Transcript of John Keats
By Elizabeth J.
John Keats was born on October 31st, 1975 in London England,
He was the eldest of four children.
Born to Thomas Keats, and Frances Jennings Keats.
He had a close knit family, and spent time with his family well.
John couldn't afford a public school, however his regular school gave him an opportunity to study both classic and Renaissance literature
After finishing school, John took an apprenticeship at Guy's Hospital.
John began studying with a man by the name of Cowden Clark, who heavily influenced Keats's writing. They had a student-pupil relationship, and spent long nights studying and discussing books from the library. A man by the name of Edmund Spenser wrote a poem with the title of "The Faerie Queene" which was said to bring out Keats genius, as he had a keen eye for beauty in general.
Fair Isabel, poor simple Isabel!
Lorenzo, a young palmer in Love's eye!
They could not in the self-same mansion dwell
Without some stir of heart, some malady;
They could not sit at meals but feel how well
It soothed each to be the other by;
They could not, sure, beneath the same roof sleep
But to each other dream, and nightly weep.
Isabella or the Pot of Basil verse 1/63
What Was a Major Influence to John's Writing?
What Makes John an Important Poet to Know About Today?
John Keats was an important poet in history, because he was the last historically recognized Romantic poet, and died at such a young age.
John Keats died February 23, 1821 at the young age of just 25 due to the familiar tuberculosis that also killed his family members. He was reported to be observed crying when he would awake because he was still alive after the slow but steady course of rough tuberculosis.
