Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The first theatre performance Keats had attended is hitherto thought to be Monday, 15 December 1817, where he saw Edmund Kean on stage in Richard III. Keats's review of Kean's performance, published in The Champion newspaper however, suggests that he might have attended the theatre at an earlier date.
