Edmund Dulac (1882-1953) French magazine illustrator, book illustrator and stamp designer.
"Ariel's Song" is addressed to Ferdinand, who with his father has just gone through a shipwreck in which the father supposedly drowned.
"Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:
Hark! now I hear them — Ding-dong, bell."
