Evil is Truth, Truth, Evil John Keats brilliantly uses poetic form and descriptive language to attempt to evoke interest in an inherently uninteresting subject, as well as support a hidden agenda, with his poem, “Ode on a Grecian Urn”. The three primary tools Keats uses, from which we can analyze his strategy, are the title of the poem, diction conforming to rhyme scheme, and literary devices.
