This book overturns received ideas about Keats as a poet of "beauty" and "sensuousness", highlighting the little studied political perspectives of his works. Roe sets out to recover the vivacious, pugnacious voices of Keats's poetry, and traces the complex ways in which his poems responded to and addressed their contemporary world.
