I have only resisted the temptation to give this five stars because I feel it could have been edited more efficiently. Some really interesting information, deserving of highlight, is lost in long paragraphs and the writer's voice sometimes intrudes rather too obviously. For a book that cost over £40 this was a pity.

HOWEVER as a literary life this is an interesting and accessible read. If you are looking for a straightforward biography of Keats life, or a detailed analysis of the poetry and letters this is not the book for you. But in referencing each to the other it is at times fascinating.
