This little 1913 edition of Keats' poetry is delightfully annotated, even with handwritten instructions on 'How to read Odes'
"in ascending scale of emotion...
1. relaxed absorption
2. Psyche
3. Melancholy"
It is lovely to read another's thougths about this, and they are here aplenty, in neat, pencilled comments throughout the book. I'm doing a MOOC on literature and mental health - and how poetry can stop you in your tracks, focus your mind, remove extraneous thought and therefore reduce stress. Not all poems for everyone, but if you've read this far, I reckon you may have a yen about what I'm on about.
There are some very expensive editions of this book available on other online bookshops, and this one, while really quite gorgeous, is obviously well used.
This is the 1913 edition of the 1906 publication, hardcover and 383 pages.
