John Keats is one of the best-loved, admired, and most frequently studied Romantic poets, though he wrote only three volumes of poetry in his short life. This extraordinary biography looks at how Keats developed as a poet against the backdrop of the major events of his life. John Keats follows the poet through intense family ties and friendships, a medical apprenticeship and subsequent decision to pursue poetry, participation in the literary circles of London, travels within Britain, illness, and finally, death from tuberculosis at age 25. A vivid and authoritative introduction to Keats's remarkable life, John Keats is filled with photographs of landscapes and cityscapes from his life, portraits of the poet and his family, evocative paintings, and manuscripts of his works and letters.

Here, in this book, is a presentation of Keats's story: an account with pictures and in detail of his years as a medical student, his gift for friendship, his care for his brothers, and particularly for Tom whose death from tuberculosis preceded Keats's own, his walking tour to the English Lake District and into Scotland, his love, desperate, ecstatic and cut off by illness, and above all, his total and passionate commitment to poetry. Keats lived poetry: the reading of it, the writing of it. The Wordsworth Trust here places Keats's achievement within its cultural context with a special emphasis on the art - the paintings, the watercolours and the prints - that inspired him, and that he inspired.About the Author:
