In this chapter I want to set Keats’s poetry within the context of the period in which he lived, and particularly with regard to Romanticism, the revolutionary movement in art that emerged towards the end of the eighteenth century. It will be useful to see how Keats’s contemporary poets worked with some similar themes and literary interests, and with this in mind I have arranged the chapter under the following headings: (i) The Origins of Romanticism, (ii) Nature, (iii) The Imagination, (iv) Feeling, (v) The Writer, (vi) Language, (vii) Romanticism after Keats.
