Read from March 06 to 09, 2012

Only picked this book up because I wanted to familiarize my self with more poetry, as I will have to write a piece of poetry in one of my assessments this semester. I watched the movie when it first came out and enjoyed it, but never read the letters it was based off of until now.

Needless to say, I don't get poetry and it doesn't get me. But good lord, it is beautiful. Especially Keat's letters to Fanny. In the past two decades of reading, I have never read anything so beautiful. It makes you want to kiss the page and your expectations in men go through the roof.

Perhaps if the poetry itself was read to me I might of been more swooned. But either way, its beautiful and should at least get a peek from a reader.
