Read full description of the books Selected Poems and Letters (Collins Classics):
HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.
‘I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the Heart's affections and the truth of the Imagination.’
One of the most popular of the Romantic poets, Keats’ poetry is suffused with adoration for natural beauty, exploration of joy and pain, and ideas on the transience of life. This new collection combines many of Keats’ well-loved poems – from ‘Ode to a Nightingale’ to ‘Bright Star’ – with his letters, often studied, analysed and admired in parallel and offering a fascinating insight into the life and mind of the famous poet.
Despite a lack of recognition during his own lifetime, Keats’ work has touched the hearts and minds of many, and deserves its place in the canon of English literature.
Read information about the authorJohn Keats was one of the principal poets of the English Romantic movement. During his short life, his work received constant critical attacks from the periodicals of the day, but his posthumous influence on poets such as Alfred Tennyson has been immense. Elaborate word choice and sensual imagery characterize Keats's poetry, including a series of odes that were his masterpieces and which remain among the most popular poems in English literature. Keats's letters, which expound on his aesthetic theory of "negative capability", are among the most celebrated by any writer.
