This chapter discusses the contribution of Bryan Cornwall in the posthumous redemption of John Keats as a poet. It discusses his sentimental poetic tribute An Elegy on the Death of the poet Keats which predates Percy Bysshe Shelley's own elegy on Keats' death, Adonais. It explains that Cornwall described Keats in his elegy as a delicate, neglected, tragic genius. This chapter also highlights the fact that this elegy was with other poems collected about Keats' death which is symptomatic of contemporary neglect of Cornwall.

Keywords:   Bryan Cornwall, John Keats, poetic tribute, An Elegy on the Death of the poet Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Adonais, elegy
