John Keats interprets the nature of King Lear to be rather tedious He talks about golden-tongued Romance with serene lute which could easily be reflected in Lears tranquil half-witted mindset which fails to read between the lines He refers to Lears daughters Goneril Regan as innocent appearing yet seductive devils A good example of nothing imagery from the play is evident when Keats writes Shut up thing olden pages and be mute He is obviously telling us that Lear should keep his thoughts to himself and showing us that nothing is actually sometimes more productive than something useless Keats believes that Lear should leave before another destructive dispute conspires Adieu For once again the fierce dispute This is another example of nothing imagery because Lear would be better off doing nothing rather than doing something pointless and engaging in battle He thinks that Lears nature is a fierce battle between condemnation and impassioned clay What Keats could be attempting to say is that we as readers must burn through the play and understand what Shakespeare is actually telling us He continues with The bitter-sweet of this Shakespearean fruit This line could relate to the tragic happenings which occur throughout the book due to the ignorant attitudes of Lear and Gloucester Consequently the compassion returns to the play which completes the bitter-sweet term of Shakespeares fruitKeats seems to be asking our ancestors to help him in his daily life to avoid the mistakes made by Lear and uses his wandering through the storm like a deranged lunatic as an example Let me not wander in a barren dream is a good example of this He is obviously referring to Lears antics throughout the storm As Keats concludes this acclaimed sonnet he prays that should he succumb to mistakes similar to Lear did in his life that God grant him a second chance to obliterate them Give me new Phoenix wings to fly at my desireI
