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'.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. B. Sharp on 17 Dec 2000
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Keats: Selected Poems and letters helped me very much completing my English Literature A level on Enduring Love. The content was lucid because it contained straight forward notes on the opposite page. I found the introduction of the poet's work enchanting and it gave me real insight to the writer. The most helpful asset to this book was the brilliant tips from an A level chief examiner and guidance to essay writing. I recommend this book if you are doing an English A level, or if you enjoy reading romantic poems and love letters.

It warrants reading, rereading, putting away, rediscovering and reading over again. It makes you think and that's worth th price alone.
