Thanks Aquarius for the poems in Lowell's biography. I have the volumes but have not yet read them. I am reading Hewitt's 1938 version and loving it. She is so delightful to read, it is fast becoming my favorite biography. She tends to include fascinating pieces of Keats and his environment that no one else seems to. Lovely read.

Hmm nice fluffy poem, but she seems still enamoured of the Victorian prettified, Shelleyan picture of Keats as some weak child [boyish he may have been in spirit in some ways but not a prepubescent cherub].

I despair of this image of Keats, and I suspect he would be appalled by it himself.
