    OLDIE PODCAzT 127: The Eve of St. Agnes and a Bleak Midwinter

    OLDIE PODCAzT 127: The Eve of St. Agnes and a Bleak Midwinter

    As a favor to a friend, I'll repost this old podcast.  It is the Eve of the Feast of St. Agnes, which of course reminds us of the famous poem by Keats.



    I, fan of poetry that I am, read out Keat's poem, 42 Spencerian stanzas.  It is torrid and lush, with marvelous moments and imagery, imbued with the revival of romantic, courtly love which was coming back into vogue in the early 19th century.



    The poem takes inspiration from a superstition, which I explain in an introduction.



    The Eve of St Agnes would inspire the Pre-Raphaelites, as a matter of fact.



    Speaking of Pre-Raphaelites, one of their circle, was Christina Rossetti, a poet in her own right.



    Christina Rossetti wrote a poem which later was made into a Christmas carol: In the Bleak Midwinter.  We are still within the Christmas cycle until Candlemas.
