Exactly 100 days later, he succumbed to consumption, dead at the age of 25. This elegiac book brings to light the last days of his life, his tragically unrealized future ambitions and the view he saw from his room overlooking the Spanish Steps. Keats' love affair with young Fanny Brawne has long fascinated biographers, but John Evangelist Walsh shows for the first time how complex their relationship was, and how the events at the end of Keats' life illuminate the whole of their affair. He also discusses Keats' views on religion and the exact nature and progress of the illness that killed him."--Jacket.
