The Celtic Revival began more than a century before Yeats and the Irish Literary Renaissance, in resistance to the English colonizing of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Keats and Romantic Celticism is the first full-length study of the pervasive influence of period Celticism upon Keats's work. His unfinished epics, Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion, follow the lead of the Celticists who identified the Titans with the Celts, as he boldly attempted the first epic about the Celts of antiquity. His other poems use many of the early folklore materials collected by Sir Walter Scott that were believed to derive from the Celts. Christine Gallant shows that more than two hundred and fifty traditional folklore motifs of the faerie fill Keats's major poems, as well as minor epistolary ones that have been critically neglected. Faeryland is the setting for his first poem of 1814 as well as his last, left unfinished in his final days. This original study of Keats's major and minor works will be of interest to any Keats scholars, Romanticists, and students of the poet and the period.
