This chapter examines the political points of contact between Bryan Cornwall and John Keats. It discusses the poems of Cornwall, Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley written weeks after the 1819 Peterloo Massacre and suggests that these works amount to political conservation. These are Cornwall's Autumn, Keats' To Autumn and Shelley's Ode to the West Wind. This chapter also considers Leigh Hunt's championing of Cornwall and Cornwall's contribution to the Cockney School dissent.
