Research on Mythology and Keats by a Master's Student

Hello people!

My Master's course is about to begin and I need some help: I have to choose modules and I am trying to combine my interest in the Romantic poets (Keats, in particular) and Mythological & Folklore analysis. Can you help me by indicating whether you think such a combination would be plausible?

Depends what you mean by plausible, do you mean will it be useful in employment, helpful in further study or what? Are you thinking of doing a or a P.H.D. or something?
It certainly would be very interesting I think, and reading Keats or any of the poets of that era, or earlier, they used a lot of mythological and classical references which can be offputiingn and intimidating if you don't understand the references, which if you were to study mythology and folklore you would understand much better.
