Publisher's Summary

Born in 1795, tragically dead of consumption by age 26, John Keats was one of the greatest English Romantic poets. During his brief life, he composed many poems and odes that are considered among the finest and most passionate ever written. Lush, sensuous, rhythmic, and surprising, they captivate the senses and fascinate the mind.


What the Critics Say

Keats fanboy's choice

I'm a big fan of Keats and this audiobook is the reason why - first purchased in the early nineties, I have listened to this incredible collection of poems hundreds of times - all the greats are here from Ode to a Nightengale, Ode to a Grecian Urn, Isabella, La Belle Damme sans Merci and Eve of St. Agnes - although the book is labelled "abridged," the only abridgement is Endymion - a must have for any lover of the romantic poets and Keats in particular - beautifully narrated, too
