Who was John Keats?

  • John Keats was born on October 31, 1795 to Thomas and Frances Keats. He was the fourth child and the oldest of his siblings.

  • Tragically his father died when he was eight years old, after being trampled by a horse. After the death of his father the family struggled financially to the point where John’s mother re-married and lost a big portion of their money. She left them in the care of her mom, after the second marriage was unsuccessful. She later returned but died of tuberculosis the same disease that claimed John’s life.

  • During this time John found peace and tranquility in literature.

  • John became aware of the human state that included suffering and loss. This would later be the base of where John’s later poetry surfaced
