Overview

John Keats survives today as the archetypal Romantic genius who died tragically early. The rapid development of Keats's poetic skills is powerfully displayed in this selection, which includes his first major poem, "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer," as well as "Endymion," "The Eve of St. Agnes," "La Belle Dame sans Merci," and "The Fall of Hyperion." Throughout, Keats's preoccupying themes of love, art, sorrow, the natural world, and the nature of the imagination magnificently emerge. In his superb Introduction, John Barnard discusses the focus of the anthology, which emphasizes Keats's place as a "second-generation Romantic."

Widely regarded as one of the greatest versifiers in the English language, John Keats (1795-1821) published three volumes of poems in his lifetime: Poems (1817); Endymion (1818); and Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St. Agnes, and Other Poems (1820). He died of tuberculosis in Rome in 1821.
John Barnard is Professor of English at the University of Leeds, England.

I can't understand this book
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
First: If you are going to publish a book the least you can do is spell check it. There was so many grammical errors that it made it quite difficult to read Second: make up your mind about how it is going to be written. Half is in poetry form, half is paragraph form. I would not recommend this book to any one.

This version of the book has many typos, at least one on almost every page. But it is still very readable! John Keats is an amazing poet whos poetry was popular in the 1800s I believe. He uses great detail and his poems are thick in metaphors, but not at all difficult to understand. I highly recommend reading Keats' work but splurge a few dollars and get a better version.

Welp, didn't read yet, but I'm about to. Seems pretty good. In response to 'where should I even begin', that paraghraph poetry is called prose poetry...
