The Young Keats by Jean Haynes

Guys, have you heard of a book called "The Young Keats" by Jean Haynes published in 1967? I hadn't, but stumbled across a well-preserved copy in a second-hand bookshop in London. Haynes was a genealogist who spent over 50 years of her life on archival research on Keats and Hampstead. This book seemed to be quite a soppy, novelistic reimagining of Keats's youth, but I was interested to find something "new" on Keats and his life!

who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.
