From The London Magazine April 1821
I floated with, about that melancholy storm.
By John Keats
This sonnet was written in February 1819. Keats copied it into a letter sent to his brother a sister-in -law, George and Georgiana Keats. Composed just days before ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci’, one of his most famous works, this sonnet shows clear similarities in theme and content. Published in The London Magazine only a couple of months after Keats’ death, it’s inclusion is a testament to the ongoing dedication to the work of the younger Romantics demonstrated by the magazine under the editorship of John Scott.
