Help! It seems like no one knows about...

It seems like no one knows about half of Keats's best works. I bought a book at an action entitled "John Keats's Poetical Works" and was published in 1895. It's in great condition but I can't find any of my favorite poems from this book on the internet. The poem that I information on the most is simply entitled "Fragment". The best sites I have been to bring up at most only 5 works that have the word fragment in them. Where as I know from this book there are many more poems that were entitled fragment of something and so on. The poem I need has a short quote from Milton before the poem starts and at the end of the page it is noted "This is the fourth of the undated fragments at the end of Volume I of the Life". I couldn't find anything on Life and I am getting very frustrated. If anyone could help in any way I would be very thankful!!!!

Give me some more information about the poem--perhaps a couple lines from it. I'll probably be able to help you.

email me--don't post here.

Keats began several poems that he didn't finish -- including Calidore, Hyperion, an Ode, and others. Any one of these could have been tled "Fragment," they're all fragments of poems. It was the editor, not the poet, that appended that title..

I'd just go to google and enter a line of the poem, and put it quotation marks. For example entering "Seek as they once were sought, in Grecian isles" brings up the fragment of the Ode to Maia.
