George Keats of Kentucky

Lawrence M. Crutcher

University Press of Kentucky

Georgiana continues to party in the palace, and a year later marries a Scotsman, John Jeffrey, who is twenty years younger. James Freeman Clarke writes a touching Sketch of George in The Dial. Isabel Keats dies in the palace of a gunshot wound to the chest, a likely suicide. Jeffrey writes to Monckton Milnes to offer transcriptions of John Keats’ letters, which he provides in a ragged form. Georgiana and Jeffrey have a marital spat, leading to her miscarrying his baby. Jeffrey commences a career of far- flung travels, installing gasworks. They move to Cincinnati, where the marriage settles down, although he is often away. A brief description of the Keats children as adults, including a visit to Emma Keats Speed by Oscar Wilde.
