The present book deals with the conception of poetry as viewed by two of the Romantic poets, each in his own distinct context, that is to say, the English John Keats and the Arab Abu-Alqqassem Alshabbi. Brevity of life, poetic prodigy and common belief in the mission of the poet are among many factors that would bring the two poets together. Keats and Alshabbi were viciously and harshly received during their lives. However, they were praised, rewarded and renowned posthumously. They are creative voices that rarely happen to be in life.
