John Keats (1795-1821) was a licensed apothecary, but never practised, devoting his time to poetry. His major works include the poems The Fall of Hyperion and the blank verse epic, Endymion: A Poetic Romance (1818). Many of his most major and well-known works are collected in his third volume, Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St Agnes and Other poems (1820), which includes his famous Odes. Keats died in Rome in 1821, aged 25. His letters were first published in 1848.
