The illustrator in this book is not Gustav Dore, my library sent this one as the other has to be looked at in the main librar's refernce section. His was done in 1878, this one by Peake is 1940's. I love the illustration of a female death complete with blonde hair and full lips, apparently it was considered so hideous that it didn't appear with the poem til the 1970's. Great poem, love the pacing of it.
