Ben Whishaw Recites Poem by Keats

The lovely Benjamin John Whishaw has been a longtime crush of mine. So imagine my absolute delight when I came across a video of him beautifully reciting poetry, in particular "Le Belle Dame Sans Merci" by the Romantic poet John Keats.

The magnificent Mr. Whishaw.

The thirty-two-year-old English actor of stage and screen portrayed Keats in the 2009 feature film Bright Star, which was directed and written by Jane Campion. A compilation of scenes from Bright Star, the video features the comely actor reciting the Keats poem. Enjoy the video, which I have posted for you below.
