This chapter examines the efforts of Bryan Cornwall to redeem the reputation of John Keats, his more talented but commercially unsuccessful rival. It explains that after an unfavorable critical review of Keats' Lamia and Endymion, he sent two letters to the editor of the Edinburgh Magazine and Literary Miscellany in defence of Keats' works. It provides evidence that those letters were written by Cornwall and not by Keats' close friend John Hamilton Reynolds. This chapter also considers the thorny issue of rivalry between Keats and Cornwall and the equally contentious issue of mutual influence.
