Editorial Reviews

MLA - Walter H. Evert and Jack W. Rhodes
Among comprehensive critical studies of the past twenty years, Stuart M. Sperry's Keats the Poet has been a standard reference, rooted in mainstream criticism but pointing the way to much that became central in the revisionary criticism of the years since its publication.

"A book of great and possibly final importance in Keats studies. . . . "The Times Literary Supplement

Library Journal
Not a straight biography, Sperry relates Keats's development as a poet through a reflection of 18th- and 19th-century thought. LJ 's reviewer asserted that ``anyone pursuing Keats studies will have to refer to this book because of its excellent critical summaries of previous Keats scholarship and its new insights'' ( LJ 8/73).
