More About the Author

John Keats was born in London in 1795. He trained as a surgeon and apothecary but quickly abandoned this profession for poetry.

His first volume of poetry was published in 1817, soon after he had begun an influential friendship with the Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. His first collection and the subsequent long poem Endymion recieved mixed reviews, and sales were poor.

In late 1818 he moved to Hampstead where he met and fell deeply in love with his neighbour Fanny Brawne. During the following year Keats wrote some of his most famous works, including 'The Eve of St. Agnes', 'Ode to a Nightingale' and 'La Belle Dame sans Merci'.

He was however increasingly plagued by ill-health and financial troubles, which led him to break off his engagement to Fanny. Soon after the publication of Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St Agnes and Other Poems in 1820, Keats left England for Italy in the hope that the climate would improve his health. But Keats was by this time suffering from advanced tuberculosis, and he died on February 23rd 1821.

On his request, Keats' tombstone reads only 'Here lies one whose name was writ in water'.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad, muddled up 21 Feb 2013

The first book was fine, but the second was jumbled out of order. I wasn't even sure the full text was present. I ended up deleting it from my Kindle and buying Complete Works of John Keats (Delphi Classics), which so far makes narrarive sense and also has nice pictures, besides the more accomplished Hyperion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Verse, but minor to moderate formatting issues 16 Jan 2011
By Thomas F. Plunkett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only other review of this says that it isn't in verse; at least on the Kindle 3 that isn't accurate. I compared this version side by side with the Modern Library Classics version and all the verse is identical. That being said, the first line of a stanza appears at the end of the previous stanza but indented over. I got used to this and eventually it didn't bother me. Occasionally a word that ends with "'d" will be modernized to end with "ed" and while this didn't bother me too much I can see how it could bother others.

These were the only issues I had with the version. The poem is one of Keats' best and this version is sufficient. I probably would have given it 3.5 if that had been possible.

The book is exactly what I expected...beautifully written by John Keats. I'm so happy to start my collection on my new Kindle Fire.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy: verse prints out as prose 13 Oct 2010
By James M. Rawley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The verse prints as prose. This should never have been offered. Sometimes it will be verse for a line or two, which makes the whole thing worse.
