Has anybody read the book on John Keats published by Robert Woof and Stephen Hebron for The Wordsworth Trust (1995)?

Never heard of it to be honest; what's it like? Is it a biography, critical study or what?

I only heard of it recently and haven't located a copy yet; I was just wondering if anyone had come across it. It's apparently intended as an introduction to Keats, focusing on his background and development, and is part of a series (other books in the series look at Wordsworth, Coleridge and Byron). The blurb says that it is "filled photographs of landscapes and cityscapes from his life, portraits of the poet and his family, evocative paintings, and manuscripts of his works and letters".

Hebron also wrote the excellent John Keats: A Poet and His Manuscripts (2009), which contains fascinating fascimiles of some of Keats's manuscripts - a great way to see them without the drudgery of archival research :) .

only someone like Jane Campion who calls her audience to know how Keats & Brawne lived is how our poet would have us write ourselves ... someone who knows the words of anatomy in love passions up to the erotic same old same olds... a genuine love of couples finding their words either together or the poet for both ... I would write with my MS Brawne if she would write with me ... perhaps what is missing is a marriage consumated?
