'...Jeffrey Robinson devotes his efforts to dislodging Keats from the nineteenth century cultural milieu that defined his identity as a poet...Robinson is well read in the poetry of his own generation, in English and in other languages, and he uses this experience effectively as he considers the resonance of Keats in contemporary poetic practice...The book provides a valuable service...Intending to emphasize the highly volatile nature of reading an duse of evidence he employs a collage format-with quick shifts of focus, content, even texture and genre...I myself found (to my surprise - the journey exhilarating...Robinson belongs to no school; he has excused himself from discipleship. Eschewing the criticism that barters poetry for life and poetry for history (90), he has written a freshly inquisitive approach to central...critical questions...Robinson is feeling his way toward a radically new understanding of Keats...This book could signal a new era in Keats studies.' - Robert M. Ryan, The Wordsworth Circle
