A Luxurious Leather Bound Masterpiece

Limited Edition - Collector's Edition. A great unique gift for yourself or for a loved one.
Part of the 100 Greatest Books Ever Written collection by Easton Press. Beautifully illustrated and bound in genuine leather. Keats's letters, which expound on his aesthetic theory of "negative capability", are among the most celebrated by any historical writer.

 

Over the course of his short life, John Keats (1795-1821) honed a raw talent into a brilliant poetic maturity. By the end of his brief career, he had written poems of such beauty, imagination and generosity of spirit, that he had - unwittingly - fulfilled his wish that he should 'be among the English poets after my death'. This new, wide-ranging selection of Keats's poetry has been selected by Claire Tomalin.

 

About the author

John Keats (1795-1821) is one of the greatest English poets and a key figure in the Romantic Movement. He has become the epitome of the young, beautiful, doomed poet. He wrote, among others, 'The Eve of St Agnes', 'La Belle Dame Sans Merci', 'Ode to a Nightingale' and 'To Autumn'. The group of five odes, which include 'Ode to a Nightingale', are ranked among the greatest short poems in the English language. Claire Tomalin was born in London in 1933. She was literary editor first of the New Statesman and then of the Sunday Times, which she left in 1986. She is the author of, among other books: The Life and Death of Mary Wollstonecraft; Shelley and His World Katherine Mansfield: A Secret Life; The Invisible Woman and the extraordinarily successful biography of Samuel Pepys. Other books written for Penguin include: Jane Austen: A Life and a collection of memoirs entitled Several Strangers.
