John Keats "Autumn Days" by Amanda White
A collage portrait of Wentworth Place (now Keats House) where Romantic poet John Keats lived from 1818 to 1820. It was here Keats wrote some of his best-loved poems and fell in love with the girl literally next door, Fanny Brawne, who with her family occupied the right-hand side of the house. During their brief and tragically short engagement he wrote Fanny many letters, in some of which he mentioned "their" thrush, singing in the garden. It was in autumn that the dying Keats left Wentworth Place, bound for Italy, in search of a kinder climate. It was also the season which inspired him to write what is considered to be one of the most perfect poems in the English language, To Autumn.
