"Beauty is truth, truth is beauty."
The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives. Beauty, the splendour of truth, is a gracious presence when the imagination contemplates intensely the truth of its own being or the visible world, and the spirit which proceeds out of truth and beauty is the holy spirit of joy. These are realities and these alone give and sustain life.

A man standing in silence in a museum observes a Greek urn. From the urn comes the silent voice of the past. But it is not just any man that observes, and neither is it just any urn. It is the English poet John Keats , standing in a room of the British Museum in London, and the urn is a product of his imagination. His love for classical art and his spectacular imagination made the creation of this great poetic work possible.
Scholars have been unable to agree to whom the last thirteen lines of the poem are addressed. Arguments can be made for any of the four most obvious possibilities, -poet to reader, urn to reader, poet to urn, poet to figures on the urn. The issue is further confused by the change in quotation marks between the original manuscript copy of the ode and the published edition.
