Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The article deals with the theme of the presence and influence of the work of the medieval poet Chaucer on the poetry of Keats. Four phases of influence are identified, each characterized by the mediation of a specific intermediary: Leigh Hunt, William Hazlitt, John Dryden, and, in the final phase, by Keats, who acts as mediator for himself. The contribution of the various authors to the knowledge and use, on the part of Keats, of Chaucer, is identified and critically commented as also the final result of their mediation as evidenced in the specific poems that are commented and evaluated critically and in detail.
