Book Description

July 26, 2009 0199555737 978-0199555734 Reissue
Keats's letters have long been regarded as an extraordinary record of poetic development. According to T. S. Eliot, Keats's letters are "the most notable and most important ever written by any English poet." They represent one of the most sustained reflections on the poet's art we have from any of the major English poets. Yet quite apart from the light they throw on the poetry, they are great works of literature in their own right. Written with gusto and occasionally painful candor, they show a powerful intelligence struggling to come to terms with its own mortality. Sometimes bitterly jealous in love and socially and financially insecure, at others playful and confident of his own greatness, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Remarkable Wordsmith October 13, 2011
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.
