Description

From Longman's Cultural Editions series, John Keats,edited by Susan J. Wolfson, is the first edition organized to give a sense of the poet’s thinking by interspersing letters, poems, and publications of reviews and contemporary works.

This is a new event in editions of Keats, arranged not in the usual way of separating these writings, but rather by positioning them alongside the author's poems in order of composition or appearance in print, for a more holistic understanding of Keats’s work.  Editor Susan Wolfson has taken care that all poems and letters have been freshly edited from their sources, and the manuscripts reflect scriptive elements such as cross-outs and underlines.  This edition also includes some unusual contextual writings, including newspaper reviews of Keats's publications.

Handsomely produced and affordably priced, each Cultural Edition consists of the complete text of an important literary work, reliably edited, headed by an inviting introduction, supplemented by helpful annotations, accompanied by a table of significant dates and a guide for further study, then followed by contextual materials that reveal the conversations and controversies of its historical moment.

One Longman Cultural Edition can be packaged at no additional cost with any volume of The Longman Anthology of British Literature by Damrosch et al, or at a discount with any other Longman textbook.
