    Elizabeth was a GREAT reader, I wish she had read the Keats and Shelley too. Somehow the Aussie guy was a little overdramatic, and the other lady sounded a little too Texan or something to me for Shelley…

    I recently read this review
    of a new bio of Shelley. He makes some very good points about how his very high-mindedness led him to be so callous to his first wife. It was very interesting to think about this article while listening to you guys discuss Shelley.

    You mentioned it. Best poem ever. (Okay my favourite anyway..) “She walks in beauty’ {sigh} its wonderful.

    Okay, repeat offender – but as I was catching up on back issues of the podcast, and you were doing your first one in Tucson in a super-loud Starbucks, guess what was playing in the background? “Isn’t It Romantic?” Dude.
