Keats and Domestic Gardens 1795-1821

This lecture will explore Regency Gardens from a new perspective.


Using Keats’s poetry as a thread and the beautifully restored gardens of Keats House as the setting, this lecture will explore Regency Gardens from a new perspective. Images will range from the desire to educate, and the sound domesticity of John Claudius Loudon’s writings and illustrations, to Joseph Banks and Kew for botany and the exotic and Cobbett for vegetables and opinion. Trained as an apothecary, we will trace the plants Keats would have known as poisons and medicine as well as wild flowers and sweet scents with thoughts of Fanny Brawne.
