He is certainly getting his posthumous fame! Lectures, podcasts etc. He was mentioned Radio 3 on Wed- a musician was naming writers/poets who inspire his compositions. I was in a bookshop on Thursday and I got talking to the woman there about films and I was about to mention Bright Star - but she did before I got to! She said she loved the film, it was beautiful, John was beautiful and mentioned how people were weeping at the end. She bought the DVD she liked it that much.
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

How long does it take for wikipedia to get corrected? I edited an article about two weeks ago; i inserted the word "Fish" just randomly in one of the articles. So far, nobody has caught it yet and its stil lthere. I thought there are people editing wikipedia all the time?

I didn't know that Wiki had "featured articles."

As for their editing, it takes a long time for them to see or correct much.

Did you know that Keats's Wikipedia page is currently the fifth most commonly viewed one in terms of the English poets, coming in above Lord Byron, Shelley, Wordsworth and even Milton?

http://top-topics.thefullwiki.org/English_poets

Should we be happy that so many are interested in Keats or worried that their one and only source of information about him might be Wikipedia? :lol:

I like it no matter what - people being introduced to John Keats is great. :)
