Garson, 'Bodily Harm" Keats's Figures in the 'Ode on a Grecian Urn''' -- Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)

"Apostrophe is an address to the absent as if present, the inanimate as if animate; a rhetorical question is one which no answer is expected. These are figures of power" (453).

Garson pays close attention to the grammer in Keats's poem. She takes all of the punctuation and somehow brings up a good argument. At times, she seems to both praise and negatively criticize Keat's poem. She also tried to claim that "the ode arouses two kinds of generic expectations..." I def. agree that the two she listed do exist but I feel the ode may arouse many more expectations...
