“ It is full of most important disclosures with regard to the hidden springs of Keats's life and thought. It reveals to us in a new light, not only the man, but also the poet.
In a certain sense, the publication of these letters might even be called the fulfilment of a duty."Pall Mall Gazette.
"Nothing in the literature of this century has been so much looked forward to and desired as these love letters.
Mr. Forman has displayed in editing them a scrupulous care and a tasteful delicacy that will do him great credit. He is a bibliographer of genius, and on every obscure point he has patiently concentrated the light of investigation.”--Academy.
" That these letters are an essential part of Keats's biography, that they show at the same time the close reciprocity of the poet's life and the poet's work, no competent judge can deny."- Vew Quarterly Magazine,
London : REEVES & TURNER, 196, Strand.
