Topic: When I have Fears that I may Cease to Be


  
  Lisa M
Fear is an emotion in the poem and an integral part of experience.
Thus, the greatest fears that we possesses, such as death, may become revealed or faced, through the intense thinking that accompanies writing a poem (Napierkowski 294).
Keat’s fears turn to thoughts that both "fame" and "love" are doomed in the end to "nothingness." His final fear, which is the fate of "high romance" or man’s soul remains unresolved in the poem (Napierkowski 294-295).

 Keats: When I have fears that I may cease to be"
Keats resolves his fears by asserting the unimportance of love and fame in the concluding two and a half lines of this sonnet.
In the next quatrain (lines 5-8), he sees the world as full of material he could transform into poetry (his is "the magic hand")--the beauty of nature ("night's starr'd face) and the larger meanings he perceives beneath the appearance of nature or physical phenomena ("Huge cloudy symbols").
The shore is a point of contact, the threshold between two worlds or conditions, land and sea; so Keats is crossing a threshold, from his desire for fame and love to accepting their unimportance and ceasing to fear and yearn.

It may also represent an idealized image of the perfect woman for him, and he is afraid that he may never see her again and never experience the "fairy power" of love which can render him immortal.
Another possibility is that he may be referring to his muse, and his fear in this case is directed at the loss of his poetry (poetic ability?)
Lines 12 and 13: In the previous lines, he talks about his fears, longings and dreams, and now reality intrudes, and he finds that without all the things he treasures most - that is, knowledge, love, poetry and fame - he is alone.

 Term-Papers.us - When I Have Fears That I Will Ease To Be
In John Keats When I have fears that I may cease to be, Keats establishes three phases of coping with death.
Keats feared that he would be unable to write down all his poetry in his head before he died.
His fear of not being able to capture all his works before his death is an example of his fear of death, and that he is fully aware of it’s rapid descant upon him.

I think that what we can learn is that - he loves, he fears death, he's afraid that his potential work will be lost, and beyond all that, that he realizes that it's this act of 'disappearance' that makes the world valuable.

Next, we notice that there are ten syllables in the line which can be divided into five groups, called feet, each foot containing two syllables, the first unstressed and the second stressed, like this (I've divided the feet by vertical lines):
A two-syllable foot containing first an unstressed syllable and then a stressed one is called an iamb, or an iambic foot.
2) Italian, or Petrarchan, sonnet, which is divided into an octave (a group of 8 lines) and a sestet (a group of 6 lines) and follows this pattern: abba abba cde cde (the sestet may vary widely).

But once they start employing literary analysis techniques, the meaning will be more clear (they may also need a literary devices review).

In particular, compare Shakespeare's Sonnet 29 with Milton's sonnet on his blindness, and compare both of those with Keats' untitled sonnet, "When I have fears that I may cease to be."
The couplet may sum up the rest, reverse it, comment on it, make a pun or other joke, or paradoxically deny what the other twelve lines have argued.
If you are looking at a Petrarchan sonnet, you may find that the difference in argument between the octave and sestet is a bit more subtle than the punchline affect of a Shakespearean sonnet.

what are ur collective thoughts on "When i have fears that i may cease to be"
I think I have only read this poem one or two times before, but, by reading it again, I only love it more.
Keats, I believe, lived a very short life, but wrote much; in the first few lines, I think, he expresses his desire to write his every thought, before he "ceases to be," compared well with nature with words like 'gleaning' a 'teeming brain,' like 'full ripen'd grain.'
