Severn the Poet?

Postby Malia » Tue Jun 13, 2006 12:18 am

I was just re-reading Keats's letters (for the gazillionth time) and I came across a letter written by Severn to Haslam the day before Keats died. One of the lines in this letter never ceases to tug at my heartstrings--it esentially poetry:

"Poor Keats keeps me by him and shadows out the form of one solitary friend."

That is a wondeful line - I can't actually move the topic, just paste your quote in the other thread if you like but its' okay here.
"Oh what a misery it is to have an intellect in splints".
