|Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes.|
Thank you, interwebs!
First published in 1820 in the Annals of the Fine Arts, John Keats' "Ode to a Nightingale" has gone on to become one of the most treasured works of lyrical poetry to have come out of the Romantic period. Supposedly inspired by the song of a nightingale that had built its nest in a tree near his home, Keats took pen to paper in the spring of 1819. What poured forth was a deeply personal reflection on mortality, nature, and the human condition.
