What a Fancy Way to Say You Like Reading

John Keats' poem "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer."

"Much I have travell'd in the realms of gold,
And many goodly states and kingdoms seen:
Round many western islands have I been" (lines 1-3)

I really like these lines because it shows how wonderful a poem can be and also a good metaphor. I thought Keats picked a perfect metaphor for writing a poem about reading a translated version of The Odyssey, which is also about a journey.

I also loved how magical he made reading seem. I wish everyone could realize just how great reading can be. Because believe it or not, not every one is as in love with reading as us english majors are. lol
