A new selection of poetry by one of the great Romantic poets, edited and introduced by Dr Andrew Hodgson. John Keats is regarded as one of the greatest poets of the Romantic movement, but when he died at the tender age of twenty-five, his writing had been attacked by critics and his talent remained largely unrecognized. Edited and introduced by Dr Andrew Hodgson, this new volume reflects his extraordinary creativity and versatility, drawing on the collections published during his lifetime as well as posthumously. He wrote in many different forms - from his famous Odes to ballads such as La Belle Dames Sans Merci and the epic Hyperion. Together, they celebrate a poet who wrote with unsurpassed incite and emotion about art and beauty, love and loss, suffering and nature. Designed to appeal to book lovers everywhere, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

John Keats was born in London, England in 1795. He and his siblings were orphaned at a young age: his father died in a riding accident in 1804 and his mother died six years later. That same year Keats left school to train as an apothecary and a surgeon before dedicating his time to poetry. His first volume, Poems, was published in 1817 and only two more volumes, in 1818 and 1820, were published during his lifetime. In 1818, he fell in love with his neighbour Fanny Brawne but broke off their engagement due to his increasing ill health and lack of funds. In 1820, he moved to Italy where he died a year later of tuberculosis, the disease that had claimed both his mother and his brother Tom. Andrew Hodgson, Ph.D is a lecturer in Romanticism at the University of Birmingham, having previously studied and taught at the University of Durham.
