Read full description of the books Keats: Poems:
Some poems read as tragic premonitions, others celebrate the world's natural beauty, and with the poet's eye forever fixed on the heavens, can be termed sky verse. Keats is fond of mythology and classical allusions. His seasonal tributes are compelling. Then, the monstrous women emerge, the belle dame and Lamia. He is also contemplative in his metapoetry, attempting to grapple with his perplexing art. Haunting narratives like "Lamia" and "Isabella or The Pot of Basil" are imaginatively morbid. "The Eve of Saint Agnes" is a poem where the images are most arresting. In "Hyperion" the story is opaque, losing its earthiness it slips into obscurity. His letters to Fanny Brawne and to Charles Brown are sad, especially in his final farewell (the latter) where he accepts the cruel death that awaits him. Although Keats was not celebrated in his lifetime, his verse belongs to one who loved poetry and there are many memorable odes, lyrics and narratives that remain as a testament to his talents.
Read information about the authorJohn Keats was one of the principal poets of the English Romantic movement. During his short life, his work received constant critical attacks from the periodicals of the day, but his posthumous influence on poets such as Alfred Tennyson has been immense. Elaborate word choice and sensual imagery characterize Keats's poetry, including a series of odes that were his masterpieces and which remain among the most popular poems in English literature. Keats's letters, which expound on his aesthetic theory of "negative capability", are among the most celebrated by any writer.
