    Story
    (8)

    John Keats was largely unappreciated during his lifetime and died in Rome at the age of 26. Most of his 150 poems were written in just nine extraordinary months in 1819. This selection contains some of his finest works, including the principal "Odes", "La Belle Dame Sans Merci", "Old Meg", and "Much Have I Travelled".

    C. Cobb says: "Here is the list of poems in this collection"
    "It sounds like John Keats thinking..."

    Way up there


    What did you like best about this story?

    "Why did I laugh tonight?"


    What does Samuel West and Michael Sheen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Compelling evidence of the centrality of prosopopoeia to the reception of the lyric.

    = They read with expression, conveying thoughts and feelings plausibly associated with the words of the poems.
    If you liked the movie "Bright Star," you'll like this.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The change of voice -- and reader?--in order to render "Ode on Melancholy" properly. Its language is very artificial and this was done histrionically and well.


    Any additional comments?

    Sir Ralph Richardson' s reading aloud of Keats poems is fascinatingly different but also very pleasing.
