Be inspired by Lamia etc

Deanna Rodger and Dean Atta read and respond to ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’

Keats’s third and final volume of poetry, Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St. Agnes, and Other Poems, was published in 1820 and contains many of the poems for which Keats is best known today, including the odes written in spring to autumn 1819. To mark the 200th anniversary of its publication, and to accompany our new online exhibition, Keats’s Last Book, the Keats House Poets have picked their favourite Keats poem to read and written their own original poetry as a response.

Watch Deanna Rodger and Dean Atta, who chose to read their favourite Keats poem, ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’, together and compose an individual response each.
