A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:New Contest Reminder! I've got two books of John Keats poetry to give away to faithful readers to commemorate the release of Jane Campion's Bright Star. To enter, send me an e-mail by September 30th with "Poetry" in the subject line containing the following info
Its lovliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep...
*your name (and nickname)
*your mailing address
*the name of your favorite poet and who should play them in a biopic ;)
The winners will be drawn randomly.
And while you're in contest mode, you should know that there's a poetry contest over at the Bright Star site where you can submit a love poems of your own composition
My thoughts on the movie are coming soon. In short, I'm very fond of it. Bright Star is currently playing in major markets with more to be added. Has it opened where you live? If so and you haven't seen it, what's holding you back. Go!
