Romantic poet John Keats was only 25 when he died of tuberculosis, but his work has achieved canonical status. Poet and critic Matthew Arnold said of Keats, "In the faculty of naturalistic interpretation, in what we call natural magic, he ranks with Shakespeare." Keats's more recognizable poems include "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode to a Nightingale," and "Ode on Melancholy." Updated with all-new, full-length critical essays selected by Harold Bloom, this volume will draw students into an in-depth study of the brilliant young poet. A chronology, notes on the contributors, and a bibliography round out this useful resource.
