Keats

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,- that is all/ ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.” John Keats

This quote which is from ‘Ode of a Grecian urn’ by John Keats it is one of my many favourite pieces of poetry. (Even though I am one who leans more toward William Blake and Emily Dickson) I use it describe the moment I realised that  I wanted to be writer weather it was for personal use or for a living. The elegance and beauty of the English language and the literature which has truly captivated me as a reader. I have always had  that inner drive to read but, I never appreciated it nor did I reflect on it. As I started to move away from the likes of John Marsden (Not that he is a bad author) to George Orwell and Plato. I have released the power of language and the importance of it. I now appreciate as well as reflect on the pieces I read weather it be an article or essay.

Poetic beauty.
