Just a quick post to
show off let you know that I have been given what I consider to be a huge honour – a place on The Wordsworth Trust Romanticism blog on the fabulous Wordsworth Trust website. As part of the ‘Romantic Readings’ series I write about ‘When I have fears…’, a sonnet that has meant much to me ever since I first discovered my love of John Keats’s writing as twelve year old.
Apparently it has gone down well, and judging by some of the discussions on twitter people have been encouraged to think about their own favourite Keats, and why he still has the power to move us almost 200 years on.
Do go over to the website and if you are interested, read my post and then take a look at the others on the site; I feel really proud to be amongst them. Over the coming weeks there will be a wide variety of other posts by enthusiasts of the Romantic period, discussing the poets, writers and artists who made the decades of the late 18th and early 19th century ones of sublime creativity. You can also follow the blog via the twitter feed @Wordsworthians.
And I have been invited to write another for later in the year. I can’t wait!
P.S. Do comment with your own favourite Keats, either on the site or on here. I always love to hear from fellow Keats admirers…
