Keats' friends

Has anybody read any of the letters or work of Keats' friends like Hunt, Haydon, Lamb, Hazzlit, Brown etc.?

Are there any books about Severn - where can we see his paintings?

The famous Keats portraits apparently (I haven't been there) are at the National Portrait Gallery in London (link slow).

Thanks for the link. I've always loved the picture of Keats reading in his favourite position - I read like that!!
It's a great little detail that only such a good friend like Severn would have added.

What is your favourite image of Keats?
