La Belle Dame Sans Merci

Based on the John Keats poem of the same name, La Belle Dame Sans Merci tells the story of a Knight who encounters a mysterious Lady, fell in love, but ultimately fails her when he is horrified by her true form. The story is bookended with the plight of a shipwrecked Navigator who represents the choice between career and art that Keats himself had to make.
