Description

“The Eve of St. Agnes” is a Romantic narrative poem written by John Keats in 1819 and first published in 1820. Comprised of 42 Spenserian stanzas, it was considered one of his best poems by his contemporaries and remained influential well into the 19th century. John Keats (1795–1821) was an English Romantic poet and one of the most important figures in the second generation of Romantic poets, together with Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron. He died from tuberculosis at the age of 25, just four years after his work entered publication. Other notable works by this author include: “Ode to a Nightingale”, “Sleep and Poetry”, and “On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer”. A fantastic poem by a master Romantic poet that will appeal to all lovers of English poetry. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an introductory chapter from “The Mentor – Famous English Poets” by Hamilton Wright Mabie.
