Overview

This Norton Critical Edition seeks to return Keats—one of the most beloved poets of the English language—to his cultural moment by tracking his emergence as a public poet.
For this reason, this volume presents the writings in the order of publication rather than composition. Readers can trace the poems through letters, reviews, and related material chronologically interleaved with the texts themselves. This edition offers extensive apparatus to help readers fully appreciate Keats’s poetry and legacy, including an introduction, headnotes, explanatory annotations, and a wealth of contextual documents. “Criticism” includes twelve important commentaries on Keats and his poetry, by Paul de Man, Marjorie Levinson, Grant F. Scott, Margaret Homans, Nicholas Roe, Stuart Sperry, Neil Fraistat, Jack Stillinger, James Chandler, Alan Bewell, and Jeffrey N. Cox.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It is hard to know what a viewer is going to want first, the letters Keats wrote to Brawne, or his poetry. This collection is notable for having 13 of the letters, but moreover for its arrangement by publication (or composition for unpublished work). Keats's letters (as well as reviews and other materials) are also interleaved in order. Thus, one can read the letters and around them read the poetry he composed. Reading the volume in order is akin to stepping into Keats's personal space, watching him compose and learn, react to reviews, and reach out to friends and family. Readers who want a complete collection of Keats's poetry can do no better than the edition edited by Jack Stillinger (Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1991).—Neal Wyatt, "RA Crossroads," BookSmack! 8/5/10
