Carefully Researched Biography - Perhaps Too Detailed for Casual Reading 27 août 2005
Par Michael Wischmeyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Andrew Motion made extensive use of primary documents, including the fascinating letters of John Keats, to explore the personal, social, economic, and political context in which Keats created his remarkable poetry. This biography of John Keats ranks among the most carefully researched, best documented, and most detailed available. Andrew Motion's work will undoubtedly serve as essential critical reference work for English majors.

However, this highly detailed approach does make this biography rather formidable. I occasionally found myself lost in the details, searching for some path that would lead me closer to Keats' poetry. This is a long biography, almost 600 pages. I enjoyed those sections most in which Motion examined influences on particular poetry by Keats. In retrospect, I should have browsed some chapters, and even skipped some sections, rather than persistently read every page.

I have subsequently read a shorter biographical analysis by Stuart Sperry, titled Keats the Poet (Princeton University Press, 1973) that is better suited for a reader that desires to focus more closely on Keats' poetry, rather than upon details of Keats' personal life. The chapters have titles like The Allegory of Endymion, The First Hyperion, and From The Eve of St. Mark to La Belle Dame sans Merci, clearly illustrating the close alignment between biographical study and poetic interpretation.

The Life of a Poet as Seen Through the Eyes of a Poet 13 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Andrew Motion's biography recognizes the historical circumstances in which Keats lived, approaching new historicist tenets while maintaining a clear focus on the poet's individual life and works. He traces political tensions and medical practices of the time to expand upon the existing academic vision of Keats's poetic life; here he is more than a poet. That said, Motion, a poet himself, exemplifies the sensitivity to the writing process when discussing Keats's work. His criticism of the poems is well-rounded, balanced, and aware of the poet's process of composition. Overall, the book is well-reseached and a necessary addition to the scholarship we have on John Keats.

Good but not Definitive Bio of Keats 23 février 2009
Par Kevin M. Derby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Considering how short the life of John Keats was, it still amazes me that his biographers are able to create such weighty tomes. Andrew Motion's take on Keats, while long, is very through and readable. Motion argues that Keats, if not overtly political as say Shelley, was a poet who did care about the world of power and politics and was not content with poems on nature, the role of the artist etc. It's an interesting argument and Motion makes a strong case. The chief weakness of the book is Motion's habit of straying a bit too far from Keats and focusing on his friends and acquaintances. Now in some cases that is fine (his take on Haydon on Hunt and their influence on Keats is superb) but the reader can be forgiven if he wants to skip paragraphs and even pages on friends and acquaintances of Keats who did little to shape his life or his work. If not quite up to the magnificent biography of Keats by Bates, Motion's book is very good and, with his different take on the tragic poet, useful, even needed.

A tragic Life, Tragic to the End 25 août 2014
Par eledavf Vivian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I read this book twice, many years apart, and enjoyed it each time. His walking tours, his sickness, his hopeless love and his final desperate voyage to Italy are all carefully narrated. How unfortunate that his most devoted friend could not accompany him to Rome, being away on a trip when Keats hurriedly left England. That friend, Charles Armitage Brown, remained faithful to his memory and was instrumental in preserving, even rescuing, many of Keats' masterpieces.

This book is not a light and superficial read. Instead it tells in great detail the story of a pitifully short life full of sadness and disappointment and of desperation as his disease closed in upon him, made so much more harrowing by the poverty he could never escape.

How fitting that the poet's gravesite near Rome is remembered as one of infinite pathos.

Well written, accessible 30 janvier 2014
Par kim-Jenna Jurriaans - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I'm not a quick reader but finished this biography (which, in hardcopy, weighs a few pounds...) in no time -- a testament to Andrew Motion's ability to create multidimensional characters and vivid imagery to portray Keats, his entourage and surroundings. I knew next to nothing of the poet's life beyond his poetry when picking up this book and was left with a thorough understanding of the events (personal, political and historical) that prompted Keats' poems, his upbringing and family background, as well as some of his inner struggles and insecurities. Motion spends equal time delving into Keats's poems as he does into political events of the time that shed a new light on his poetry. He also goes to great lengths to reconstruct the environment Keats experience as a surgical student, which later serves to explain certain poetic imagery in his written work. Keats was also a skillful letter writers and Motions uses many of these personal letters between Keats and his brothers, as well as artist friends, to create a understanding of Keats as a person, as well as the artistic process behind his poetry. If I'd have to fault this biography for anything, then it would be for its abundance of detail in some areas that may not be of interest for anyone but the most avid fan and scholars of Keats' life (think a page-long description of the family background of an inn-keeper with minimal importance the larger storyline). But those sections are easy to skip without loosing anything of the "plot".

I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in biographies and certainly anyone wishing to learn more about Keats.
