One of the three originators of pre-Raffaelitism. "They glide, like phantoms, into the wide hall;/ Like phantoms to the iron porch they glide,/ Where lay the porter, in uneasy sprawl,/ With a huge empty flagon by his side:/ The wakeful bloodhound rose and shook his hide,/ But his sagacious eye an inmate owns;/ By one, and one, the bolts full easy slide;--/The chains lie silent on the foot-worn stones;/ The key turns and the door upon its hinges groans." Keat's "Eve of St. Agnes." [P. 10.]
