Word and Image Meet

Within the hollow crown
That rounds the mortal temples of a king
Keeps Death his court, and there the antic sits,
Scoffing his state and mocking at his pomp,
Allowing him a breath, a little scene,
To monarchize, be feared, and kill with looks.

Richard II, act 3, sc. 2, l. 160-2.

  1. Hello there; cruising in from… somewhere? Browsing. Your meta on Doctor Who is fascinating, so I thought I’d add you to my reading list. 🙂
    This is a very profound combination of word and image…

  2. Thank you! Inspired at least in part by goldenmoonrose, who has been posting some remarkable stuff on S6.
    ‘Monarchize’ is a wonderful word, isn’t it?
