Sixth Bicentennial John Keats Conference

Keats in 1819: Cloudy Trophies, Quiet Power

A Three-Day Keats Foundation Conference at Keats House, Hampstead, London

Friday 17 - Sunday 19 May 2019


Keynote Speakers
Lucasta Miller
Seamus Perry
Emily Rohrbach


The Keats Foundation is delighted to announce its sixth bicentenary conference, ‘Keats in 1819: Cloudy Trophies, Quiet Power’, to be held at Keats House, Hampstead 17-19 May 2019. 

Robert Gittings’s book John Keats: The Living Year described 1819 as ‘the 365 days of a single year’ in which nearly all of Keats’s greatest poems were written: The Eve of St. Agnes, ‘La Belle Dame sans Merci’, the spring Odes, Lamia, and ‘To Autumn’. Now more than 60 years old, Gittings’s book has survived the test of time – but has our view of Keats in 1819 moved on, altered, or acquired new tones? Do we agree that ‘Ode to the Nightingale’ is incontestably a greater poem than ‘Ode on Indolence’? Was ‘Bright Star’ written in 1819, or in some other year? Was Keats’s deteriorating health somehow related to his astonishing creativity in 1819? How did his relationship with Fanny Brawne evolve across the momentous year of ‘Peterloo’? What role did Keats’s places have in the poetry of 1819? Our conference invites explorations of Keats’s life and the cloudy trophies and quiet power of his creativity throughout this remarkable year ¬– and beyond it.  

Proposals for twenty-minute papers are now invited on all aspects of ‘Keats in 1819’ – in his poetry, letters, manuscripts, life, and posthumous reputation (myths and memoirs; biographies; critical reception; creative afterlives and legacies – poetry, painting, imagined lives). Papers will also be welcomed in relation to his circle of friends, including (but not limited to) Fanny Brawne, Charles Brown, Charles Cowden Clarke, Barry Cornwall, William Hazlitt, John and Leigh Hunt, Isabella Jones, the Ollier brothers, John Hamilton Reynolds, Joseph Severn, Percy and Mary Shelley, and John Taylor the publisher. 

For obvious reasons, all papers should have a significant Keats dimension.  

 
Lectures and papers will be presented in the spacious Nightingale Room adjacent to Keats House. We anticipate leisurely walks to explore the Keatsian locality, Hampstead Heath, and Leigh Hunt’s Vale of Health. We will also celebrate the launch of Keats’s Places, edited by Richard Marggraf Turley, a landmark collection of essays drawn from papers at the Keats Foundation’s 2016 Conference at Keats House.
