THE HOUSE AT HAMPSTEAD WHERE KEATS COMPOSED HIS "ODE TO A NIGHTINGALE"

THE HOUSE AT HAMPSTEAD WHERE KEATS COMPOSED HIS

In the garden of Lawn Bank John Keats wrote his "Ode to a Nightingale," and it was during his stay in this house, seemingly as a sort of paying guest of the Browns, that he conceived his romantic passion for Fanny Brawne, who lived next door. Wentworth Place, where the house stood, has since been renamed Keats Grove, and the house itself has been acquired by the public and is maintained as a Keats memorial museum. The poet had previously occupied lodgings in Well Walk, close by.
