Into the wilds. The scene Alex recites forbidden poetry to Lena and the Poem from Elizabeth Barrett Brown. Beautiful. With thanks to ice-ridden for the drawing!
How do I love thee? Let me count the
ways. I love thee to the depth and
breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee to the level of everyday’s Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love thee with a passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints,
I love thee with the breath,Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.
This a simple creation, but says a lot. The best part is the bright red heart, a symbol of love. With all of the focus going straight to that, it’s very clear what they cannot take, no need to spell it out.
Artist tieknots on DeviantArt has created some pretty awesome book cover remakes for Delirium and Pandemonium as you can see here. I especially like the way those red lips stand out from all that yellow on the Delirium cover, they are meant to be seen!
Tieknots has a number of great pieces on her page, which you can find HERE
