She insits it is a poem by John Keats, while the other male actor denies and insists that it is by Percy B. Shelly.

Does anybody know whose poem this is for sure?

Uh. . . couldn't say, since I haven't seen that movie in many, many years. Is there any way you can post the text?

Although the lines have been changed a bit (probably for the movie) that poem is by Shelley--called "Arethusa"--published in 1820 in a volume with other famous poems by him, including "The Hymn of Pan" and "Song of Proserpine." :wink:

awesome dks.
thanks so much.
i thought it might be shelly, since it is even said in the movie,
but since i was trying to get to the original quote of the poem, it is nice to know that the poem had been altered a bit for the movie.
i ll have to check it out.

You're very welcome. Shelley truly accessed the ghosts in the hall everytime he wrote, wouldn't you say? :wink:
