John Keats is regarded as one of the greatest poets of the Romantic movement. But when he died at the age of only twenty-five, his writing had been attacked by critics and his talent remained largely unrecognized.
Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is edited and introduced by Dr Andrew Hodgson.
This volume, Selected Poems
, reflects his extraordinary creativity and versatility, drawing on the collections published during his lifetime as well as posthumously. He wrote in many different forms - from his famous Odes to ballads such as 'La Belle Dame Sans Merci', and the epic Hyperion. Together, they celebrate a poet who wrote with unsurpassed insight and emotion about art and beauty, love and loss, suffering and nature. A truly radical poet -- Lesley McDowell * Independent * He left behind him some of Britain's best-loved poetry -- Alison Flood * Guardian * Keats's jazz-like improvisations, which give us, like no other writing in English, the actual rush of a man thinking, a mind hurtling forward unpredictably and sweeping us along -- Morris Dickstein * New York Times * The imaginative impact of Keats's life - his "orphaned" childhood, his letters, his poetry, his friendships, his illness, his agonizing love affair - has continued unbroken for nearly two hundred years * New York Review of Books *
