Overview

This collection, with poems published in 1817, Endymion, and poems published in 1820, includes his best known works, such as: Ode to a Nightgale, Ode to a Grecian Ur, Ode to Psyche, Lamia, Eve of St. agnes, Ode on Melanchoy, To Autumn, and Hyperion. According to Wikipedia: "John Keats (1795 - 1821) was one of the principal poets of the English Romantic movement. During his short life, his work received constant critical attacks from periodicals of the day, but his posthumous influence on poets such as Alfred Tennyson has been immense. Elaborate word choice and sensual imagery characterize Keats's poetry, including a series of odes that were his masterpieces and which remain among the most popular poems in English literature. Keats's letters, which expound on his aesthetic theory of "negative capability"[1], are among the most celebrated by any writer."
