Keats' work was often discussed witheringly by the more well-to-do, conservative reviewers of the time: "his nonsense ... Is quite gratuitous; he writes for his own sake ... "

This study of four poems - Isabella; or, the Pot of Basil, The Eve of St Agnes, Lamia and La Belle Dame sans Merci - celebrates Keats' genius as a narrative poet. It shows that the difference between the class-bound, well-schooled critics and the humanistic spirit in which Keats wrote is night and day.
