Great Article about Keats's Letters

Postby Malia » Fri Sep 22, 2006 8:58 pm

DKS's find from 1848 has inspired me to search the net for some cool Keats articles and/or essays. Here's one written *much* later than 1848 (2001, to be precicse) that is worth reading. I am a huge fan of Keats's letters. . .even moreso than his poetry, actually. I highly recommend them to anyone who studies Keats. They are a treasure!

I am ashamed at my laziness my dear ladies you put me to shame :oops:

Thanks for this Malia - the letters are indeed a wonderful experience.

I often wonder if we would think as much as we do of Keats if we did not have them?

We would of course have the wonderful poetry but we would not have Keats' humour, his affection, his passions, his philosophy of life as we do all contained in those artful and idisyncratic letters.
