In this new biography, Robert Mighall charts the life of this brilliant poet, from the premature deaths of both his parents, to his early writings and unkind treatment from critics, his travels and friendship with the Shelleys, and his own untimely death at the age of twenty-five. Interspersed in his life story are extracts from Keats' poems to offer a unique insight into both the man and his work.
Robert Mighall was a junior fellow at Oxford University before becoming Editor of Penguin Classics. He is now a professional branding consultant, and continues to write and review regularly. His first book Sunshine was published in 2008.
