Keats: Bicentenary Readings

Synopsis

These essays provide a revitalized sense of the direction in which the major aspects of Keats criticism are heading. Original contributions from distinguished Romanticists cover such issues as the function of Keats's style, the shape of his career, and the relationship between his poetry and history.

Ranging across Keats's poetry and letters, these articles encompass ground-breaking historical research of the poet's schooling at Enfield, as well as an innovative discussion of his writings about America. The contributors shed new light on Keats's response to art and on his unique handling of the epistolary form. They also reconsider Keats's poetry in fresh readings, discuss his treatment of silence, and explore the "inward Keats" and his post-Romantic, American reception.
