Caricatures

Yikes. Googling around after some images for my new web site, I came across this caricature of Keats. As it happens, one of the few poets he bothered to draw (no Shakespeare, even).

8) Thanks, that's great.

It looks disturbingly like a puppet of ex-British PM Margaret Thatcher from the old British T.V. show Spitting Image :roll:

Oh my god, that's terrible! hehe I hope I don't have nightmares tonight. . .he *does* sort of look like the Thatcher puppet, doesn't he?

Though this wasn't a characiture, I thought that the best impression I've ever seen of Keats (how he *looked* anyway) was when Eric Idol dressed as Keats for a Monty Python sketch. The sketch was about a game show where great dead English poets/writers participated to win a prize. Sadly, Keats was one of the first eliminated :cry: But Shelly hung in there for a while! hehe
