Stále svěží poezie básníka,jehož osud bývá srovnáván s osudem Karla Hynka Máchy V nepřekonaném překladu Hany Žantovské znovu vychází výbor z básnického díla anglického romantického básníka Johna Keatse (1795–1821), opatřený poznámkami překladatelky a doslovem. Ne náhodou bývá jeho život a dílo i přijetí, jehož se mu dostalo od kritiků, srovnáván s osudy a dílem K. H. Máchy, byť se tito mimořádní básníci nikdy nemohli setkat. Výbor představuje nejznámější a nejpůsobivější Keatsovy básně, z nichž jmenujme alespoň Předvečer svaté Anežky, Óda na slavíka, Homérovi, Endymion (úvodní verše) jako připomínku básníkova obdivu k řecké mytologii i jedinečných poém, balad a sonetů, jež jeho dílo neodmyslitelně vřadily do světového písemnictví.

Ana Bisetová, neprávem obviněná z vraždy a čekající na smrt v ďábelském žaláři na Vysočině, už ztratila naději na vysvobození. Ale osud půvabné léčitelky se rázem změní, když se objeví neznámý muž s kápí, její zachránce. Po chvatném útěku se Ana usadí v tiché vesničce, kde nikdo nezná její minulost ani pověst. A tak ani neočekává, že se ještě někdy setká se svým záhadným vysvoboditelem… Niall MacCurran je bojovník s riskantním posláním: má odhalit nebezpečí, které hrozí království a panovníkovi. Jakmile vysvobodí Anu, uvědomí si, že on sám bude potřebovat její pomoc, aby mohl svůj úkol splnit. Sílící cit ke křehké, avšak houževnaté krásce ohrozí bezpečí obou – a je možné, že ani Aniny léčitelské schopnosti nedokážou zachránit jejich lásku či životy.

John Keats's abiding poetic legacy is one of extraordinary and triumphant richness. Before the moment of 'self-will' when he declared his intention to be a poet, Keats (1795-1821) had chosen the medical profession. His apothecary's training influenced his conception of poetry as an art that could mitigate the world's suffering. Keats's generous spirit triumphed over personal sadness, finding expression in his concept of life as a 'vale of Soul-making' rather than a vale of tears. He published only three volumes before his death at the age of 25, and, while many of his contemporaries quickly recognized his genius, snobbery and political hostility led the Tory press to vilify him. This selection, chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition of Keats's major works, demonstrates the remarkable growth in maturity of his verse, from early poems such as 'Imitation of Spenser' and 'Ode to Apollo' to later work such as 'The Eve of St Agnes', 'Ode to a Nightingale', and 'To Autumn'. Elizabeth Cook's introduction, notes and glossary of classical names offer helpful insights into Keats's life and work.
This authoritative edition was originally published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode. It brings together a unique combination of Keats's poetry and prose - all the major poems, complemented by a gen erous selection of Keats's letters - to give the essence of his work and thinking. In his tragically short life Keats wrote an astonishing number of superb poems; his stature as one of the foremost poets of the Romantic movement remains unassailable. This volume contains all the poetry published during his lifetime, including Endymion in its entirety, the Odes, 'Lamia', and both versions of 'Hyperion'. The poetry is presented in chronological sequence, illustrating the staggering speed with whic h Keats's work matured. Further insight into his creative process is given by reproducing, in their original form, a number of poems that were published posthumously. Keats's letters are admired almost as much as his poetry and were described by T. S . Eliot as 'certainly the most notable and most important ever written by any English poet'. They provide the best biographical detail available and shed invaluable light on Keats's poems.

Arguably the greatest of all the English Romantic poets, John Keats left behind him an astonishingly large body of work almost as remarkable for its maturity as for its beauty. Whether in longer narrative works like 'The Eve of St Agnes', or in such sonnets as 'On First Looking Into Chapman's Homer', or in magnificent odes like those 'To a Nightingale' and 'To Autumn', his verse resonates with lyricism and with sensuous imagery, however melancholy his tone or his subject. His finest poems are among the greatest in the language; almost all of them strike a chord in the heart of even the most jaded reader. This compact selection includes many of Keats's greatest shorter poems, as well as extracts from his longer works.
