Naxos AudioBooks continues its new series of Great Poets, represented by collections of their most popular poems in one program. Although John Keats had a short life, he produced a series of outstanding poems, many of which appeared first in letters to his sister. He was largely unappreciated during his lifetime and died in Rome at the age of 26. Most of his 150 poems were written in just nine extraordinary months in 1819. This selection contains some of his finest works, including the principal Odes, La Belle Dame Sans Merci, Old Meg, and Much Have I Travelled.

Listen to more great poets, including William Blake, Rudyard Kipling, W. B. Yeats, and Great Poets of the Romantic Age. Download and start listening now!

    " Keats' natural flow of words when coupled with his interest for knowledge creates the most enjoyable poems for anyone with a love for poetry. "

    " Keats's sonnets were much more enjoyable than his longer work, I think due to their structure. The longer works just felt like someone sat down with a rhyming dictionary and did their best to entertain their friends & loved ones. The descriptive language Keats uses is rich and vibrant. The rhyme just felt forced and was very distracting, whereas with the shorter poems, this was not the case. Perhaps this is because the poetry is written by a young man (he died at 25) still developing his style and becoming comfortable with different poetical structures. Anyone interested in the Romantics should take a look - perhaps starting with the sonnets, but I'd recommend Samuel Coleridge first though before Keats. "
