After watching the movie Bright Star, based on a portion of Keats's life, I decided to treat myself to both the soundtrack and a book of his letters to Fanny. *sigh* They arrived today, together. In fact, I'm listening to the soundtrack right now, as I type this.
Here's a sampling of it. What's utterly unique about this is that the soundtrack contains fragments of actual Keats poetry/letters, or lines from the movie (as read by the actor). Random question: Why does EVERYTHING sound better, wrapped inside a British accent? *sigh again*.
By the way, I feel the same way about these wonderful movie tie-ins as I did about Emma Thompson's personal diary of her experience with Sense & Sensibility (which I HIGHLY recommend. That woman is the epitome of wit. Such a fun diary to read!).
Just wanted to share my movie-related "finds" with all of you. May your day be filled with little bits of poetry. Keats, or otherwise...
