John Keats, the last of the Romantic School, was born in 1795 and died at age 25 in 1821. He was a Poet's Poet, developing his themes from a high artistic faith, and his aesthetic philosophy from his love of beauty.
Perhaps the most perfect of the Romanticists, he wrote poetry for its own sake. Here, Margaret Rawlings reads a selection of his finest work, including To a Nightingale, Mermaid Tavern, To Autumn, and On a Grecian Urn. Download and start listening now!
