Literary Map of Britain and Northern Ireland

Love this map!:

Perhaps a little bizarrely (?) Keats is positioned on the Isle of Wight. He may have visited, but I would have thought his association with London was much greater.

The poster can be purchased here for those interested:

Maybe they couldn't think of anyone for the Isle of Wight.

Probably more to do with lack of space in London - I mean how many thousands of great writers have lived or been most associated with London? It's a wonder Keats is even mentioned at all.
