John Keats: Presence and absence

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

Exploring the life and afterlives of one of Britain’s best-loved poets, this tablecase display features the rarely seen autograph manuscript of Keats’s masterpiece, 'Ode to a Nightingale'. Visitors can also view the miniature portrait of Keats that he gave to his ‘bright star’, Fanny Brawne, when he left for Rome, never to return.
