"'[T]he Life which was, as it were, already written': biographizing epistolary Keats"

Abstract : If John Keats suspected he would be “among the English Poets” after his death, could he have imagined the multitude of biographical afterlives which would emerge from, and remain enveloped in, his private correspondence? In examining the relationship between Keats the letter-writer and Keats the biographical subject, this paper reflects on the possibility that this notoriously “posthumous” Romantic poet might have anticipated the assimilation of his letters into a future biography, and investigates the ways in which he continues to have a warm and capable hand in the writing of his life.
