RZ, i.m.

[Lines from the Percy Bysshe Shelley poem “With a guitar. To Jane.” The guitar that Shelley gave to Jane Williams is in the Bodleian Library. All details there.]

This post is in memory of my friend Rob Zseleczky, who died at this time two years ago. He was a guitarist, and a poet, and his favorite poet was Shelley. We toasted to Rob’s memory last year on this night, and we’ll toast to his memory again tonight.

Rob loved that poem. I will read a little more Shelley today in remembrance. The Bodleian Library is amazing. I even saw a lock of Shelley's hair there and some annotated drafts if his poems. Thanks for the post.

The Bodleian site has those, or at least some of them, online. I was immersed in Shelley there and in books yesterday afternoon.
