February 23 this year marked the 200th anniversary of Keats’ death. This five week course will look at a number of Keats’ poems, for example, ‘The Eve of St Agnes‘, ‘A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever‘ ‘La Belle Dame sans Merci‘ and ‘Ode to A Nightingale‘ to tell the story of Keats’ life, how he became a poet and where he stood in relation to romanticism. One thing we will learn is that he was not the ethereal young man he is often portrayed to be. I hope that’s baited the hook and that I’ll see you on the course!
