Keats scholarship in general has an unusually interesting history and it has involved some eminent—and odd—Bostonians in particular: Louise Imogen Guiney, poet and essayist; Amy Lowell, Keats’ biographer; Louis A. Holman, renowned collector of Keatsiana; and Fred Holland Day, eccentric printer, photographer, and bibliophile. More than 100 hitherto unpublished letters of the group, and a delightful Introduction by Hyder Edward Rollins, make up this book. It includes vivid character sketches of the Boston coterie; the diverting story, here related for the first time, of the Fanny Brawne–Fanny Keats letters (around which centered the feuds and friendships of these Keats enthusiasts); and an account of how Amy Lowell gathered the materials for her famous biography of Keats. Altogether, Keats and the Bostonians is a delightful and amusing book.
