Review:

'... the book presents a chronological journey through Keats's biographia literaria, a boon for readers of Keats; but Wolfson's attention to reading is also a movable feast, modeling a process that can be transferred to other writers ...' John Kandl, Modern Philology

'There is perhaps no scholar better suited to the task of reading Keats's poetry and letters than Wolfson. ... teachers of poetry competing with a multiplicity of media for the attention of a young generation of readers will no doubt welcome this loving and lively book.' Emily Rohrbach, The BARS Review

“In Reading John Keats, Susan Wolfson offers a dazzling tour of Keats's poetry across the brief, blazoned arc of his career ... Over the course of ten svelte, fast-paced chapters, Wolfson assembles an anthology of stunning readings of poetry readers find they may not know quite as well as they presumed. Whether one is looking into Keats's sonnet on Chapman's Homer for the first time, one sees - and hears - it anew under Wolfson's tutelage.' The Wordsworth Circle

Book Description:

John Keats is one of the best loved poets of the Romantic period. Focusing on the complexities of Keats's imagination and his genius with wordplay, Susan J. Wolfson offers a comprehensive introduction for first-time readers as well as fresh insights for seasoned Keatsians.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. John Keats (1795-1821), one of the best-loved poets of the Romantic period, is ever alive to words, discovering his purposes as he reads - not only books but also the world around him. Leading Keats scholar Susan J. Wolfson explores the breadth of his works, including his longest ever poem Endymion; subsequent romances, Isabella (a Boccaccio tale with a proto-Marxian edge admired by George Bernard Shaw), the passionate Eve of St Agnes and knotty Lamia; intricate sonnets and innovative odes; the unfinished Hyperion project (Keats's existential rethinking of epic agony); and late lyrics involved with Fanny Brawne, the bright (sometimes dark) star of his last years. Illustrated with manuscript pages, title-pages, and two portraits, Reading John Keats investigates the brilliant complexities of Keats's imagination and his genius in wordplay, uncovering surprises and new delights, and encouraging renewed respect for the power of Keats's thinking and the subtle turns of his writing.
