If anyone is interested there is a website with various literary t-shirts available. I recently purchased a Finnegan's Wake t from there online catalogue. Here's the link: http://shop.cafepress.com/john-keats They even have a I love Percy Shelley bar b q apron which is a wonderful image. I can't see Shelley grilling burgers...sailing of course....but burgers? :)

You have just given me an idea- we have a computer shop in Liverpool and he can print almost anything on a t- shirt, but i'm not too keen on that style of clothing, but I could get him to print on a material to make a Keats/literary wall hanging! :D

who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

That is hilarious Petrarch! I love it--though I have a feeling Keats, himself, would be both aghast and perhaps a *bit* amused at himself and his words being turned into buttons, mugs and T-shirts. Of them all, I really like the black T with the butterfly and the words "positively Keatsian" on it. Great humor there, I think. But the idea of a BBQ apron with a Shelley theme is really funny. I'm *sure* that was done as bit of ironic humor! I guess some English professor would wear it when he or she had fellow professors over for dinner one night. . .nerdy, but oddly, cool. :lol:

hi guys this is my favorite few line of Keats poem hope you like it too.....

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells.
