The Text of Undersong

(p.142) Endymion
Constellations of a Contemporary Romanticism

Simon Jarvis

Fordham University Press

Jarvis explores, or more precisely, “tumbles into” the “deep thicket of new verse rhythms, textures, sentences, techniques” of a “masterpiece” of “simultaneous archaism and innovation.” As a “slap in the face” of contemporary “public taste,” Keats announces with Endymion a “poetics [that] remains to be written.” Indeed, the craft of the poem might be a measure of its contemporaneity in that it opens onto possibilities of the “now” that are not reducible to its historical values.

Keywords:   contemporary, Endymion, Keats, poetics
