Unweave a Rainbow

Keats HouseReading at Keats House it seemed only right to begin with ‘Newton Sees the Seventh Colour’, given that Keats accused Newton of destroying all the beauty of the rainbow by reducing it to a prism. ‘Philosophy will clip an Angel’s wings, / Conquer all mysteries by rule and line, / Empty the haunted air, and gnomed mine- / Unweave a rainbow… (from Lamia) Still much beauty in and around the house in Hampstead, including the garden where ‘Ode to a Nightingale’ was written. And a good Templar night had by all at the launch of Mark Fiddes’ surreal and witty iOTA shot pamphlet The Chelsea Flower Show Massacre.
