This paper explains that, whether or not it is a fragment, "The Fall of Hyperion" is somewhat a necessary component, to the precursor "Hyperion", which completes the poet's thoughts concerning history, language, art, poetry and mankind. The author points out that, in a sense, "Hyperion" and "The Fall of Hyperion" represent the life of John Keats, the poet; while the theme is still the same, the poet is definitely different. The paper stresses that "Hyperion" and "The Fall of Hyperion" remain faithful to the romantic movement that John Keats helped establish; however, they move in almost different directions--a talent Keats mastered with his text. Several quotations.

From the Paper:

"Later, as the poet describes Apollo, we see less of a fully described man and more of a creature that allows the poet to expand his imaginative technique. In short, his character adds to the sensuality we are experiencing. An example of this style can be seen when the poet writes, "Beside the osiers of a rivulet,/Full ankle-deep in lilies of the vale" (III.33-5). These images enhance the style and theme of "Hyperion," which is one that is grand, beautiful, and hopeful. Hope for attaining truth and beauty do come with a price, however."
