Keats or Shelley?

The next picture gallery is a little delayed (mainly because work was especially harsh today and I’m knackered out), but I also kept getting distracted yesterday while working on it. In Roman Holiday, Ann/Anya and Joe debate whether two poems Anne recites are by John Keats or Percy Bysshe Shelley. I know people still wonder who wrote what even now, and the Internet has surprisingly little information that I could find. But I did find the origins of Anne’s second recitation, which is called “Arethusa.” And it’s by Shelley, so Joe won that round. 😉 The first stanza follows: Continue reading “Keats or Shelley?”

a verdict on Harper’s, a hint at the next photo gallery

There’s an article critiquing the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar (the one with Natalie Portman in Audrey’s dress) here. While the author says good things about the dress and Natalie’s short article, she doesn’t much care for the rest of the magazine. The reason? The women in it are too thin.

Next up, thanks to the Audrey Hepburn Circle, I’ve found that the Gardens of the World miniseries now has their own website up! It’s a very Audrey-centric site, and goes more into detail on what’s in the new special edition DVD set, but the best part is Audrey’s full written introduction to the original series and an interview with her about the series. All in all it’s a nice site and definitely worth sharing, so click here to visit for yourself. Continue reading “"Still our Fair Lady," plus "Gardens of the World"”
