John Keats: poetry
Read the text below and find the six mistakes in it.

Unlike the novels of Shelley and Byron, Keats's lyrical poems are not fragments of an ongoing narrative history. The odes written in 1829 show some general experiences, but these only make up the background. The personal pronoun 'you' that he uses is not linked to a specific person living in his own time, but stands for a universal reference. Moreover, Coleridge's pantheistic conviction is absent from Keats's poems.
