I spent £9.99 hoping for a definitive, well put together collection of one of the greatest ever poets, only to end up with an ebook that I might as well have downloaded from Project Gutenberg for free. Much has been written about problems with poetry and ebook readers, but many independent publishers have paid attention to these issues and brought out beautiful poetry ebooks that are a pleasure to read. One would think that, considering the price, Penguin would have put as much thought in when bringing Keats to Kindle. Don't be fooled by the price, this is not a premium ebook, it is a cynical attempt by Penguin to demand more money than the paperback cover price while putting zero effort into the Kindle conversion. Buy the paperback or download a free or budget version.
The explanatory and textual notes are in a section of the Appendices. There are no links from the poems to the relative notes - so this can be bit of a pain switching between the notes for a poem and the poem itself - This is where having 2 Kindles can be extremely useful. I keep the Notes open on a Kindle Paperwhite, and read the actual poems on a Kindle 8.9 Fire HDX. So, in my view, at £3.59, better value than £0.00 for a Project Gutenberg version!
