‘If Mine Had Been the Painter’s Hand': When Wordsworth and Keats re/un-write Paintings

Abstract : This essay focuses on two poems in which a speaker is inspired by paintings and confronts them with his own response to reality, at a time when Wordsworth was mourning the death of his brother John at sea, and when Keats was grappling with the matter of including his awareness of human suffering into his poetry, which until then had been mostly escapist.
