John Keats
b. 10-31-1795; London, England
d. 2-23-1821; tuberculosis

John Keats was one of the most important Romantic poets and his letters are among the most celebrated by any English poet. He was a contemporary of Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron.

FYI - Keats was granted an apothecary licence but chose instead to dedicate his life to poetry.

John Keats quotes ~
• “A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.”
• “'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,' - that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”
• “Poetry should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one's soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself, but with its subject.”
• “In a drear-nighted December, Too happy, happy brook, Thy bubblings ne'er remember Apollo's summer look; But with a sweet forgetting, They stay their crystal fretting, Never, never petting About the frozen time.”
• “Son of the old moon-mountains African!/ Stream of the Pyramid and Crocodile!/We call thee fruitful, and that very while/A desert fills our seeing's inward span.” Sonnet – To the Nile

Frances Anne Kemble
b. 11-27-1809; London, England
d. 1893; England

Frances Anne Kemble was an actress and writer; her aunt was the notable tragedienne Sarah Siddons.

Kemble married American Pierce Butler in 1834. He later inherited a plantation with slaves and they spent the time on Sea Island, Georgia which she described in her Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation in 1838-1839.

Kemble was shocked by the conditions of the slaves and their treatment and she tried to better their conditions and complained to her husband about slavery. Tensions developed in the marriage and they divorced in 1849, with Butler keeping custody of the two daughters until they came of age.

She returned to the stage in 1847 in order to support herself and was reunited with her daughters when they turned 21. The eldest daughter married a doctor named Owen Jones Wister and they were the parents of Owen Wister, the author of the 1902 western novel, The Virginian.

Jack Kerouac
b. 3-12-1922; Lowell, MA
d. 10-21-1969; St. Petersburg, Florida

Novelist and poet Jack Kerouac is considered a literary iconoclast, one who challenged the establishment.

Kerouac, with William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, were pioneers of the Beat Generation, a post World War II cultural movement that was characterized by experimental drug use, interest in Eastern religion, rejection of materialism, and spontaneous creativity.

Kerouac was one of many writers who are associated with Tangier, Morocco.

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars...”
On The Road, 1957

Ken Kesey
b. 9-17-1935; La Junta, CO
d. 11-10-2001; Pleasant Hill, Oregon

Ken Kesey was the author of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest”.

Ken Kesey quote ~
• “The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer – they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.”
