An Interpretation of Keats's Endymion by Henry Clement Notcutt (1865 - 1935).


Endymion is the largest work by John Keats and was composed between April and November 1817. When it was published in April 1818 the critical reception was almost universally hostile. Since that time, many readers have found the poem dense and inaccessible, and have preferred to focus on the occasional gems of poetic commentary for which it has become famous.

Feeling that the poem was both undervalued and misunderstood, in 1919 Professor Clement Notcutt published a lengthy essay, which could be considered a “user’s guide” to Endymion. He sums up his intent in the introduction:
A careful study of Endymion made some ten years ago led to the conclusion that there was more of allegorical significance in the poem than had hitherto been recognised, but the effort to trace that significance was only partially successful. Further study since that time has gradually opened up the way to the interpretation that is worked out in the following pages. It is probable that there are details in the story the meaning of which still lies hidden, but it may at least be hoped that enough has been discovered to win for the poem its rightful place among the not very numerous examples in English poetry of well-wrought allegory.

In 1921 Notcutt published a further essay entitled The Story of Glaucus in Keat’s Endymion, which has been included in this recording.

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Algy,
I'll set this up for you. Since you have a DPL, I will move this to Going Solo.
Cheers!

I have noticed that the text for the first five sections was not scanned correctly - some words on the margins of pages have been cut off.

There is an alternate version on the Internet Archive, which displays all the text, but is very faint in places:

Hi Algy,
I updated the project for that source text. Let me know if it isn't right.
Cheers!

This is interesting, but he's really trying to fudge the lack of evidence for a couple of his points!

A couple of tweaks:

13.14-13.16. Top of page 15, first line of quotation:
Who, for [heard for the] very sport of heart...

35.56-35.58. Page 25, last line of second block quotation:
For [heard with] nothing but a dream?

PL notes for section 2:

14.04-14.09. Indented quotation at bottom of p. 34. Extra word added:
...so [that] I may do the deed
That my own soul has to itself decreed.

32.09-32.13. Longer indented quotation on p. 42:
And then the water, into [heard in] stubborn streams
Collecting...

41.41-41.46. Indented quotation at top of p. 47:
For other, good or bad, hatred and [heard or] tears
Have become indolent...

43.09-43.19. Mid-paragraph of last paragraph, p. 47:
It is evident that the journey [heard study] of Endymion suggests a much more extensive study of classical literature than Keats ever had the opportunity of carrying out.
