Since this video doesn’t quite rise to the full level of a new episode of ‘This Week in Keats,’ we’re calling it simply ‘This Day in Keats.’ Join Brian and Mike as they discuss Keats’s short letter to Jane Reynolds from this day. And the video may also end with Mike attempting to sing “Sweet Jane.” So there’s that…
To start off the fall, we’re happy to present Episode 3 of This Week in Keats. Join Brian and Mike as they discuss Keats’s summer, as they debate the likelihood that the poet comes down with venereal disease (!) sometime around this time in 1817, and as they debut the new hit gameshow: the Keats $100,000 Pyramid!
We ended 2016 with the first installment of This Week in Keats. Now we begin 2017 with the second. Join Brian and Mike for a discussion of Keats’s first volume of poetry, published 200 years ago today (or maybe a week from today–the exact date is hard to pin down). Starting next week we’ll have more letters and responses to them. A steady stream continues throughout the spring!
For our final response of 2016, the KLP is delighted to introduce a special segment, which we’ll feature from time to time on the site: This Week in Keats. As you’ll hear in the video, the basic idea behind the concept is for two of the KLP founders (Brian Rejack and Mike Theune) to discuss what’s been happening this week in Keats (200 years later). For the first episode, we’re discussing Keats’s 17 December 1816 letter to Charles Cowden Clarke. Enjoy!
