Summary

From Longman' s Cultural Editions series'' John Keats'' edited by Susan J. Wolfson is the first edition organized to give a sense of the poet' s thinking by interspersing letters poems and publications of reviews and contemporary works. This is a new event in editions of Keats arranged not in the usual way of separating these writings but rather by positioning them alongside the author' s poems in order of composition or appearance in print for a more holistic understanding of Keats' s work. Editor Susan Wolfson has taken care that all poems and letters have been freshly edited from their sources and the manuscripts reflect scriptive elements such as cross-outs and underlines. This edition also includes some unusual contextual writings including newspaper reviews of Keats' s publications. Keats' enthusiasts or students of poetry.
