Picturing John Keats - Image or Imagination On my blog over at No Wriggling Out of Writing. Looking at how different artistic portrayals of Keats - from the charcoal sketches by Joseph Severn as Keats lay dying in Rome to Ben Wishaw’s performance in the wonderful film ‘Bright Star’ in 2009 - affect our responses to him. When the images are so varied how do we visualise the real man?

Ben Wishaw, who played John Keats in Jane Campion’s 2009 film ‘Bright Star’, reads Ode to a Nightingale. This was played over the closing credits - a great reason to stay in your seat for a little longer than usual.
