And "if I am to lose him I will lose everything."
And biographers still claim that she didn't love him. :!: :?:

When I first read this letter I was very moved. It reads to me that he was her EVERYTHING- that without him life would be dulled.

Of course! Wouldn't it have done the same to you IF . . . !
You know, I (we) have no stake in his life, obviously, but many times I perceive him all around and when I think of his terrible death I'm emotionally drained.

I can understand this. I always think what a tragic loss it is. His work for one was only getting better, imagine how much he could and would have written. As a person it's even more so of a loss. I can understand why Shelley felt compelled to write Adonais. It's awful but I wish it had been any of the other poets.

Aw don't be sad Ennis- he wouldn't want you to be and he is in a far far better place now... :D

17th September 1821: and London. It's a miracle that damn journey didn't kill him; it may have if Severn didn't accompany him! In a way, I'm glad he died and was buried in Rome, because when those damn Germans tried to bomb London out of existence, the Keats-Jennings vault was demolished, and I'm sure he would have been interred with the rest of his family. At least that one last wish of his: "O, to be buried near where she lives." didn't materialize.
