I failed John Keats

I FAILED HIM. I FAILED HIM.

teaforlupin:

Remember that time me and my bestie changed all the primary nouns in some Keats to ‘elephant’ so we ended up with things like:

'Stop and consider! Life is but a day: / A fragile elephant on its perilous way / From a tree's summit; a poor elephant's sleep, / While his boat hastens from the monstrous steep / Of Montmorency…'

And ‘An elephant of beauty is a joy forever, / Its loveliness increases; it will never / Pass into nothingness…’

These people are definitely failing John Keats.

Lady Cas has a Tiger: Who is Charles Brown?

Who was Charles Brown? An interesting read. The last paragraph comments on how Charles failed John Keats.

In the 2009 film Bright Star, we find the poet John Keats sharing a house with not only with the Brawne family, but also a Scottish writer named Mr. Brown, played by Paul Schneider. Who was this Mr. Brown? The question had been bothering me ever since I saw the movie, so I decided to get some…

bookwormslikecoffee:

Bright Star is such a good movie with tons to appreciate. So why am I so fixated on this one part?? I’ve literally walked around since Saturday saying to myself, “I failed John Keats” in a pseudo Scottish accent. I’m such a goof. :-p

I FAILED JOHN KEATS (by hanachronism)

It happens to the best of us. It really does.

A poem needs understanding through the senses. The point of diving in a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore; it’s to be in the lake, to luxuriate in the sensation of water. You do not work the lake out. It is an experience beyond thought. Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept mystery.

John Keats

This is how I feel about Tumblr sometimes. But not at all times.
