A Sumptuous Gathering of Seasonal Recipes, Culinary Poetry, and Literary Fare People of cold-wintered climates have fantasized for centuries about the warmth, sensuality, and spiciness of exotic Morocco.
Romantic artists, musicians, and poets often depicted such fantasies. John Keats, the youngest and most sensual of the British Romantic poets, exemplified this imaginative preoccupation—at one point with a wonderfully gustatory flair.
The poem highlights his worldly approach to spirituality, reflecting his fine knack for setting up evocative contrasts. Keats glorifies the senses, including the sense of taste. Set in the depths of winter, this tale of heightened warmth and love, exotic feasting, and sensual delight is made ironic by interplay with the spiritual.
But we must wait for the abundant banquet in this poem. In the bitter cold, with his natural affinity for fasting and asceticism, the Beadsman prays for immediate ascent to heaven—without even the intervention of death: Madeline, the heroine, loves Porphyro, a sworn enemy of her family.

Bridesmaid-superstitionists of the past century believed that if they placed a piece of fresh wedding cake under their pillows, they would dream of their future husbands. Oh yeah, by the way, dreamers: She must also "couch supine their beauties, lily white" i.
As Madeline sleeps under guard of superstition naked, on her backPorphyro makes his way across the moors to the hostile castle. He slips past oblivious drunken revelers, in pursuit of his private union.
Unlike in Christianity, medieval Muslim theology involved a conception of heaven as a realm of sensual delight and therefore included no injunction against pleasure: The reference to "manna" recalls the heavenly food that God provided Moses and his people as they were tested in the desert.
Puritan poets such as Andrew Marvell celebrated the purity of this sacral sustenance. These lovely sounds, these vividly visual images "candied apple, quince, and plum, and gourd"; "And lucent syrops, tinct with cinnamon"and tactile terms such as "smooth" and "silken"—all heighten the full range of our sensual responses, not least of all our gustatory response.
By the way, are you, like us, wondering how Porphyro manages to arrange and prepare this sensuous, sacrificial feast? Where does he find the exotic ingredients? Is the closet some kind of larder stocked with expensive items brought in over distant trade routes? Where does Porphyro find the equipment he needs?
The poet is slipping one by us, just as Porphyro has slipped by the castle revelers and nurse Angela!
Keats believed in the spiritual power of the Imagination to help us escape our mortal confines; and we are within the fairy realm of a quiet chamber, surrounded by a drunken ball, within an imaginary castle: But only Madeline is dreaming.
How does the story end? Madeline wakes from her ardent fantasy within the "iced stream" of her sleep to see Porphyro exactly as she had envisioned him in her dream.SparkNotes are the most helpful study guides around to literature, math, science, and more.
