Keats at Teignmouth

Keats House, Northumberland Place; which may or may not be where John Keats and his ailing brother, Tom, lodged with the Jeffrey family during his two months in Teignmouth. Houses in the area have been renumbered many times since then, and in the early nineteenth-century the street was known as the Strand. From Keats’ letters it would seem that he stayed at a corner property with a view of the river, newly built on land reclaimed from a marsh. It sounds like an uncomfortable place to spend the winter, even for a healthy person, and unlikely to enjoy the ‘very beneficial climate’ described in contemporary guidebooks

  1. Hola Rocío, mi inglés es terrible, estudié frances pero bueno nos hablas de la casa de un admirado poeta Jhon Keats, lo que no se es sí se trata de su casa natalicia, Parece que las guias lo describen como un agradable lugar donde pasar el verano.
    Me gusta este poeta romántico y melancólico y que tuvo una vida trágica y efimera.
    Un beso
