Hello,

My interest in Keats began a couple of years ago when I happened upon "Ode to a Nightingale." The imagery was almost palpable and quite satisfying when compared to many other poets I had read. Since that time, I have delved more into Keats' works and will continue to share my joy of his poetry.

I profess a strong love for music, poetry, and the arts in general, but chiefly identify as a composer of music. I am quite eclectic in my tastes and habit but strive for some sense of normalcy within: I surely must not belong to this age. That aside, those who do not know me well simply brush me off as shallow and a bore; it is my hope that many here will find otherwise.

moonstruck,
Pjerrot

Hello Pjerrot. I'm beginning to think Ode To A Nightingale is his most popular poem- quite a few people on this forum have said it was the one that made them notice John and his poetry.
It is a great great poem- so it's not surprising.

I know what you mean about not belonging to this age...
I bet you are not a bore- keep posting Pjerrot.I look forward to sharing my love of this wonderful poet with you!
What music do you like? I listen mostly to folk ( Eddi Reader especially) and Classical, not much into pop these days with the exception of Sigur Ros.

Hello, Raphael. Thank you for welcoming me into the forum.

My musical tastes generally fixate upon music written before this century, but I'll give anything at least one good listen. When it comes to classical music, I simply have too many favorite composers to name them all here. At the moment, I'm finding myself listening to a great deal of countertenor Philippe Jaroussky's work. As for more modern stuff, Stephen Sondheim and Philip Glass my main favorites. And I do occasionally listen to Norwegian folk music to satiate the Norse blood in me.

Yes, I imagine it to be quite beautiful from the resources on the web and I someday wish to go there. It seems quite ethereal. As for learning the Norwegian language, the diacritical marks alone worry me!

I have to admit I don't know what diacritical marks are but I didn't find it a hard language- I was getting along with it well- it is much easier than French.

I believe diacritical marks are the dots, lines, and accents above letters, I may be wrong. I wouldn't know about French though, aside from some musical directions in French piano music.

Oh those marks are very helpful- shows you the vowel sounds.
French is much harder than Norwegian grammatically.
