Keats’s letters have long been regarded as an extraordinary record of poetic development and soul-making. They represent one of the most sustained reflections on the poet’s art we have from any of the major English poets. Yet quite apart from the light they throw on poetry, they are great works of literature in their own right.Written with gusto and occasionally painful candour, they show a powerful intelligence struggling to come to terms with its own immortality – sometimes bitterly jealous in love, and socially and financially insecure, at others playful and confident of his own greatness.
This selection of 163 letters, written between 1816 and 1820 edited by Sidney Colvin gives the fullest and the most poignant record we have of Keats’s ambitions and hopes as a poet, his life as a literary man about town, his close relationship with his brothers and young sister. Keats enclosed many of his poems with his letters, and read together, they offer an incomparable insight into his creative process and development as a poet.
