Keats wrote for 6 years, and he was dead at 25. These are poems for the young. They are hopeful, sensual, Romantic. For those of us who are older, they are wistful, elegiac, and I suppose voyeuristic, like returning to your high school after 30 years and peering under the bleachers.
Margaret Rawlings (died in 1996 at 89), was a wonderful actress, who knew the repertoire and I believed respected it. She could've played Lear or Falstaff or Gloucester, but only one who is desperate or a hack would perform Keats in her 70s. It is grotesque, like finding your grandmother naked in your bed.
