    John Keats And Bob Dylan Why Judgments Matter, gives many examples of why value judgments are important in our lives. I feel that value judgments are as equally important and it should be evident why after briefly explaining Friths examples and my own as well. In his first example, Mr. Frith gives insight to David Hares comment, "In the end, Keats was just better than Bob Dylan". The media, without delay, misjudged the true meaning of Hares statement and transposed it into a debate of value. Although Mr. Frith did not agree with the medias tactics, he did agree with the value debate. Mr. Frith Feels that value judgments"organize social relations" in our life, and he further proves this point ...

    Ode On A Grecian Urn-John Keats Ode on a Grecian Urn-John Keats The second stanza in Keats Ode on a Grecian Urn begins with the statement, Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard/Are sweeter. Keats views art as something that is eternal and lets you experience whats happening in the painting.

Of course, in Keats time there were no CDs or cassettes. In the same stanza, ...
