About the Book

I met a Lady Full beautiful, a faery’s child; Her hair was long. She took me to her elfin grot And there we slumbered on the moss.

Muriélle is about artistic vision and sensual awakening; the story of a young model coming of age while sitting for one of John William Waterhouse’s most popular works of art, La Belle Dame sans Merci, 1893, (front cover) inspired by his model and based on the poem by Keats
