Its not a review, Its more of praising as I cant commit such a sin... I have just plucked the most beautiful parts of his letters to His Love...
Unlike traditional romantics Keats introduced the idea of negative captivity of Love;love can generate negative feelings or love can even destroy a person. Poets consider him as one of the gods of Poetry.....
His love is just like an ECG , , with full of spikes and falls ..


During his first letter, He demands kisses on the letter and what a beautiful wa

Nonobstant la fabuleuse écriture de John Keats, ce livre ne mérite que trois étoiles. Je lui en avais d'abord attribué quatre mais il m'est ensuite apparu avec le recul que face à d'autres ouvrages, notamment ceux de Proust ou de Virginia Woolf, quatre étoiles étaient bien trop généreux. Les poèmes de Keats sont un pur ravissement et je pense que le caractère fade de ce livre est a imputé au choix de l'éditeur. La lecture est en outre certainement plus digne d'intérêt dans la langue maternelle d ...more

pour un si grand poète, écrire des lettres d'amour si plates, c'est décevant.

Found a very old copy at my local half price books it was even in the locked case with care. I'm pleased as I read each word telling his story of love and life.

“My love has made me selfish. I cannot exist without you – I am forgetful of every thing but seeing you again – my Life seems to stop there – I see no further. You have absorb'd me. I have a sensation at the present moment as though I was dissolving – I should be exquisitely miserable without the hope of soon seeing you ... I have been astonished that Men could die Martyrs for religion – I have shudder'd at it – I shudder no more – I could be martyr'd for my Religion – Love is my religion – I could die for that – I could die for you.” 25 likes
