Fanny: " I still don't know how to work out a poem."
Keats: " A poem needs understanding through the senses. The point of diving into a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore but to be in the lake, to luxuriate in the sensation of water. You do not work the lake out, it is a experience beyond thought. Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept the mystery."
BRIGHT STAR, a John Keats biopic.
A formidable movie, directed by Jane Campion (" The Piano" ;) , evoking a striking and intense atmosphere throughout the film.
The screenplay uses a lot of original quotes from Keats’ correspondence with Fanny Brawne, the tailoress he was madly in love with. And, of course, a lot of poetry gets recited, too! ;)
I highly recommend watching this beautiful piece of art!

" The Princess Diaries" series are one of my favourites. Anne Hathaway as Mia Thermopolis was really gorgeous.

The inspiration of every poet is the understanding of every dotted lines and the ability to depict extra ordinary meaning from signs .
