    Post Introductio

    Peace be with you, I intended to write an essay analysing a poem of Keats, what can you say about this Introduction of my essay:
    In this essay I intend to analyse the poem ''Much have I traveled in the realms of gold'' which is writen by Keats in terms of content, structure, style and sound effects.

    Thanks for your help.

    Your original sentence introduces an ambiguity - that the poem was written by Keats in terms of content, structure and sound effects.

    Peace be with you, where did you find the ambiguity? I meant by " in terms of content, structure, style and sound effects" that those are the points that I will analyse in my essay. Can you please help me with this?

    Re: Introductio

    The ambiguity that Keats wrote the poem in terms of content, structure and sound effects, not you analysing them the same manner.

    Of course that possibility does not make sense but your sentence would be clearer with the words shifted as Raymott has done (I prefer the lst one).

    not a teacher

    I've rephrased it twice in my original post. I've explained the ambiguity, as has tedtmc. I'm not sure what your current question is.
