Gentle readers,

Did you know that there is a concordance to Keats's poetry on the web? It's here:
http://www.rc.umd.edu/reference/keatsconcordance/index.html

Look up how often Keats uses the words "love" and "loveliness" in his poetry - astonishing!

Wow - this is great Cath. I enjoyed seeing how often he uses words. Sleep is used 133 times, love is 261.. ..cool. Thanks for the link!

You're welcome! It's a great resource, I think - and fascinating.

I bought one from e-bay a while back; it's an old one and it's huge! It's fascinating reading by itself! I can't imagine how much time it took the eight people or so to put it together.
