Dear Readers,

I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

Quick Link: Keats' Words--> Campion's Screenplay

Bright Star - from Keats' words to screenplay (via Enchanted Serenity of Period Films) shows us one perfect example of how carefully Jane Campion used words and images from Keats himself to craft her screenplay for the year's best film. Go check it out!

Interestingly enough, this reminds me of a reverse version of the way Wordsworth used his sister's exactingly detailed journal entries to inform his poetry.

This movie is out on DVD in a few weeks!

  1. Thanks for posting about this. Campion did her work so well. It's a pleasure to see that.

    I can see what you mean about Wordsworth and his sister's journal being the reverse. Which reminds me...I need to reread Dorothy's's such a curious thing. She pens out short beautiful observations and then an abrupt "I mended my shoe" hits. It seems like both have the same weight in her world.
