Abstract

Abstract:

Looking particularly at John Keats's "Ode to a Nightingale" and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "The Nightingale," I argue that there are interesting connections between birdsong and poetry, similarities that poets themselves have recognized and attempted to articulate. Recognizing these connections helps us to see that poetry can bring us to a closer awareness of the complexity of animal being and that poetry, like birdsong, is a way of communicating back to the world.
