This is a celebratory meld of memoir, biography and travelogue, intensely personal and all the better for it. Eleanor Fitzsimons, author of Wildes WomenJohn Keats is one of Britains best-known and most-loved poets. Despite dying in Rome in 1821, at the age of just twenty-five, his poems continue to inspire generations who reinterpret and reinvent the ways in which we consume his work.Apart from his long association with Hampstead, North London, he has not previously been known as a poet of place in the way we associate Wordsworth with the Lake District, for example, and for many years readers considered Keatss work remote from political and social context. Yet Keats was acutely aware of and influenced by his surroundings: Hampstead; Guys Hospital in London where he trained as a doctor; Teignmouth where he nursed his brother Tom; a walking tour of the Lake District and Scotland; the Isle of Wight; the area around Chichester and in Winchester, where his last great ode, To Autumn, was composed.Suzie Grogan takes the reader on a journey through Keatss life and landscapes, introducing us to his best and most influential work. Utilizing primary sources such as Keatss letters to friends and family and the very latest biographical and academic work, it offers an accessible way to see Keats through the lens of the places he visited and aims to spark a lasting interest in the real Keatsthe poet and the man.Warm and worthwhile observations on how places as varied as the Lake District and the Isle of Wight shaped Keatss verse.
