The English poet Keats was born into comfortable circumstances in 1795. He had a good education. His father died in an accident when he was in his early teens and he took up the profession of surgeon. He was however writing poetry and he was soon recognised by his discerning friends as someone quite exceptional. He died of tuberculosis at the age of 26. The film traces his brief life and is followed by an overview of his delightful work.
