Description
The winner of the William Carlos Williams Award and author of the National Book Award finalist Old Heart, poet Stanley Plumly here offers a singular and passionate biography of poet John Keats (1795–1821), an exploration of a brief life that the dying Keats was all too sure would be lost in obscurity. "I have an habitual feeling of my real life having past, and that I am leading a posthumous existence," he wrote to a friend, and Plumly mines such musings and Keats's own verse to map a life and career that the poet supposed was "writ in water," yet was elevated almost to mythic stature after his death.

"Stanley Plumly's obsessive, intricate, intimate and brilliant new book, Posthumous Keats ... navigates expertly between the pauses of poetic meditation and the necessary forward momentum of a compelling story. Each section begins with a kind of authorial gambit, tests it against Keats's life and poems, then emerges with a new insight.... The bravery to weave such insights seamlessly into his narrative are what makes Plumly's book more than just another dispassionate biography. His is a book worthy of Keats—full of feeling and drama and those fleeting moments we call genius."—Washington Post
