My name is Dalva and I'm a 24, soon-to-be graduate (M.S. in English, Brit. Lit. concentration) living in the mountains of Virginia. I've been a fan of Keats for several years and immersed in Keats studies for the past 3 years. I thought it was high time to pull myself out of the library, shake the dust off myself (from the numerous tomes), and engage in conversation with like-minded individuals.
My literary trinity is Shakespeare, Keats, and Austen, but I enjoy the Romantics and Victorians in general. I also like Greek mythology, the art of the Pre-Raphaelites, theater, rock and classical music, fairy tales, folklore, scifi/fantasy literature, and supernatural studies.
I'm also a Scorpio, for anyone who is interested in astrology.

I can't tell you how nice it was to find this forum and to find people who are ready, willing, and able to talk about Keats.
I have the one professor, who has furthered my research, and a handful of indulgent friends who humor me when I want to drink a glass of claret and recite poems on Feb. 23rd, but other than that, it has been very hard to find anyone who wants to have a discussion about Keats.
I'm delighted I found the Forum.
And may I extend my own very hearty welcome to you Dalva as custodian of this little soirée.
Good to have you on board. I hope you like the forum and stick around.
We are a small but very friendly bunch I hope you'll find, and very happy to have another Keatsian join our ranks
