On Looking Into Chapman's Homer a Second Time

I have overrated
This Grecian song
'Tis gripping enough
But a touch too long

John Keats, November 1816

See, you say from time to time that you know nothing about poetry, but it's things like this - or an offhand reference to a throwaway line by Byron in your Bukowski review - that would seem to prove you wrong.

I must admit that I am quite fond of the Romantics. Great characters, interesting lives, and some of their poetry is good too.
