Keats' Poems and Letters Henry Meynell Rheam's "La Belle Dame Sans Merci"

A 1901 watercolor rendering of "La Belle Dame Sans Merci", by English painter Henry Meynell Rheam. Note that the bleak atmosphere of the poem is reflected in the gloomy chromatic choices in the painting. Rheam has also included a visual depiction of one of the other "pale kings and Princes too" (37) who has fallen to the Belle Dame's charm.
