Event Details

November 12 • Noon
John Keats’s biographers have rarely been fair to George Keats (1797–1841)—pushing him to the background as the younger brother, painting him as a prodigal son, or labeling him as the “business brother.” Some have even condemned him as a heartless villain who took more than his fair share of an inheritance and abandoned the ailing poet to pursue his own interests. In this authoritative biography, author Lawrence M. Crutcher demonstrates that George Keats deserves better. Crutcher traces his subject from Regency London to the American frontier, correcting the misconceptions surrounding the Keats brothers’ relationship and revealing the details of George’s remarkable life in Louisville, Kentucky.


Lawrence Crutcher is the great-great-great-grandson of George Keats and the author of The Keats Family. He lives in San Francisco, California.
