Kent, ''On the Third Stanza of Keats's 'Ode on a Grecian Urn''' -- Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)

Kent points out that various people have focused on certain aspects of Keats's "Ode on a Grecian Urn" and although those focus on certain topics, (repition) no one seemed to pay attention to the lack of clauses that were absent in the third stanza. Also, Kent wants the reader to pay attention to the excessive use of apostrophes. Kent doesn't only want the reader to pay attention to the clauses, but he wants the reader to pay attention to the words surrounding the apostrophes. Kent's also wants the reader to look at the repition of specific words, such as, "happy and for ever."

I think Kent's meaning behind his essay is he wants the reader to pay closer attention to the words and style of the text, which then may help the reader to understand what Keats's message was in his writing "Ode on a Grecian Urn."
