John Keats (1795-1821) was an English Romantic poet who devoted his short life to works marked by vivid imagery. From 1818 to 1820, Keats lived in a house in Hampstead, London, where he wrote some of his best works, including "Ode to a Nightingale," which he composed under a plum tree in the garden.
The Keats House is now a museum dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition, and interpretation of the poet's life and works. The Keats House Collection consists of letters, poems, and manuscripts written by Keats' friends and acquaintances. It also includes books annotated by the poet, a notebook he kept as a medical student, and a few original drafts of his poems. (Please click here for a list of contents.)
Collected by the poet throughout his life, this material is a valuable resource for students or scholars who need information on Keats, lyric poetry, or the English Romantic movement.
