Editorial Reviews


Keats's letters represent one of the most sustained reflections on the poet's art. Yet apart from this, they are great works of literature in their own right, being written with gusto and sometimes a painful candour. Keats interweaves his personal plight with the history of a Britain emerging from the long years of the Napoleonic Wars into a world of political unrest, profound social change, and commercial expansion. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just received this book and have browsed through Keats letters. He died at age 25 of TB. What a shame. The letters I have read so far are very touching. I bought, along with this, a book of his poems. I would recommend buying the both as I did.
