Format: Paperback
I am without a doubt John keats' greatest fan and so i approached this book with previous knowledge of Keats' life and works. However i must say that this is the best book regarding John Keats that i have ever read. From his poverty and ill stricken background to his famous death in Rome at the age of 25, this book covers all the major events in Keats' life. It is beautifully written and easy to follow. It is full of fantastic information and is a MUST have for any Keats fan.
This book gives us an opportunity to almost personally meet the man who has become one of the greatest poets that ever lived, and in my opinion..
The greatest man that ever breathed!

I first read this book as a student around 20 years ago. It was, and is the finest biography of Keats available. It tells a fascinating story well; I can still remember the feeling of being drawn in and gripped by this masterly telling. Having seen the price on Amazon I'm only sorry I sold my own copy several years ago!
