This review is from: Life of John Keats His Life and Poetry, his Friends, Critics and After-fame (Kindle Edition)
As a writer of poetry I was interested in reading this book about Keats to get some idea as to what it was that makes him so well known. I don't personally find his work especially to my taste and wonder how he came to make any kind of living at it. This book gives me an idea about the man, those who supported and adnmired his work and the time he lived in. The writer is known to be about the best there is in giving an insight to Keats the man and does well in conveying the mood of the time toward him and his battle with illness, together with his relocating to Italy where he finished his short life. There is another account of Keats that I have that takes some of its information from this book and I therefore recommend this as the preferred account.
