The Conquerer Worm 🔱💀🔱 #idylleve #eyeseeyou #dancephotography #poetrylove
#hornsup ⚫️Somehow... this photo, together with the feeling I had that day, reminded me of one of my favorite poems by #edgarallanpoe: The Conquerer Worm. The poem reflects an apocalyptic theatrum mundi where human life is a play on stage put on for an audience of seraphs. The play is a tragedy, and the hero of the play is Death, the Conqueror Worm. 🔱💀🔱 "(...)
But see, amid the mimic rout, A crawling shape intrude!
A blood-red thing that writhes from out The scenic solitude!
It writhes!—it writhes!—with mortal pangs
The mimes become its food,
And seraphs sob at vermin fangs In human gore imbued.
Out—out are the lights—out all! And, over each quivering form,
The curtain, a funeral pall, Comes down with the rush of a storm,
While the angels, all pallid and wan, Uprising, unveiling, affirm
That the play is the tragedy, “Man,” And its hero, the Conqueror Worm.
