: : Why does the poet want to go to the world of the nightingale, why does he decide not to/decides to die?
: I suppose he wants to go there just because he does not like the place (hospital) where he is. As for the world of the nightingale, it seems to exist only in his imagination:
: 'But on the viewless wings of Poesy...'
: and he does not decide not to go there but it escapes him:
: 'Forlorn! the world is like a bell
: To toll me back from thee to my sole self!
: Adieu! The fancy cannot cheat so well
: As she is fam'd to do, deceiving elf.'
: For my part I was wise enough not to officially study literature, so that I would not have to write 'papers' on poems but could only read and enjoy them. If you could say or explain in plain prose anything what makes a poem there would not have been much need to write it.
