The usage of enjambment makes the author sound like he is observing and describing the urnĀ in real life. The descriptions are very specific and by adding enjambments, one can make the transition from one line to the next, and one stanza to the next, much easier. Keats uses two different types of pronouns, the modern second person singular ‘you’ and the Old English second person singulars ‘thou, thy’ which alludes to two different subjects. The speaker’s inquiry engages the reader in asking the philosophical sides the urn alludes to, and is meant to also integrate the readers into the poem as an active audience.
