Mapping Keats’s Progress: A Critical Chronology

Mapping Keats’s Progress
A Critical Chronology

Addressed to Haydon

  • Highmindedness, a jealousy for good,
  • A loving-kindness for the great man’s fame,
  • Dwells here and there with people of no name,
  • In noisome alley, and in pathless wood:
  • And where we think the truth least understood,
  • Oft may be found a “ singleness of aim, ”
  • That ought to frighten into hooded shame
  • A money-mong’ring, pitiable brood.
  • How glorious this affection for the cause
  • Of stedfast genius, toiling gallantly!
  • What when a stout unbending champion awes
  • Envy, and Malice to their native sty?
  • Unnumber’d souls breathe out a still applause,
  • Proud to behold him in his country’s eye.
