Abstract

Why does the poetry of John Keats resonate with so many? His application of the Romantic Grotesque; a sort of Yinyang-esque philosophy of the balance of nature and beauty with death and the horrid, holds us captive as his poetry effortlessly blends the two halves. His use of the grotesque sets him apart from other writers of the time, and makes him a legend in higher esteem than even Byron.
