Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Not actually the poems at all, but an analysis of them by British scholar of literature Blades. He selects a poem or extract of one by Keats (1795-1821) to comment on interesting themes and significant stylistic features. He then locates the poetry within the context of the poet's life and period, chiefly by surveying his letters. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
