Essay: Ode to a Nightingale

Sample Essay

In this poem, Keats writes about a nightingale bird. He intertwines some contradicting issues throughout the poem. He talks of immortality by saying, ‘Thou was not born for death, immortal Bird” (70). He further asserts this by citing that the voice he hears was heard by the emperors and clowns of the ancient days.

The voice could not be drowned by repetitive hunger. This show of immortality is contrasted in stanza 6, where death is seen as inevitable. Keats claims that as having listened to the nightingale on numerous occasions, he feels at ease with the thought of death. “I have been half in love with easeful death” (62). He reminisces with nostalgia how listened silently, enjoying the song of the nightingale in his rest. The persona feels that even if it is time to die, he would only wish to hear the song forever.
