Adonais and elegy. The structure it shares with Lycidas: the world is "empty and poor" now. The dead person's absence makes the world into a world of absence. But this is not a world suitable to that person. So he's in a better place. But I am born darkly, fearfully afar. Echoes of The Eve of St. Agnes at the end of Adonais. Neoplatonism. Dante. And so to The Triumph of Life. Terza rima. The question of how Triumph would have ended. Abrams's distortions. The opening of the poem.
