Summary

This sourcebook offers the ideal introduction to the work of John Keats, a central figure in English Romanticism and one of the most popular poets in the literary canon.
The sourcebook is arranged in four sections: Contexts, Interpretations, Key Poems and Further Reading. Each combines clear introductory passgaes with relevant reprinted documents. Key features include:

  • a chronology of Keats's life and excerpts from his letters
  • an overview of the criticism of his work, from early responses to important recent essays
  • excerpts from a range of critical texts, with explanatory headnotes
  • extensively annotated full texts or key passages from Keats's most widely studied poems
  • helpful recommendations for further reading.

Cross-referencing throughout the volume highlights the links between texts, contexts and reception, enabling even beginners to make original and informed readings of Keats's époque-changing work.
