John Keats: a short life in nine poems and one epigraph

Lucasta Miller

Susan Loewe Memorial Lecture

Lucasta Miller is a writer and literary journalist.  She is the author of The Bronte Myth, and of a biography of Lord Byron and L.E.L, an account of ‘the lost life and scandalous death of Elizabeth Landon, the celebrated female Byron’.  Her latest book is a biography of Keats, in which she disputes the idea that he was a rarified, ascetic figure and reveals him as a ‘fully embodied’ young man, as greedy for sensation as for roast beef sandwiches. In the course of her biography she guides us through nine of Keats’ most famous poems.

Lucasta Miller will be in conversation with the literary critic John Mullan.

Please book  by 1pm on the day of the lecture. You can book for each individual lecture or book for the entire Autumn season.
