Mensagem: 

I assume you mean , "which of the following 4 alternatives do you prefer?"

 

1. Keats may be ranked among those romantic poets who died young.
3. We rank Keats as one of those romantic poets who died young.

1 & 3 are essentially the same with a passive - active verb contrast

 

2. As much as some of those young romantic poets died, so did Keats.

I certainly would not choose 2

 

And 4 is a bit brusque, it seems to direct

 

So 1 or 2 are my preference
