John Keats

There were a number of poets and writers who were aspiring for success during the romantic period. But only a few were lucky enough to gain success. John Keats was one of the successful poets of this generation. Unfortunately, Keats’ success was short- lived as his life was taken away from him at the early age of 25. But even so, his works and his poems are still very much studied even until today as students and analysts continue to analyze his works.

Throughout the 25 years of Keats’ life, he had only been writing for 6 years and was said to be only publishing his work for the last 4 years of his span. This makes analysts today only be able to get a limited glimpse of what Keats really had to offer in terms of his poetic prowess. But the works that he left and published were greatly acknowledged especially after his death.

When he was still alive, critics were not very pleased about his works especially because politics had to do with those reviews. But as the time evolved and his poems were even spread to a bigger audience, people began to see how Keats used the changing culture to be reflected in his work. His most notable work is the 1819 odes.
