    I'm doing that.

    I'm actually just about to start my revision for it, so if you could share some of your notes I would really appreciate it!

    Also if you have any notes on any of the other Keats poems as well, that would be great.

    Ask away, I might remember something.

    it seems to describe the manual workers' strapping bodies being reduced by corporal punishment...

    What do you mean 'strapping bodies'???

    Also, 'proud-quivered' refers to a case of darts (a 'quiver') I think, but i don't understand how that makes sense in the context!

    'strapping' is an English word which means impressive, proud, manly etc.

    a 'quiver' is a container for arrows...although in the next section he refers to the seal punctured with darts....

    I know, but I mean when the workers are described with having 'proud-quivered loins', what does that mean, like how can they have proud body parts that... look like sacks of arrows?! Do you understand what this bit means? Maybe I just got it wrong lol

    it is rather obscure isn't it ? perhaps he was referring to the strapping manly legs of the workers being encased in high leather boots ?
