This is an auction for JOHN KEATS by Robert Woof & Stephen Hebron.

"This well-written, generously illustrated volume is a grand biography cum reference work. It's somewhat longer than an encyclopedia essay, and somewhere short of an actual book-length biography. The story of Keats's short life and great gift is told in a compelling manner that will lead many readers to look further into this most amazing and ardent of poets. The authors cover their subject's childhood, family life, education, friendships, and work. The paintings, drawings, etchings, and manuscript pages are well chosen and give a great sense of the period."
- School Library Journal (US)

Amazon.com review:

"John Keats is one of the best-loved, admired, and most frequently studied Romantic poets, though he wrote only three volumes of poetry in his short life. This extraordinary biography looks at how Keats developed as a poet against the backdrop of the major events of his life. JOHN KEATS follows the poet through intense family ties and friendships, a medical apprenticeship and subsequent decision to pursue poetry, participation in the literary circles of London, travels within Britain, illness, and finally, death from tuberculosis at age 25. A vivid and authoritative introduction to Keats's remarkable life, JOHN KEATS is filled with photographs of landscapes and cityscapes from his life, portraits of the poet and his family, evocative paintings, and manuscripts of his works and letters."
