    "Keats' magical way with words will transport you back to an era of irrepressible romance and sensuality. His Complete Works are a joy to read and one of the greats of the romantic poets' works."

    "This an excellent collection of Whitman’s civil war poetry and the price is definitely right. But it’s definitely not romantic. And any connection to LGBT is tenuous at best, based on some academic theories that Whitman was gay. So, if you’re looking for romantic LGBT poetry, this is not it."
