Getting nervous about 'Bright Star.'

I don't know. The website only has so much (read: nothing useful whatsoever), and IMDB is equally useless. The release date is for 2009, and it only says UK next to it, so I wonder if it'll be given a run-through there before an American release. (I WOULD DIE OF ANTICIPATION AND ANGER.)

Does anyone have any thoughts/information/previously unknown details about this?

Also...Ben Whishaw...Well, I wasn't sure at first but I do think it will work well enough.

Also, anyone on AIM and wanna fangirl over Keats ever? My AIM is 'JimSturgessIsHot.' I need more Junkets fangirls to giggle with!

Found this on DeviantArt and had to share:

Ha, funny you should ask that. Until about a month ago, I was "officially" an Anglo-Saxonist. Realized that's not where my heart was, so now I'm a Romanticist. I'm writing my diss (hopefully!) on popular medial literature; one of our rare books libraries has a truly droolworthy collection of primary material in the history of medicine. I can totally get copies of the Astley Cooper lectures Keats attended!

Long-distance diss support? Hells yes. It's always good to have an exterior perspective; departments have their comfort zones, and it's refreshing (not to mention necessary) to poke your head out of the bubble once in awhile.

Your topic sounds really interesting! Have you got that new Stanley Plumly book "Posthumous Keats"? (I swear to god, I do read---mainly---other Romantics, but the question of posterity looms *so* damn large with JK) I'm only a few chapters in, but Plumly purportedly focuses on Keats's contemporary reception and his immediately-posthumous "creation" as this tragic, Chatterton-dying-in-the-sunlight-with-a-rose-type. He also misreads Shelley's "Adonais," which is really interesting and productive in its own way...
