Aestheticism & Decadence: ‘Pygmalion and the Image’

December 10, 2008 at 11:45 am (Uncategorized)

Dear All,

Morris’s ‘Pygmalion and the Image’ is included in his The Earthly Paradise (1868-70), a multi-volume work: this tale is in Vol. II.

It can be easily accessed online. The Victorian Web has it online here, and, brilliantly, follows the ending of the poem with a series of links to Burne-Jones’s paintings on the poem’s subject, and a few critical articles that deal with key issues for both Morris’ and Burne-Jones’ approach to the topic.

Enjoy!
Vicky
