With an introduction by Jane Campion. Interesting. May be worth buying for those who've seen the film and wish to read the real Keats, and for existing admirers alike.

This is also being published to coincide with the release of the film. Lovely cover.

I'm also pretty sure the title "So Bright and Delicate" is a quote from one of Keats's letters to Fanny, where he describes her as being "so bright and delicate".

Those two volumes would be a nice addition to a personal Keats library--if only to document that there was at least one time when Keats was brought closer to a mainstream audience. Most of the books I have in my library are the kind of thing only professors and Keats devotes would own. (Kind of obscure stuff! :lol: )

I saw the first book [Vintage Keats] in a bookshop last week and was tempted to get it, but couldn't afford or justify the expense when it has nothing new except a nice cover to recommend it. Perhaps I can sneakily read Jane Campion's introduction in the shop :wink: Don't tell anyone... :mrgreen:
