One of the leading figures of the English Romantic movement, and an inspiration for many future poets, John Keats' works such as "Ode to a Nightingale," "To Autumn," and "Ode on a Grecian Urn" are among the best-loved poems of all time. In this new biography, Robert Mighall charts the life of this brilliant poet, from the premature deaths of both his parents, to his early writings and unkind treatment from critics, his travels and friendship with the Shelleys, and his untimely death at the age of 25. Interspersed in his life story are extracts from Keats’s poems to offer a unique insight into both the man and his work.
