About the Book

"Endymion; A Poetic Romance" is a four-book epic poem written by John Keats, one of the most significant Romantic poets of the 19th century. The poem tells the story of Endymion, a young shepherd boy who falls in love with the Moon Goddess, Cynthia. Endymion, in his quest to be reunited with Cynthia, embarks on a journey through different realms of the universe, encountering various mythical creatures and challenges along the way. The poem is known for its rich and vivid descriptions of nature and the cosmos, as well as its exploration of themes such as love, beauty, and the power of imagination. Throughout the poem, Keats draws on Greek mythology and symbolism to explore deeper philosophical and metaphysical themes. The poem is also marked by Keats' characteristic melancholic tone and his fascination with the transience of life and beauty. While "Endymion; A Poetic Romance" was not initially well-received by critics, it has since come to be regarded as a significant work in Keats' oeuvre and as an important contribution to the Romantic literary tradition.

About Author

John Keats

John Keats was an English poet from the second generation of Romantic poets. He was born on October 31, 1795, and died on February 23, 1821. When he died at age 25, he had been writing poems for less than four years. During his life, people didn't care much about his works, but after he died, his fame grew quickly. By the end of the century, he was included in the canon of English literature. He had a big impact on many writers of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and the Encyclopedia Britannica of 1888 called one of his odes "one of the final masterpieces." Jorge Luis Borges said that his first meeting with Keats was something he would remember for the rest of his life. Keats' style, especially in the series of odes, was "heavily loaded with sensualities." Like most Romantics, he used images from nature to show how strong his feelings were. His poems and letters, like "Ode to a Nightingale","Ode on a Grecian Urn","Sleep and Poetry," and "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer," are still some of the most popular and studied pieces of English literature today.
