So Bright and Delicate: Love Letters and Poems of John Keats to Fanny Brawne

by John Keats, with an introduction by Jane Campion - £7.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141442471 | ISBN 10: 0141442476

John Keats died aged just twenty-five. He left behind some of the most exquisite and moving verse and love letters ever written, inspired by his great love for Fanny Brawne.
 
Although they knew each other for just a few short years and spent a great deal of that time apart - separated by Keats' worsening illness, which forced a move abroad - Keats wrote again and again about and to his love, right until his very last poem, called simply 'To Fanny'. She, in turn, would wear the ring he had given her until her death.
 
So Bright and Delicate is the passionate, heartrending story of this tragic affair, told through the private notes and public art of a great poet.
