Almost 200 years ago, on 23 February 1821, the English poet John Keats died of tuberculosis in Rome at the age of 25. “I shall soon be laid in the quiet grave – thank God for the quiet grave,” he told his friend Joseph Severn, in whose arms he died. “I can feel the cold earth upon me – the daisies growing over me – O for this quiet – it will be my first.”
Keats gave instructions for his headstone to be engraved with the words “here lies one whose name was writ in water”, and visitors to Rome’s Protestant cemetery can still make a pilgrimage to see it today. But far from being “writ in water”, Keats’s words continue to echo, with a host of writing and events lined up to mark the 200th anniversary of his death.
Watch out for a dramatised production of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ which will be streaming online over half term. This is a set text for Year 11 and Year 10 and a fantastic opportunity to experience theatre at home. There will be prizes for the best dressed theatre photos of you watching it with your family! Letters will be sent out to parents/carers this week with information about how to access a student ticket price. Here’s a sneak preview…
Working remotely can be challenging but it can also be quite powerful too! Here is our guide to becoming an effective online learner…along with some expectations as well!
