THE PATH TO AUTUMN
Keats Exhibition

THE PATH TO AUTUMN: KEATS AND WINCHESTER, 10 SEPTEMBER TO 20 DECEMBER 2019 
John Keats visited Winchester in August and September 1819. The ode 'To Autumn', one of Keats's greatest poems, was inspired by his walks in the countryside around the city. This exhibition explores Winchester in the early 19th century and its influence on Keats.  It also reveals the important place of Winchester College in the early development of Romanticism in literature, and examines the links between Keats and several important poets educated at the school, including William Collins and Joseph Warton. Among the objects on display will be Keats's 'death mask', on loan from Eton College.
