Library Trip

I went to the library today to borrow three books, all of them more than a decade old but certainly new to me as a beginning scholar of Keats:

The first two essay anthologies feature pieces dealing with my interest in the sonic qualities of Keat's poetry, M.H. Abrams's "Keat's Poems: The Material Dimension" and Garrett Stewart's "Keats and language," respectively. The latter deals with a contemporary re-assessment of Keats's influence on modern and contemporary open-form poetry, which has been downplayed in favor of the dominant view of him as a poet of closure and fixity.

(I also performed a mischievous but good-natured attempt at leaving a souvenir of-sorts: I accessed five OPAC machines and left the following search strings on them for other library patrons to see: Grecian urn, indolence, melancholy, nightingale, Psyche.)
