‘The Death of John Keats’ - Narrated by Bob Geldof

Tuesday 23 February 2021 — Tuesday 31 August 2021

On 23 February 2021, the bicentenary of Keats's death in Rome, we're premiering 'The Death of Keats' narrated by Bob Geldof. This immersive video story is best enjoyed with a VR headset so you can feel you're physically in Keats's final dwelling place and final resting place, but fully accessible without.

Recounting, through readings from letters, Keats's trip to Italy, his time in the House, and his death, this will be the first in a series of video stories from the Keats-Shelley House to mark the bicentenaries of Keats's and Shelley's deaths.

Follow the full story of John Keats' Final Voyage from London to Rome on our interractive Google Earth map, combining narrative, manuscripts, original letters, images and video.
