Homes of the Romantic Age Poets

Homes of the Romantic Age PoetsJohn Keats’s short but interesting life played out in part inside this home in London’s Hampstead neighborhood, a community known for its creative and intellectual residents. Originally called Wentworth Place, but now known as Keats House, the interior was divided into two parts. The poet lodged in one side, and an attractive young woman, Fanny Brawne, lived in the other; the two soon fell deeply in love. Keats was known for his often-somber verse, and the garden here features a “melancholy border,” planted in white and deep purple flowers—a nod to his poem “Ode to Melancholy.”
