John Keats (1795-1821), English Romantic poet. He initially trained as an apothecary (pharmacist) but gave up that career in favour of writing. His best work was written in 1818-1819, and includes The Eve of St Agnes and Isabella. He contracted tuberculosis in 1820, and left England for Rome, where he died. He is regarded as one of the most important poets of the Romantic movement. This concentrated on the expression of personal emotions. Its leading English exponents, along with Keats, included Byron, Coleridge and Wordsworth.
