Keats has always been regarded as one of the principal figures in the Romantic movement, and his stature as a poet has grown steadily through all changes of fashion. His letters, published in 1848 and 1878, have come to be regarded with almost the admiration given to his poetry. They mix everyday events with wit and high spirits as well as the profoundest thoughts on love, poetry and the nature of man.
