Pluralist in approach and ranging across Keats's poetry and letters, this volume brings together ground-breaking historical research on the writer's schooling in Enfield, the sources of 'The Eve of St Mark', as well as an innovative discussion of Keats's writings about America. New light is shed on Keats's response to art and on his brilliant handling of the epistolary form. The workings of Keats's poetry are also reconsidered in a series of new readings. His treatment of silence is discussed; divisions put to productive use by Keats are emphasized; and the 'inward Keats' is explored in an examination of his poetry's post-Romantic, American reception.
