Keats Was A Bona Fide Opium Addict, Says New Bio
"John Keats, ... a devotee of aesthetic isolation who swooned at the thought of his so-called 'bright star' Fanny Brawne and succumbed to TB when he was 25, was an opium addict. The claim is made in a new biography, to be published on Monday, by Prof Nicholas Roe." The Guardian (UK) 09/21/12
