Bright Star

I really wanted to see Bright Star in the theatre, but it looks like that won't be happening. So I will have to wait until it comes out on DVD. It looks really good. Bright Star is a drama based on the three-year romance between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, which was cut short by Keats’ untimely death at age 25.

This is the book that I borrowed from the library to learn more about Keats. It is 656 pages long, and no, I didn't read the entire book. But it is very detailed, and very informative. Here is a wonderful compilation on the history of John Keats and Fanny Brawne. If you have the chance, read the letters that John wrote to Fanny. They are truly beautiful.
