bright star was beautiful. i was so taken by the story and the cinematography. it told such a stunning story through the beauty of location.
immediately after i got back from the theater i began to obsessively research keats and fanny's love affair. the letters that survive speak to their devotion. passion translates centuries, as they still took my absolute breath away.
"I could be martyr'd for my Religion - Love is my religion - I could die for that - I could die for you. My Creed is Love and you are its only tenet ... My Love is selfish - I cannot breathe without you."
