Scope and Contents

Typescript notes concerning John Keats and his poetry from identified published sources, as well as Lowell's historical and poetic criticism of his poetry, for her book, John Keats (Boston, 1925). Also contains her typescript transcripts of Keats's letters, copied from the edition by Buxton Forman, The poetical works and other writings of John Keats. Lowell compares some of the published letters to the originals to show differences in wording and spelling. There are two folders of Keats's unpublished (as of 1925) letters in typescript and in the hand of Lowell, transcribed from originals held by variously identified owners. Richard Woodhouse's commonplace book, which Lowell transcribed from a copy held at the Pierpont Morgan Library, contains letters from Woodhouse and from Benjamin Bailey to John Taylor concerning Keats and his poetry.
