1908. It is possible for biography, sometimes, to attain the dramatic vitality of fiction. Modern scholarship demands, of course, that there shall be no transgressions against the truth. In this book I have endeavored to conceive of Keats as the protagonist of a domestic drama, coming upon a stage of shifting scenes, as in the old chronicle-histories, coming playing his part, and passing tragically under the blight. I have tried to select the significant moments, to reproduce the authentic local color of his daily life and to make him live, in a world of good cheer and vexation as a vivid reality.
