Résumé : Examining the poetry of Allen Ginsberg in the light of that of John Keats, the possible connections between 'Siesta in Xbalba' - a long poem by Ginsberg that received much more critical attention in the eighties than today - and Keats's so-called Great Odes are investigated. 'Siesta' is here read as a composite mainly recycling 'Ode on a Grecian Urn' and 'Ode to a Nightingale', whose themes and motifs Ginsberg both preserves and subverts. This is the first attempt to conflate 'Siesta' with Keats's Great Odes. © W. S. Maney & Son Ltd 2013.
