Lord Byron wrote “Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage” as a semi-autographical poem, and many of Harold’s encounters were taken directly from Byron’s experiences travelling Europe and the Middle East. Byron originally felt that the poem was too personal to publish, but eventually sent the first two cantos to print, which quickly propelled him to fame as a poet.

John Keats died in penury and relative obscurity in 1821, aged only 25. He is now seen as one of the greatest English poets and a genius of the Romantic age. This collection, which contains all his most memorable works and a selection of his letters, is a feast for the senses, displaying Keats' gift for gorgeous imagery and sensuous language, his passionate devotion to beauty, as well as some of the most moving love poetry ever written.
A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory --
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.
