I found this online and felt I should share with the forum.Apparently someone is working on a book about the Keats brothers with the help of one of George Keats descendants.

Denise Gigante, Associate Professor of English, teaches eighteenth and nineteenth-century British literature with a focus on Romanticism. Her books include Taste: A Literary History (Yale UP, 2005), Gusto: Essential Writings in Nineteenth-Century Gastronomy (Routledge, 2005), The Great Age of the English Essay: An Anthology (Yale UP, 2008), and Life: Organic Form and Romanticism, forthcoming from Yale University Press in spring 2009. She is currently working on The Keats Brothers: The Life of John and George with Lawrence M. Crutcher (a descendant of George Keats) and a book about American bibliophilia and British Romanticism.

Yay & Aha! -- this is the same woman I read about on the Filson Club website before I left for Louisville. Also, there is a "Crutcher" monument and family gravesite next to the Keats family graves in Cave Hill Cemetery. I hope her book is picked up and we get to read more about the brothers' relationship. ... ellow.html
