John Keats


Born in 1795, Keats was the youngest of the First Fab Four

and could be considered to be ‘the quiet one’.


 His life was a quiet but determined journey to achieve

his potential, rising above the loss of his parents and dedicating himself to his art.

In one of the great feats in literary history he refined his skills

in a three year period to produce his final masterworks published in 1820.

These included 'To Autumn', perhaps the last poem he wrote

and with its famous opening line

'Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'

(To Autumn features in Episode 2)


A great way to connect with Keats and his work is through
our new CD edition of 'John Keats's sublime single' 


  • Includes 2 song versions of John Keats poems
  • 'To Autumn' as the ‘A-side’, 'On the Shore' as the B-side.
  • Also includes a 9-minute audio life of Keats

'The strangely encouraging life of John Keats’,

which tells of the poet's life, his struggles and achievements.

 See here for a discussion of Keats's influence on British war poet Wilfred Owen, 

and there is more commentary on 'To Autumn' and 'On the Shore' 

at the Lyrics and Schools pages.

(And by the way, this article 'A Keatsian Field Trip' argues that 

Keats's 'stubble-plain' is now to be found under a Winchester car park).
