First Love Burns Brightest
  • Listen to my heart...

A riveting drama based on the three-year romance between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, the girl who lived next door. It was cut short by Keats’ untimely death at age 25, but marriage for them was impossible anyway as he had no money, and poetry did not pay very well.
