  1. Answer  :    This poem is a revolt against the commonplace reality. According to Keats the object of beauty differs from an ordinary object. The ordinary object appeals us only temporarily. Its effect is short lived and its loveliness decreases with the passage of time. But the object of beauty appeals to our senses permanently. It cannot be destroyed by time and space. It is a temporal and its loveliness does not fade. It is a ray of light and hope that consoles man in his miseries and misfortunes Sunday, June 09, 2013
