(Studies in Imagination) by Andres Rodriguez
Has anyone read this? What's it like? The cover and title appeals to me.

John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

Not heard of it before Raphael - looks interesting though.

Raphael, I actually own a copy of The Book of the Heart. I bought it ages ago at my undergrad college from the "final sale" bin. It's a good book to have as part of a Keats collection, because it is really an homage to Keats written by a Keatsian. It is a kind of a "meditation" on Keats, not really a biography or literary analysis in the traditional sense. I haven't looked through my copy in ages; you've got me curious to re-read it!

I like the sound of that- it'll have to go in my Amazon basket! I bought Keats and his Circle today- and it has already posted out- so that should arrive soon ( it's from Britain). That's really quick- my Bright Star DVD was due to be shipped out but hasn't as yet.
I can return the copy of the book to the library finally! I like to look at the people John was writing to as I read the letters!
