A new book takes readers on a fascinating journey through the life and landscapes of John Keats, one of Britain’s best-known and most-loved poets.
Suzie retraces Keats’s journeys and revisits the places which influenced him, such as Hampstead; Guy’s Hospital in London, where he trained as a doctor; Teignmouth in Devon, where he nursed his brother Tom; a walking tour of the Lake District and Scotland; the Isle of Wight; the area around Chichester; Winchester; and Rome, where he died in 1821, aged just 25.
She also looks at how those areas changed over two centuries, and how they celebrate their ‘Keats connection’ today.
We were pleased to have helped with the book – our senior consultant Andrew Weltch was involved in proofreading.
“Andrew’s proofreading was a huge help and gave me a lot of confidence that any reviews wouldn’t focus on grammatical or typographical errors,” said Suzie.
“He completed the work promptly and also offered some helpful comments. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and Weltch Media to other authors and publishers.”
Using primary sources such as Keats’s letters to friends and family and the very latest biographical and academic work, the book offers an accessible way to see Keats through the lens of the places he visited and aims to spark a lasting interest in the real Keats – the poet and the man.
