One Speaker, One Poem: Pr Marc Porée on John Keats: new date

Update: the event has been rescheduled on January 29th 2022 at 10 am

On Saturday, January 29th, at 10.00 a.m., Pr Marc Porée (ENS/Paris 3) will present John Keats’s sonnet “The day is gone and all its sweets are gone”. The conference will be held on Zoom for LOOP members and livestreamed on Youtube for anyone interested.

The day is gone and all its sweets are gone!

Sweet voice, sweet lips, soft hand, and softer breast,
Warm breath, light whisper, tender semi-tone,
Bright eyes, accomplish’d shape, and lang’rous waist!
Faded the flower and all its budded charms,
Faded the sight of beauty from my eyes,
Faded the shape of beauty from my arms,
Faded the voice, warmth, whiteness, paradise –
Vanish’d unseasonably at shut of eve,
When the dusk holiday – or holinight
Of fragrant-curtain’d love begins to weave
The woof of darkness thick, for hid delight,
But, as I’ve read love’s missal through to-day,
He’ll let me sleep, seeing I fast and pray.

John Keats (1819)
