Notes: A classic study of Keats's annotations in his copies of Shakespeare and a foundational work in the study of marginalia.
"Spurgeon describes the two texts of Shakespeare marked by Keats, transcribes (mostly accurately) the markings on five plays, lists what she considers to be parallels between The Tempest and Endymion, and presents a fondly appreciative Introductory Essay on the links between the writers. Her book is now difficult to obtain..."—R. S. White, Keats as a Reader of Shakespeare (1987).
