Fitzgerald on Keats

2 Aug

For awhile after you quit Keats, all other poetry seems to be only whistling or humming. -F. Scott Fitzgerald

As a fan of American Modernism literature, I take anything F. Scott Fitzgerald says as literary dogma. Upon reading this quote for the first time, I was convinced. I really have been trying to get into Keats’s poetry. I even bought a book of his poems, but unfortunately, I haven’t had any time to read it. 😦 I just decided that I will read it tonight instead of my book for work.

    Thanks for following my blog. I read through a number of your posts here, and they put a smile on my face. I try to get my grammar right, but will appreciate the help.

      I love Keats’ poetry. “Lines on the Mermaid Tavern” is wonderful. Give him a chance. Or you can challenge yourself with some Gerard Manley Hopkins. That’ll fret your eyebrows! OK. I know my grammar is wrong somewhere in there. Be gentle.

    Keats is one of my favorite English poets. I hope you’ve found the time.

    “I just decided that I will read it tonight instead of my book for work.”

    Perfect.
