The poems of John Keats are some of the most beautiful and passionate ever composed in the English language. Claire Tomalin's new selection of Keats's verse reveals this great Romantic poet in all his genius, showing his emotional depth, sensuous description and soaring imagination to the full.

This volume includes the masterpieces of his short career – including 'Ode on a Grecian Urn', 'Ode to a Nightingale' and 'Ode on Melancholy' (written within weeks of each other), 'The Fall of Hyperion' and 'To Autumn'. Here too is the timeless love poetry inspired by Keats's passionate, tragic affair with Fanny Brawne, as well as other verses of such beauty and generosity of spirit that they have fulfilled the wish of Keats, who died from tuberculosis at just twenty-five, that he should 'be among the English poets after my death'.
