Does anyone have any examples of synaesthesia or other linguistic devices being used in John Keats' poetry? I'm struggling to find many (as i have 2 other exams before it) If anyone can help i would really appreciate it. Thank you xx

grecian urn is filled (flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme...heard melodies are sweet.) as is nightingale (in some melodious plot of beechen green...Tasting of flora and the country green...O for a beaker full of the warm South)! The 'silver snarling' trumpets in st agne's eve.

The main devices are:

assonance
dissonance
echoes
sound patterens
lacuna
alliteration
rhyme scheme
synaesthesia
run on lines
caesura
anaphora
exclaimation
invokation
apostrophe
repetition

Umm, Eve of St Agnes is full of it.
'snarling silver trumpets' (as already metioned)
'honey'd middle of the night'
the window 'threw warm gules' of light on her
etc etc.
