Transcript of JOHN

John Keats ( October 31, 1795 in London, England. - February 23, 1821, in Rome, Italy) was one of Britain's leading poets of Romanticism.
During his short life, his work was under constant attack and it was not until much later that was fully vindicated. The poetry of Keats is characterized by a lush and imaginative language, tempered by melancholy. Keats had often the feeling of working in the shadow of the great poets of the past and only towards the end of his short life, when darkness was near death, he was able to produce its most authentic and memorable poems.

In 1817 he moved to the Isle of Wight, where he began work on a new book. Soon I had to take care of his brother Tom, a victim of tuberculosis, like her mother. The disease accounted for the poet almost a biblical curse, as it would decimate her family and end his own life. After completing his epic poem Endymion, Keats began a trip to Scotland and Ireland with his friend Charles Brown, and during this trip he also began to show signs of infection, so had to return prematurely. Upon his return, he found that Tom had worsened considerably; finally he died in 1818. At regret over the death of his brother that criticism was met with hostility his Endymion, as he had done before with his Poems joined. Keats then decided to move again, this time to live in the London house of his friend Brown. There he met Fanny Brawne, who had been living in the house with his mother Brown, and soon fell in love with her. The posthumous publication of the correspondence between the two scandalized Victorian society.
Meanwhile, during the spring and summer of 1819, Keats wrote his best poems, "Ode to Psyche," "Ode on a Grecian Urn" and "Ode to a Nightingale" classic pieces of English literature, which appeared in the third and best of his books, Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St. Agnes and Other Poems (1820). The first is a tribute to a goddess who apparently did not have a great worship in ancient Greece; Psyche Keats promises to build him a shrine. In the second, "Ode on a Grecian Urn", tries to talk to an urn discovered in a museum, surprised by mystery suspended in eternity than it reveals; urn replied with the words "beauty is truth, truth beauty, this is all you need to know ...". In "Ode to a Nightingale", the lyric I rises among the trees, with the wings of the poetic word, to meet there the nightingale sings; that serves to compare the eternal and transcendental nature of ideals with the transience of the physical world: the poet, who feels death, longs that eternity.
The following year, his relationship with Fanny had to conclude when Keats tuberculosis worsened considerably. Doctors advised him to steer clear of the cold climate and to march to London sunny Italy; Keats left for Rome with his friend the painter Joseph Severn invited by another friend, Percy Bysshe Shelley. For a year his health seemed to improve, but turned out to be broken and died early the following year, February 23, 1821, next to the Roman square of Spain.
In honor of his friend, Shelley wrote his poem "Adonaïs". Keats's body is buried in the Protestant cemetery in Rome. On his gravestone, as he wanted his epitaph reads "Here lies one whose name was writ in water" 2 There is a portrait painted by William Keats Hilton.En honor his friend, Shelley wrote his poem "Adonaïs" .
