"Mr. Keats left Hampstead."
Let us all think of Fanny Brawne today. 190 years ago today, her man left her -- her one true love. . . And she never saw or even heard from him again!!
I am the first to admit that leaving HER was extremely difficult for KEATS: "I see her figure eternally vanishing" (to ill-quote him), but I also believe that Fanny's feelings concerning the beginning of the "great divorcer" have all too frequently been either totally ignored or brushed aside as irrelevant.
Let's do her justice today (even if it's just reading The Letters and lighting a candle, Raphael).
