Endymion, by John Keats. Preface. The two first books, and indeed the two last, I feel sensible are not of such completion as to warrant their passing the press; nor should they if I thought a year’s castigation would do them any good; — it will not: the foundations are too sandy.

On Thursday 9 April Keats replied to John Hamilton Reynolds, who had told him that his publishers had rejected his first atttempt at a preface for ‘Endymion’: ‘I have not the slightest feel of humility towards the public — or to anything in existence, — but the eternal Being, the Principle of Beauty, and Continue reading years ago Keats had to rewrite the Preface to.

The books to which I am most indebted for the material used in the Introduction and Notes are The Poems of John Keats with an Introduction and Notes by E. de Sélincourt, Life of Keats (English Men of Letters Series) by Sidney Colvin, and Letters of John Keats edited by Sidney Colvin.

As a pupil of Dr. de Sélincourt I also owe him special. John Keats (Octo – Febru ) was an English Romantic poet of the second generation, alongside Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley. He is best known for his odes, including "Ode to a Grecian Urn," "Ode to a Nightingale," and his long form poem Endymion.

His usage of sensual imagery and statements such as “beauty is truth and truth is beauty” made him a precursor of. Indeed, Keats's fear of tarnishing the lustre of the ancient fictions is the most powerful and conclusive symptom of a lack of confidence which characterizes the Preface as a whole, and for which the narrative itself immediately sets out to compensate.Preface Books A series of scholarly and critical studies of major writers intended for those needin more» g modern and authoritative HODGART A Preface to Keats CEDRIC WATTS A Preface to Orwell DAVID WYKES A Preface to Milton (Revised edn) LOIS POTTER A edn) SYDNEY BOLT A Preface to Hardy (Second edn) MERRYN WILLIAMS A Preface to.That same month, Keats finished copying out the manuscript and sent it to his publishers, along with a preface.
