Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Keats and History overturns assumptions about the historical and political concerns of Keats' poems by bringing together exciting new work by British and American scholars. Thirteen essays address the historical dimensions of Keats' poems and letters, and open fresh perspectives on his achievement. Keats' writings are approached through politics, social history, feminism, economics, historiography, stylistics, aesthetics, and mathematical theory.
