Rebel Angel at Keats House

Towards the end of his short life (he died at the age of 25), Keats shared half of Wentworth Place with his friend Charles Brown. For some time, his beloved Fanny Brawne, the love of his life, and her mother, sister and brother lived in the other half of the house.

The house is now the Keats House, in Keats Grove, in Hampstead. It is a wonderful museum of things Keatsian.

On the shelves of its merchandise shop, you will find copies of Rebel Angel, on sale at £9.99.

If you're there, be sure to buy a copy.

" The academic background to the book is unsurpassed ... the life and death of a tragic genius, vividly portrayed in this work. "
