Abstract

Keats’s Lamia is usually read as an ambiguous poem. The paper will focus on the causes of Lamia’s ambiguity. Her ambiguity presents Keats’s vacillation between two poetic realms—the beautiful and the sublime. And the poem tries to offer his solution to his dilemma. While Wordsworth prefers the sublime in Tintern Abbey and Intimations on Immortality, Keats offers a different choice in Lamia.
