Well in Eve of St Agnes "ermite" is the word he used to discribe "Hermit". He likens Porphoro to a Hermit making a "pilgramige" to his Madaline, linking to his belifes in love being a religon.
Fell free to correct me, I have only studyed him a term :oops:

Don't worry, I haven't studied Keats at all in any class (as yet). Perhaps that's why I still like him.

Yeah, once you start being forced to learn something it becmes a real turn off - it almost put me off Shakespeare for life, having to read it when I was in school.

I'm glad I didn't have to study Keats in school, otherwise I would have hated him :roll:
