Here is the little alcove with the statue of John Keats by sculptor Stuart Williamson. I like the statue very much as I think the artist has captured the poet's refined features and sensitive soul rather well. What do you think?
When I visited the statue the little shelter was crowded with schoolgirls enjoying their lunch, so I was unable to have a picture taken with him, sadly. I'm sure he would have enjoyed being surrounded by girls though.
So as a compensation, my friend took a picture of me with his bust at Keats House - it is exactly his height, and at 5'9" I too tower over him, but I definitely got the impression he was all man!
I will have to get the photo from my friend and will post it - meanwhile, I blogged about my London trip if anyone is interested in reading about it: http://maureen-lynchmere.blogspot.com/2 ... eries.html
