Charles Armitage Brown, businessman, essayist, critic, and occasional playwright, is best remembered today as an intimate friend of Keats. He was also a lively and entertaining raconteur, and his letters, aside from their value as source material, are worth reading purely for literary enjoyment. This is the first collection of all Brown’s extant letters and includes 142 letters by him, thirteen letters to him or pertaining to his correspondence, and two related documents. This material—more than half of which has not been published before—provides, together with the introduction and notes, a full portrait of Brown and brings out several new facts about the Keats circle.
