Marry, Date or Dump: More Romantic Poets

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.38.01 PM

I’m holding strong with the theme of British Romantic poets, with three more lyrical masters for you to choose from. This week you can marry, date or dump Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, and John Keats. I have a pretty big affinity for Keats, but I’m excited to see who you chose in the comments! 

Lord Byron: “You gave me the key to your heart, my love, then why did you make me knock?”

Lord Byron: “You gave me the key to your heart, my love, then why did you make me knock?”

Percy Shelley: “Joy, once lost, is pain.”

Percy Shelley: “Joy, once lost, is pain.”

John Keats: “My love is selfish. I cannot breathe without you.”

John Keats: “My love is selfish. I cannot breathe without you.”

P.S. Aren’t these guys way cuter than last week’s romantic poets?

  1. Date Lord Byron, he’s sassy. Marry Keats because he is a total dreamboat and perfect romantic (plus, his poetry is some of my favorite), and dump Shelley. He’s too mopey.
    -Kaitlyn 🙂

  2. I would dump Shelley in a heartbeat. I’d at least date Keats, maybe even marry him. (And yes, I love his poetry. But even the best poets get mopey from time to time.) Lord Byon is pretty colorful. I want some peace in my life, so I would dump him. He was too much of a player.

  3. Oh people, Shelley would make the best date! He loves women, treats them good, believes in feminism, buys them gifts, and you might end up the heroine in a major poem. Lord B really hated women, Keats was delightful, but really the mopey one. 🙂

    • Interesting. I honestly know the least about Shelley of the group. I mean, he eloped with two different 16 year old girls (once abandoning his pregnant first wife) … although there is obviously a degree of sexism surrounding all three poets.
