The 2017 Keats-Shelley Prize will celebrate the theme 'To a Friend,' commemorating the 200th anniversary of the publication of John Keats' first poetry anthology. Several of the poems in this volume are dedicated to his brothers and to friends, and reflect on the writer's relationships, as he transformed from young medical trainee to young Romantic poet. Please read our blog entry on the inspiration behind this year’s theme.
