The London Magazine tote bags are here, and they’re a little bit special. Featuring a quote from ‘A Dream’ by John Keats, a sonnet originally published in The London Magazine in 1821.

Composed by Keats in April 1819 and sent in a letter to his brother and sister-in-law, George and Georgiana Keats, it is possible to draw links in the sonnet’s theme and language with his later ballad ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci’, written just days later.

As a celebration of The London Magazine’s almost 300-year history or publishing work by the most eminent writers of the day, we’ve chosen this sonnet to feature on our limited edition tote bags. Get hold of one in our shop or receive one free with a 12 month subscription to the magazine.
