Fugitive Poems by John Keats
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Fugitive Poems is a new volume of previously uncollected poems selected by Poet Laureate Andrew Motion. Gleaned from the riches of Keats's letters to his friends and relatives, these poems reveal a lesser-known aspect of the poet's sensibility, showing him as a witty, humorous and, at times, irreverent young writer. A verse letter full of 'shapes, and shadows and remembrances', a sonnet on a 'craggy ocean-pyramid' and a 'mysterious tale' of which the poet cannot speak - Fugitive Poems provides a precious insight into what manner of man John Keats really was, and how he lived out his poetic life. 'John Keats's Fugitive Poems is indispensable to any passionate lover of Keats's poetry.' - John Horder, Art Council Prize-winning poet, playwright, story-teller and journalist.
