Now the UK's Telegraph is airing claims by Dr Thomas Dormandy that "opium helped to inspire Keats's great odes". The odes were, he argues, a product of "the magical conspiracy between opium, tuberculosis and God."http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/books/9164151/Brilliant-dreams-were-born-of-the-black-stuff.html
Enough already! I think I'm going to quit reading newspapers altogether and stick solely to books
. I'll be giving Dormandy's book a wide berth.

I think he's possibly confusing Keats with Coleridge...
