Objects of Suspicion: Keats, ‘To Autumn’ and the Psychology of Romantic Surveillance

  title={Objects of Suspicion: Keats, ‘To Autumn’ and the Psychology of Romantic Surveillance},
  author={Richard Joseph Marggraf Turley},
Keats makes few explicit allusions to surveillance, but they are memorable, queasily attuned to asymmetries of power. Think of Porphyro’s unsuspected eye in the closet as Madeline disrobes in her bedchamber, or the ‘sly’ conspiring vision of Isabella’s brothers, or Lamia reconnoitering the nymph’s ‘secret bed’ before turning informant to Hermes.
