The Aesthetic Form of the Major Odes of Keats

Study will lead to publication of book on Keats' odes—a reinterpretation from that of other commentators. Commentary on the odes has been, in the past, chiefly thematic, philosophical, figural, rhetorical, or psychological. Present treatment will use lyric as process more than as statement; as a locus for competing motions rather than as a product of thought. P.I. gave 5 lectures under the aegis of the John Crowe Ransom Memorial Lectures at Kenyon College in April,1978; has now been requested to give a Gauss Seminar (3 lectures) at Princeton in the fall of 1978.
