Celebrating John Keats’s bicentenary


This website celebrates what John Keats was doing and writing 200 years ago. For many days we know exactly where he was, who he was seeing and (crucially) what he was writing. Be prepared for busy times in 2018-2020.
To see the most recent anniversary post, click on June 1816.

This website has been compiled and curated by Peter Phillips, a writer and film-maker who has given readings of Keats’s poems and letters at Keats House in Hampstead. Much of the introductory material [John Keats the first 20 years] is based on the paper which I presented at the first conference of the Keats Foundation “Johnny Keats and Johnny Rotten: scandalising the Establishment through subversive expression”.
