The second section describes what is revealed within the letters regarding his family, social life and many other aspects within his life and career as a poet.

From the Paper:

"Keats' letters are a series of letters to his family and friends, expressing his views upon a wide range of issues, not the least of which were literary, moral and philosophical. It is deemed obvious that from his letters creates a man who had so much to say but so little time and space to say it all, and this becomes clear as the letters stray from one subject to another. It is apparent in many of his letters that his ideas are not fully developed and the reader can easily see his thoughts and ideas taking shape as he gropes for the right words. Within these letters Keats shows his mind at word as he grappled with his ideas about poetry, about the actual nature of a poet and the obvious relationships between poetry, reality, philosophy and most importantly feelings. He also had the ability to conjure up amazing imagery and phrases within his letters."
