Keats believed that the deepest meaning of life lay in the apprehension of material beauty, although his later works reveal his fascination with a world of death and decay. He spent the last part of his life in Rome, where he died at the tragically young age of 25.

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.
