587 words - 2 pages

On the Grasshopper and the CricketJohn Keats' verse "On the Grasshopper and the Cricket " was written on December 30th 1816. The message of this poem is fore grounded in these two lines:"The poetry of earth is never dead" which is the opening line of the octave and the poem; and "The poetry of earth is ceasing never "which is the first line of the sestet. Keats asserts emphatically that no matter what the season, whether it is the peak of scorching summer or the bitterly cold winter season the music and 'poetry' of Mother Nature will be omnipresent and add vitality to the environment.John Keats compares and contrasts a hot summer day and a bitterly cold and lonely winter evening. It's so hot that the usually chirpy and active birds have taken shelter amongst the shady trees and the whole countryside seems to be quiet, but just then one can hear the ever active grasshopper chirping away merrily in the hedges.Similarly when one is cosily sheltered in the comfort of his home in front of a warm stove from the cold frosty winter and is beginning to feel lonely, the silence is shattered by the shrill chirpings of the cricket which adds meaning to the lonely winter evening without filling it up by reminding him of the music of the grasshopper in the summer months.Q1) "The poetry of earth" is not made of words. What "The poetry of earth" is made of, as suggested in the poem?Ans1) The poetry of earth is made of the songs of its inhabitants.Q2) Which season is mentioned here in first stanza?Ans2) Summer Season is mention here.Q3) Who is talking the lead and why?Ans3) The Grasshopper is talking the lead to continue the poetry of earth.Q4)...
