This study documents the constant interest and appreciation of Keats for the works of Spenser. The contents and attitudes of Spenser in the Proems to the six books of "The Faerie Queene" are examined, to sustain that the four introductions prefixed by Keats to the four books of his "Endymion" are strongly influenced by Spenser's epic. The study evidences how this influence consists not only in an imitation and reelaboration of specific themes but also in their reproposal in a contrary and contrasting sense.
