Keats' poetic genius was first seen in 1816 when he published the first of a series of great works. He was variously hailed as an important poetical figure, the natural heir to the Romantic throne and, like Shelley before him, criticized for his politics. In his short life he proved to be one of the greatest and most original thinkers of the second generation of Romantic poets due to poems such as "Ode to a Nightingale", "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer" and "La Belle Dame sans Merci". His writing abounds with the exaltation of the imagination and sensuous descriptions of nature's beauty, yet also explores profound philosophical questions. This volume contains all the poems known to have been written by Keats.

John Keats lost both his parents at an early age. His decision to commit himself to poetry, rather than follow a career in medicine, was a personal challenge, unfounded in any prior success. His first volume of poetry, published in 1817, was a critical and commercial failure. This book tells his story.
