John Keats was a brilliant poet. This website is dedicated to him to celebrate his life and poetry.
Students looking for information on John Keats should find this site very useful as it contains various revision notes, biography, annotated poems and so much more.
Even if you're just interested to know more about the man behind classic poetry such as 'To Autumn', you'll find plenty here to engage you. Perhaps you've seen 'Bright Star' recently, and never really knew who Keats was.. well you've come to the right place!
I studied John Keats' poetry 4 years ago, and it still means a lot to me now. I hope this site can prove to you how powerful his poetry was, as well as informing you about his life and relationships with other poets.
If you have any questions to ask, whether its about the website or John Keats himself, please feel free to email me (see contact page) and I'll be happy to reply. You can sign my guestbook, or if you're keen to chat to others, there's a Keats forum (run by someone else).
Keats' Kingdom will be always be updated with more poetry, notes, revision activities and other information. Look out for activity sheets throughout the website.
The Keats Walk
If you're looking to be inspired and feel truly at one with nature, then why not try Keats' Walk in Winchester? You'll be walking in Keats's very footsteps through the landscape that inspired 'To Autumn'.
If you visit the tourist information centre in Winchester first of all, you'll be able to pick up a leaflet (for a very small charge) which guides you through the walk. The round trip is about 2 miles through lovely countryside, starting around Winchester Cathedral and finishing at the Hospital of St Cross.
Keats Guided Walk
You can now go on a guided Keats walk. It tells the
story of Keats's extraordinary life as you walk around Hampstead
with readings from his poetry and letters.
It is organised in conjunction with Keats House, and entrance to the house is free on the day for walkers.
Full details are available on the Keats House website.
It can also be found on the Poetry Library website, which includes a testimonial from someone who attended the walk recently.
