Passages From The Poets: The Death of Cordelia.

Drawn by J. Franklin.

Engraved by G. P. Nicholls.

Lear. “Howl, howl, howl, howl!—O you are men of stones;

Had I your tongues and eyes, I’d use them so

That heaven’s vault should crack:—O, she is gone for ever!—

I know when one is dead, and when one lives;

She’s dead as earth:—Lend me a looking-glass;

If that her breath will mist or stain the stone,

Why, then she lives.”

Shakespeare. King Lear, Act V. Scene 3.
