Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Poet Glynn Maxwell wakes up in a mysterious village one autumn day. He has no idea how he got there; is he dead? In a coma? Dreaming?--but he has a strange feeling there's a class to teach. And isn't that the poet Keats wandering down the lane? Why not ask him to give a reading, do a Q&A, hit the pub with the students afterword? Soon the whole of the autumn term stretches ahead, with Byron, Yeats, and Emily Dickinson, the Brontës, the Brownings, Edgar Allan Poe, Walt Whitman, Wilfred Owen, and many more all on their way to give readings in the humble village hall. And everything these famed personalities say--in class, on stage, at the Cross Keys pub comes verbatim from these poet's diaries, essays, or letters.
Subject: Authors > Fiction.
Genre: Autobiographical fiction.
