Book Description

Published in 1891, this collection of Keats' correspondence was assembled by art historian and critic Sir Sidney Colvin (1845-1927). The 164 letters included in the book were written to Keats' closest friends and family. The book also includes a preface which supplies biographical details of Keats' correspondents. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

John Keats was born in 1795, the son of a livery-stable keeper. An orphan by the age of fourteen, he was apprenticed to a surgeon for a time, but gave up medicine for poetry. His luxuriant early work was famously savaged by the critics, but he remained assured in his conviction that he would eventually "be among the English poets," and his volume of 1820 was more favorably viewed. Keats's longed-for marriage to Fanny Brawne was prevented by the onset of the tuberculosis that killed him, at the age of twenty-six, in 1821.

This collection is comprehensive and is in an easy-to-read format which enhances the content of the letters themselves. These are some of the most poignant letters ever written by one of the true prodigies of English Romantic literature. A must-have for genuine lovers of literature.

The Keats letter should be part of ever good literary education. For sanctimonious reasons, he refuses to include the letters to Fanny Brawne! This edition should be in circulation. Even free, it's an expensive waste of your time.

I don't remember what led me to be curious about John Keats, but that's why I bought this book and Keats' biography. The Letters were interesting - in that Victorian style. When I was a teenager, I read a number of British novels written in the Victorian style. So as I read Keats' letters, it seemed familiar. Some of it was revealing about Keats' character, but the style of the writing actually seems somewhat obtuse to me now.
