This month we are marking the bicentenary of London’s much loved poet, John Keats, who died in Rome on 24 Feb 1821, aged 25.
Our first set of poems in 2021 go live on the Tube on Feb 8th featuring two poems by Keats, a stanza from Shelley’s elegy for his fellow-poet, and poems by Jamaican, Polish and English poets related to Keats’s love of art and nature.
This month we also celebrate the poetry and culture of Greece, the land to which Keats loved to travel in his imagination; we have Love poems for Valentines Day; London poems about the city as it was in Keats’s time and our own time; three poems by contemporary Polish poets and 2 Chinese poems for the start of the Year of the Ox.
