“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.”

John Keats

 

John Keats was a 19th-century Romantic poet. His poetry was not well received during his lifetime, but by the start of the 20th-century, he had become one of the most beloved English poets.

 

In this 1848 collection of his letters, the first of its kind, editor Richard Monckton Milnes (1809-85) sets out to show the poets true colors through his personal correspondence. Adding insightful commentary and context, he builds up a portrait of an extraordinary young man whose epistolary style is often humorous and salted with miniature flights of fantasy. Volume one charts his early life up to 1819. Volume two traces his demise and includes a selection of his work.

 

This fine printing includes a black and white full-page portrait of Keats.
