Abstract

This study discusses the individual-nature relationship in John Keats’s “Ode on Melancholy” in light of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poetic theories concerning this concept which are incubated by his poem, “Dejection: An Ode”. Furthermore, it presents, in a poetic expression, a critical analysis of Keats’s ode as strong mutual relationship between individual and nature. The sensory relationship of Keats with nature is the main focus of this study keeping into consideration that is identical with Coleridge’s poetic theories. Coleridge’s opinions concerning the individual-nature relationship are exposed consistently in “Dejection: An Ode”. The relationship starts, according to Coleridge, when the individual perceives nature then ascends to form spiritual unity and becomes one with it. In Keats’s “Ode on Melancholy”, the individual-nature relationship is a beneficial one that is the unification is achieved due to the active role of both of them which makes it easy to apply Coleridge’s theories that imply the same point of view
