Georgie Cowan-Turner: ‘This Living Hand’


This Living Hand: Bringing John Keats back from the dead

John Keats died at the tragic age of 25, he was unrecognised in his lifetime and received destructive criticism from the conservative press. This podcast challenges the idea of Keats as solely a tragic figure and asks you to discover more about the man behind the myth.

Georgie Cowan-Turner is a New Museum School trainee based at Keats House.
