Title: Life Of John Keats
Description: Jonathan Cape, UK, 1929. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Good. 272 pages. Albert Erlande [Translated From The French By Marion Robinson]. ?That the widespread interest taken in Keats in England to-day, a hundred years after his death, is not a local phenomenon, is shown by this life of the poet, written by a Frenchman, himself a poet, in order to introduce to his countrymen one whom he regards as a vital force in literature. M. Erlande has nothing, naturally, to add to our actual knowledge of the facts of Keats' life beyond what Miss Lowell's exhaustive researches had laid bare; nor, on the interpretative side Mr. Middleton Murry's. But in showing us this most English of our poets through the eyes of a Frenchman, he contrives to give us a fresh view of him; the lights and shadows fall in other places, and we notice significations which, by their very familiarity, had passed unnoticed, until the shifting of the lamp threw them into relief. But apart from this interest, M. Erlandc's hook supplies a definite want. Sir Sidney Colvin's Life, for so many years a standard one, was written before Miss Lowell's mass of new detail was available: while hers, though essential for any exhaustive study, is on too large a scale forthe general reader. M. Erlande has written a Life which is a once up-to-date as to facts and compact as to size.?
