The year 1819 was one of the high achievements for John Keats, a young man only twenty-four years old. Between January and May he composed a series of poems that have made him a poet of lasting fame. Among these are “The Eve of St. Agnes,” “The Eve of St. Marl,” “La Belle Dame Sans Merci,” and the famous odes—“Ode to Psyche,” “Ode to a Nightingale,” “Ode on Melancholy,” “Ode of a Grecian Urn” and “Ode on Indolence.”
