“La Belle Dame Sans Merci – A Tone Poem” by Fletcher Cunniff

A very cool and haunting musical composition by Fletcher Cunniff, inspired by John Keats’s 1819 poem, “la Belle Dame Sans Merci.” The track integrates an old vinyl recording of an exquisitely quavering, Mid-Atlantic-accented reading by the American character actor Theo Marcuse (1920-1967) and is accompanied in this video (also by Cunniff) with illustrations from my comics interpretation of the poem.
