The psycho-physiological effect of the elements of speech in relation to poetry
Givler, Robert Ch.
Keats VI. A thûrn üs töö thü bow töö fländry bide. From 
UA flow’ry band to bind us to the earth.” 
Very rhythmic line; Chaucer’s poetry came to mind. Imagery of a high 
tower; romantic scene, maybe some battle being narrated; romantic and 
idyllic. “Flaundry” a strange word; thinks of “Flanders” and “laundry” 
at the same time. 
Keats. Experiment VII. So cooling very still was and the 
air. From “The air was cooling and so very still.” 
Imagery of the twilight. Visual imagery of a bright green color. Cool 
sensation in the mouth. Very conscious of lips. 
Keats VIII. The dwindled of its trace and edgings brim. 
From “The trace and dwindled edgings of its brim.” 
Imagery of snow; “trace” a “cold” word. Feels lips to be very active. 
Keats IX. Across the move would blue a little cloud. From 
“A little cloud would move across the blue.” 
Gives an inane feeling; “move” and “blue” are “sticky” words; “cloud” 
doesn’t go with them. Cannot say “little cloud” fast enough to suit the line. 
The word “across” is too hard; the “k” sound sticks. Lips rather prominent 
in consciousness. 
Keats X. A bower quiet for us and a sleep. 
Odd that the gutteral should have been used,—“quiet.” “Bower” the only 
“quiet” sound. Uses too much breath for the meaning. 
Keats XI. “With lucent syrops tinct with cinnamon.” 
Thinks of toddy and cordials; just the opposite kind of a scene came up. 
Much taste imagery; visual imagery in bright colors. The line hisses too 
much; imagery of peppermint. Tickles the tongue. 
Keats XII. “That broodest o'er the troubled sea of mind.” 
Mind in a quiet uncertainty. Thought of Byron, and Hamlet; visualized a 
cliff. Feeling of a cosmic melancholy. Gives a gentle melancholy; “mind” 
too abrupt. 
Byron IV. Shün dole ow rod thü närk blöre ö land ëëp. From 
“Roll on thou dark and deep blue ocean, roll.” 
Visual imagery of some one on a rock by the sea ; sounded like a foreign 
language. Subject A.—Imagery of the ocean, in a storm; the jerky effect 
here is justifiable. B.—Imagery of a ship on the ocean in stormy weather; 
seemed to take more force. D.—Imagery of the sea; heavy waves; dark 
•colors. F.—Sea imagery; “nark” is very hard. “Blore o” is the blowing of 
a horn. K.—Great deal of resonance ; no imagery. L.—Sea concepts aroused ; 
thinks of Norsemen, etc.; very thrilling. M.—Feels the roar of the ocean; 
visual imagery very rich. P.—Counting bothered a little ; imagery of Hoi-
