Rate this:
On October 21, 1829, John Keats set foot in Rome for what he hoped would be a swift convalescence. One hundred days later he succumbed to consumption, dead at the age of 25. Keats' love affair with Fanny Brawne has fascinated biographers, and this volume discusses how complex their love affair was, and how the events at the end of Keats' life illuminate the whole affair. Walsh also discusses Keats' views on religion, and the exact nature of the disease that killed him. This biography brings to life the last days of his life, describing what he experienced in his room overlooking the Spanish steps, and his tragically unrealized ambitions.
