This book surveys the poetic endeavour of John Keats and urges that his true poetry is uniquely constituted by being uttered through three artificial masks, rather than through the natural voice of his quotidian self. Keats's great achievement, the book argues, can only be ascertained by means of a resuscitation of the defunct critical category of 'genius', as that informs his use of the masks. The Masks of Keats thus constitutes a criticism of and rebuke to
the deconstructive approach, which must treat all texts as equal and must entirely forgo the conception of quality.

English Studies McFarland refreshingly refuses to overpraise the great mass of downright bad poetry of which Keats was guilty, in order to see his achievements more clearly

Seamus Perry The book is tough-mindedly lucid; it has a firm sense of its overall purpose and a strong conviction about its judgements, and quite right too; yet it still allows some nice local displays of flamboyance ... McFarland is very eloquent on the dreadful, and dreadfully self-aware, brevity of Keats's life
