Lost in the World

Magnanimous Despair alone

Could show me so divine a thing,

Where feeble hope could ne'er have flown

But vainly flapt its tinsel wing.

Marvell

What a tomb this one is. Visible for a mile around, from the right positions, towering between the graves. It was designed by a well-known artist, also responsible for a quite remarkable portrait of the dead actress who lies here. It is called the Tomb of the Angel—as you see, for obvious reasons. The angel is beautiful, and bears some resemblance to the actress herself. With spread wings, she offers a mirror to the sky. The glass in the mirror is real, but unfortunately fissured by the elements.
