In his brief existence the English poet John Keats (1795-1821) produced a corpus of poetry that has caused him to be ranked with the very greatest. For many he is the supreme poet of the Romantic era. The present volume contains thirty complete pieces that include the best-known and most highly regarded works of his maturity (except for Endymion, Lamia and Hyperion, too long for such an anthology) and a number of such other juvenile or lighthearted poems as "I stood tip-toe upon a little hill," the epistle to Reynolds, the sonnet to Mrs. Reynolds' cat and "A Song about Myself."
The text of the poems is adopted from The Poetical Works of John Keats, edited by H. W. Garrod, Oxford University Press, London, 1956. The order of the poems, also from the Garrod edition, is based on their first publication in collected volumes (see the table of contents for details).
