The Letters of John Keats

By John Keats; Maurice Buxton Forman | Go to book overview

will be--that the Hero of the written tale being mortal is led on, like Buonaparte, by circumstance; whereas the Apollo in Hyperion being a fore-seeing God will shape his actions like one. But I am counting &c.

Your proposal pleases me--and, believe me, I would not have my Head in the shop windows from any hand but yours--no by Apelles!

I will write Taylor1 and you shall hear from me

Yours ever John Keats--


39. To JOHN TAYLOR. Friday 23 〈Jan. 1818〉.

No address or postmark.

Friday 23rd

My dear Taylor,

I have spoken to Haydon about the Drawing--he would do it with all his Art and Heart too if so I will it--however he has written thus to me--but I must tell you first, he intends painting a finished picture from the Poem--thus he writes

"When I do any thing for your poem, it must be effectual--an honor to both of us--to hurry up a sketch for the season won't do. I think an engraving from your head, from a Chalk drawing of mine--done with all my might-- to which I would put my name, would answer Taylor's Idea more than the other indeed I am sure of it--this I will do & this will be effectual and as I have not done it for any other human being--it will have an effect"

What think you of this? Let me hear. I shall have my second book in readiness forthwith--

Your's most sincerely

John Keats--

If Reynolds calls tell him three lines would be acceptable for I am squat at Hampstead
