Ode to a Nightingale and Two Look at Two

In "Ode to a Nightingale" and "Two Look at Two", both poems tells of
an experience in which the human characters encounters animals in the
poems, the experiences are handled quite differently in the two poems.

In "Ode to a Nightingale", Keats often express his sad feelings and
uses the Nightingale and portray it as some sort of a god or peaceful
symbol. As the poem started off with Keats expressing how drunk the
character was and that as if he has taken some drugs - hemlock, and
that he wanted so much to drink more so that he can enter this world
in which this Nightingale is in.

Keats shows a kind of experience that is not very realistic / not
real, or another word - like a dream, and very imaginative. For
example the character is seeing things that does not actually happens,
but things that the character is imagining, or what he thinks, like
when he heard the beautiful song of the Nightingale, he started to
think that he might be able to enter the same world as the

One other very important thing is that Keats use animals to express
his deepest feelings, and using the experience with the animals to
show and remind himself of his past and the present sad, sorrow
feelings, as shown on this 3 sentences:

"Where youth grows pale, and spectre-thin, an dies,

Where but to think is to be full of sorrow

And leaden-eyed despairs,"

One of the reasons to why he wrote like this is probably because he
was very unhappy at the time, and seeing most of his brother, relative
dieing around him, not only that he is also suffering at the time
himself, therefore these might be some of the reason why he wrote such
a miserable poem.

To connect with this sadness, Keats combines this unhappy feeling with
the animal and natural, as he uses his imagination to escape:

"Away! Away! For I will fly to thee,

Not charioted by Bacchus and his pards,

But on the viewless wings of Poesy."

He adds to this, as he wants to escape with the Nightingale.

Comparing this with "Two Look at Two" Keats rather imagines and let
the character fly away like in a dream, but in "Two Look at Two" Frost
uses personification to make the "doe" and the "buck" acts like a
person, and although they don't actually talk, Frost adds some sort of
thinking and speech for them from him. This can be seen on the
following lines:

"She seemed to think that two thus they were safe.

Then, as if they were something that, through strange,

She could not trouble her mind with too long,

She sighed and passed unscared along the wall."

Another better example is when Frost actually...
