“Douglas Dodge modulates his voice beautifully to capture the slightly varied emotions of many poems. This well-edited recording contains Keats’s most famous works: ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci,’ ‘The Eve of St. Agnes,’ ‘Ode to a Nightingale,’ ‘On a Grecian Urn,’ along with many lesser-known short poems such as ‘To Mrs. Reynolds’ Cat’ that exhibit the poet’s more fanciful side.”—Library Journal

About the Author

John Keats (1795–1821) was an English romantic poet. Along with Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley, he was one of the key figures in the second generation of the romantic movement, despite the fact that his work had been in publication for only four years before his death. During his life, his poems were not generally well received by critics; however, after his death, his reputation grew to the extent that by the end of the nineteenth century he had become one of the most beloved of all English poets. He has had a significant influence on a diverse range of later poets and writers. His poetry is characterized by sensual imagery, most notably in the series of odes. Today his poems and letters are some of the most popularly read and analyzed.
