Just noticed that Prof. Turley also authored the book which claimed that Keats had a foot fetish - it was reviewed by the TLS as “excitable, irresponsible criticism.”
He seems intent to revel in provoking disaggrement and outrage rather than contributing to the academic debate about Keats's life and work - it's all about impact rather than credibility.
Raphael wrote:A foot fetish?! Good Lord what nonsense- John would be rolling his eyes at that. Did he make this silly connection by reading John's dislike of smelly woollen stockings? What daft book was this in?
