I think this may have been linked before but these are well worth listening to:

Puts our little efforts into the shade somewhat :?

Thanks for the link!

I think we should start our own house of audio recordings of Keats' work.

I call his letters! :D
What though the field be lost?
All is not lost; the unconquerable Will,
And study of revenge, immortal hate,
And courage never to submit or yield:
And what is else not to be overcome?

We've actually done some audio versions of Keats's poems and letters. They're on this site. . .somewhere. . .

Anyway, I think we did a fabulous job! It's one thing when you're an actor paid to read aloud, but it means so much more when it comes from those who really *care* about the work! :)

Darthoutis, if you want to contribute, please do! I'd love to hear some more audio versions of Keats's letters!

We need to hear some audio from the ladies...Miss Malia? Credo? I wonder if my reading would even do his words justice... :( :shock: :oops:

I've done a few already, and I *think* I'm still set up to record via iMovie. . .I'll see what I can do. I can perhaps read some letters from Fanny Brawne to Fanny Keats.

Ah! a movie - now there's an idea.

I could even dress up in faux-period dress and do a reading.

I sense a project. Where's my camera?

Haha :D

Watch this space...

That would be a treat, Miss Malia...Credo could play in the made- for-forum movie--remember her period silhouette? :wink:

Umm. . .I think my post may have been misinterpreted! :lol: I use iMovie to record *audio* clips. I haven't done a Keats video and I don't expect to do one anytime soon (especially as I don't have a video camera). However it would be cool to see someone else do one!

How can you tell if a poet is romantic?
Count the no. of times they try to slip the end rhyme love/above in while your not looking :D
Me, dead romantic because i've never brought flowers,a lottery ticket, or looked at a porn sight.
And, of course as a bit of a wanker (do i mean poet), that must be the truth.
Denise who do you think should read this stuff? :wink:
