification.?
I he line- run into one another with scarcely any
view to theeflcct of the pause. The rhymes seen)
often forced. Fancy rather than form?sentiment
rather than art predominate. The couplets are
often illegitimately joined ; bill their offspring,
born ?? in the lusty stealth of nature." frequently
cii eriop more regular aspirants fur the fuvor of the
muses. The mould of his early creation was a se?
condary object with Keats; hut it should be borne
in mind that good rhymes are common, but men of
original poetical power, rare. It is conceded also,
thai an occasional unauthorized expression must be
tulded to the -in of careless versification. Feu
critics can be expected to pass, unlashed, such
words as " lush," ?? vvingedly," " minish," "grasp
ahle." " iioveringly," and the like. He seems tu
have often written without forethought or revis?
ion. There is a very spontaneous air about hi?
king poems. They How out like a spring
set loose, winding along in a vagrant and free
course. This kind of poetical audacity i- very
provoking to critics, and doubtless incited them
not a little in their endeavors to crush the new
fledged warbler. I'alpahle as are the arti.-tical de?
tects ot most of the poetry:of Keats, its bold find
singular beauties are equally apparent. And herein
consists tin- shame of these " invisible infallibili?
ties/' a- some one calls reviewers?that with the
sense to perceive the crude and incorrect structure,
they lacked soul to feel die exquisite sentiment and
sweet imagery of these poems; Thev should have
remembered, that a good versifier is no uncommon
personage : hut a creative genius is not vouchsafed
to thi- planet every day. They should have ac?
knowledged; that study can reform a careless style :
hut that no >uch process can give birth to thought
ol poetic beauty. While, as experienced observers;
they suggested an improved manner to the young
bard, they should have cordially?ay, revereudv,
hailed the credentials Keats proffered of his high
mission, and blest the advent of a poet-soul. A
few glances over these poems would have furnished
rich proofs of their promise and won attention
from iheir defects. Here ami there a loving eye
could certainly have discerned perfect gems, even
ot style, and often perceived a freshness, freedom,
ami power of fancy, luiequalled in English verse.?
but blind attachment to a school of poetry?as if
such a thing were possible?political considera?
tions, trie tairtittous influence of birth, companion
-hip and fortune, were suffered to magnify even
fault, ami dwarf all excellence. There an- those
who cannot welcome an angel with ruffled wings !
A casual survey will discover felicitous touches

mind, how fid! of poetry was the -*oul of Keats.?

?' and the quaint mossiness of aged roots.*' Whoso
feels not the force of such words, will look in

of tin- poet flow from the exuberance, rather than

I. .- ascribed, in a great measure, to Iiis want of bo
dilv energv. A verv sensitiv? and earnest heart

fered to expand itself unrestrauied by due judge?

and temporary. The poet's organization from its

aide to luxurious impressions. We can easily ima?

Perhaps there i- more cant than strict truth in
what is often said about the early promise of a poet
w ho die- young. Perhaps we sometimes mistake
the fruit for the blossom. What though the min?
strel litis struck his liarp but for an hour .' Per?
chance that brief space has called forth its deepest
harmony. What though the early-called bus not
written an epic or a tnigedy .' If we look thought
fullv at his lvric or sonnet, weshall dtscover, if may
be, the essence of his genius then' preserved. What
if lie died young .' There i- a poetry that cannot
survive youth. We are ever lamenting that an ad?
mired bard due- not undertake a great work, wlioh
it is more probable thai such ntt office is hoi adapted
to his powers. Thanatopsis i> n- precious as it
it formed part of some long poem, which few would
read. If it is objected that the poetical effort- of
otlf day are fragmentary, let it be romeriil>erod that
our time, our reading, and our very life, partake of
the same character. It is tnd the amount nor the
form, but the intrinsic excellence of poetic civn
tions, w hich i- our highest concern. Some of die
most living and true verses in our language have
been written in youth. It i- the divine peculiarity
of the art that it demand.-) not, bur, radier repudi?
ates the lessons of life that prudeilce extols. The
young poet sometimes executes what tin' old phi?
losopher cannot appreciate In the freshness of
the soul are often taken its noblest (light-. The
dreams of youth are sometimes the most truly glo?
rious cnbrls of the human mind. Tin- poetry of
Keats i- nut all a " feverish attempt; " it is often
a mature.result, lie has at least left one poem,
w hich, for invention, structure, imagery, ami all the
element- of the an, i- as faultless and as ran- a
gom as can be found in Khglish literature. Judged
by its own law. it \< a production of itself sufficient
to stamp the author with the name of a poet. If
it does not live, it will be because taste ami the love
of the beautiful have died. The Kve of St. Agnes
