For all the obsessives.,
This review is from: Posthumous Keats: A Personal Biography (Hardcover)
I have had a weird obsession with Keats for 22 years. At the age of 15, when I was supposed to be reading Seamus Heaney in English, I flicked through the book and happened upon Keats instead. He looked so much more appealing in the picture and his tragic life captured my morbid 15 year old imagination. I have read several biographies, but in this book I have found the perfect way to revel in the delights of Keats, in everything about him that interests me - it's as if the writer has written it just for me! Part of my weird obsession involves getting in a time machine and meeting him [told you it was weird...] and I feel that this book is as close as I will get to that. It's almost certainly only for others equally obsessed though...My mother in law says she 'can't think of anything worse' to read...
