LETTERS OF FANNY BRAWNE TO FANNT KEATS -- 1820-1824

Here for the first time are 31 letters written by the poet's love to the poot's sister. Their previous inaccessibility gives them their present value, for in themselves they are not particularly revealing. One realizes the profound love Fanny Brawne felt for him in the letters before his death. The later letters contain bits of comment on the passing show. Pleasant to read -- have an aura of the period, but we could wish they had concerned themselves more with Keats. Important for Keats collectors, etc. They show Fanny Brawne as a genuine person.
