Abstract

In this research, the formalist poems "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg and "Ode to a Nightingale" by John Keats are compared. With an emphasis on poetic devices, writing styles, and phrases, the research investigates how form and content relate in these poems. Russian Formalism, a critical method that looks at the literary components that add to a work's meaning, is used in this research. Through an analysis of language use, symbolism, and imagery, the research demonstrates both poets' skills. The results demonstrate the poets' command of language, symbolism, and imagery as well as the value of formalism in understanding their artistic works. This study highlights the value of formalistic techniques in literary analysis while expanding its understanding of Keats' and Ginsberg's writings.
