    I think this is a pretty good poem. It starts out as simply a descriptive poem, then the thing with the bear turns it into a fantasy. As a whole, once I get past the jarring image of a waltzing grizzly bear, it is light and dreamy and joyous.

    Hello!
    I haven't been in this forum from a long time. Actually, I studie for my exam i pass this week.
    I have a question: what do you think about versification? It seems to be a little hard or do you simply need to let you to dive in the atmosphere of the poem?

    A flip response would be, that category 1 is normal practice (and I would add, placing the work in a/the wider cultural context) - and that as the critic's ego/status increases, he starts to view it as progressively in the other three categories! Book cover gives the game away; 'LEAVIS on Milton'.
