Keats' Endymion book. John Keats' Endymion, with notes and introduction by Stephen T. Steinhoff.

Keats' Endymion book.

Steinhoff in his introduction and notes is as illuminating on the influences of the Elizabethans, Milton, and the early Romantics on Keats as he is in his own reading of the poem. Endymion: A Poetic Romance. The stretched metre of an antique song". Inscribed to the memory of thomas chatterton.

Endymion is a poem by John Keats first published in 1818 by Taylor and Hessey of Fleet Street in London. It begins with the line "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever". Endymion is written in rhyming couplets in iambic pentameter (also known as heroic couplets). Keats based the poem on the Greek myth of Endymion, the shepherd beloved of the moon goddess Selene. The poem elaborates on the original story and renames Selene "Cynthia" (an alternative name for Artemis).

The first book of Endymion by John Keats details the speaker’s beliefs regarding the power of beauty and his intentions to tell the story of Endymion. The poem begins with the speaker describing at length the power he believes that beauty holds over human life. He sees it as being a guiding force that, when accepted and appreciated, enters into one’s heart and helps to clear one’s path through life. Once one fully knows beauty, it will never leave. It transforms the onlooker into the beautiful object.

John Keats was a great English poet, and one of the youngest poets of the Romantic movement. He was born in Moorefield, London in 1795. When he was just 8 years old, his father, Thomas Keats, died. He got discouraged due to some bad press his long poem Endymion received from the critics. Shortly after his move to Hampstead, the Brawne family also moved to the area. Keat’s circle of friends, such as Leigh Hunt and Percy Bysshe Shelley, appreciated his poetry and supported him during tough times. Their appreciation and support combined with his reading of Edmund Spenser’s Faerie Queene shaped his writing style.
