     Bright Star's title comes from a sonnet Keats wrote during the time he knew Brawn. This is a well-done portrayal of their romance, doomed as it was. Keats' poetic career had only begun to earn him some money, but his tuberculosis worsened. I include a link about Fanny later in her life.

     On my first trip to Europe, I went to Rome. While walking down the Spanish Steps, I passed by the house where Keats died. Little did I realize how he, an others, would come to influence me.
