John Keats, A Longman Cultural Edition

Paperback / softback
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.
