In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past.

About the Author

John Keats (1795-1821) abandoned a career in medicine to write poetry, until his life was cut tragically short from tuberculosis at the age of twenty-five. By that time, he had published three volumes of verse to an unreceptive critical response. But, as the nineteenth century wore on, Keats' reputation would build, and today he is recognized as one of the greatest of the Romantic poets. Andrew Motion was Poet Laureate from 1999 to 2009; he is Professor of Creative Writing at Royal Holloway College, University of London, and co-founder of the online Poetry Archive. He has received numerous awards for his poetry, and has published four celebrated biographies including the authorized life of Philip Larkin which won the Whitbread Prize for Biography. Andrew Motion was knighted for his services to poetry in 2009. In 2014 he received the Wilfred Owen Poetry Award.
