Having never read anything by Keats before, but having heard a lot of it, I was really looking forward to this collection of five of his poems.
The poem of the title is the longest and it is, as his other poems, very visual. It really tells a story, and while this is a nice change from the other poetry so far in the Little Black Classic collection, it also became slightly dull after a while. It is a long story, and my thought wandered after a while, wondering if it couldn’t have been a bit shorter.
Nevertheless a nice introduction.
The Eve of St Agnes (Little Black Classics #13) – John Keats
