All 64 sonnets of one of the greatest English poets, John Keats, are collected here, from the first, which he wrote at age 18, to the last, written just five years later. Presented with an introduction and explanatory notes, the sonnets combine sensuous imagery with an eager voice full of passionate yearning. Keats's strongest feelings and his refined appreciation of nature and the rich world of his imagination find words and fulfilment in the abiding form of the sonnet. Some of the sonnets are written in play, some in seriousness; in some he experiments with form; and in others he is completely free within the form.
