Autumn has to be the most overlooked season of the year There are plenty of literary pieces on the rejuvenating spring the beauty of summer and the seemingly dreary winter but this is the first poem I have read about the splendor of autumn John Keats fully recognizes autumns importance as he touches on the amazing things that occur during the harvest season To illustrate the amazing things that take place in autumn Keats uses personification to bring autumn to life in the form of soft haired girl who doesnt recognize her beauty or impact on nature In the first stanza of To Autumn Keats uses a vast amount of imagery to force the reader to stop and reflect on the wondrous things that happen each autumn In the midst of Keats description of autumn comes the first evidence of personification Keats tells us that the sun and autumn are great bosom friends That they work together in order to achieve the ripening of the fruit the opening of the flowers and the plumping of gourds In stanza two Keats uses stronger personification to give birth to a figure of a womannamely autumn He claims this woman is everywhere if you just look for her Keats explains autumn is sitting on a granary floor meaning the ripened grain that is stored in the granary is autumn He says you can find autumn sound asleep in a furrow with her soft hair blowing in the wind asleep in the furrow meaning autumn is the reason why the plows are making the furrow He says autumn is lounging by a brook and even watching apple cider being made in a cider press again the cider is a direct result of autumns presence In the last stanza is where the reader will discover autumns insecurity with herself Autumn wants to know where the songs of spring went and to me this means autumn wants to know what happened
