Your item must inherit from key-handler-mixin:
(DEFCLASS MyView (key-handler-mixin DIALOG-ITEM) ()
(:DEFAULT-INITARGS :VIEW-POSITION #@(10 10) :VIEW-SIZE #@(50 50)))
(The superclasses must be specified in this order). Now your example
works as you intended. You could base your item on the predefined class
ccl::basic-editable-text-dialog-item, which itself has these superclasses.

I'll bet you do now. Isn't CLOS beautiful? If you want to go further and
create key-receiving items that are editable, see the example file
text-edit-dialog-item.lisp, which does exactly that.
