Keats poem in Call the Midwife

Postby Raphael » Tue Mar 11, 2014 10:33 pm

For those who can access BBC iplayer, Keats' touch has a memory is quoted in this very moving episode. A midwife, Camilla, who comes from a cold aristocratic family, faces the challenge of nursing her terminally ill, difficult mother ( Lady Browne) who has never shown her love nor, it seems, ever touched her.

A literature loving nun quotes the poem to Camilla- this scene is so affecting and powerful. This series is highly popular here, and it is wonderful our John's words are spoken so movingly and powerfully.

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.

Peter Sanson, 1995.

The oldest nun (can't remember her name) quotes from "Ode to the Nightingale" in the very first episode!
"But if you will fully love me, though there may be some fire, 'twill not be more than we can bear when moistened and bedewed with Pleasures." JK to FB 08.07.1819
