“Harp of the North! that mouldering long hast hung
On the witch-elm that shades Saint Fillan’s spring
And down the fitful breeze thy numbers flung
Till envious ivy did around thee cling,
Muffling with verdant ringlet every string,—

O minstrel harp, still must thine accents sleep?
‘Mid rustling leaves and fountains murmuring,
Still must thy sweeter sounds their silence keep,
Nor bid a warrior smile, nor teach a maid to weep?”

Stanza one of 6, by Sir Walter Scott


Lady of the Lake by Irish atist, Aoife Casey

The influences of the poem, The Lady of the Lake, are both extensive and diverse: Rossini composed an opera based on the theme and a 1920’s movie was adapted from it. As an artist, I am inspired by music and literature to produce related visual images. Frequently, the ideas that motivate artists in one field spill over to other areas and are interpreted through different media. This creates parallels between different genres of art even when there are no direct connections between the creators of these different works.

Examples of this close relationship of visual arts to literature can be seen throughout history, for example, in ancient Greece with the work of Aristotle and Plato. It can be seen in the Renaissance painters interpretation of the Bible and, in more recent times, in the film adaptations of original screenplays such as ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘the Lord of the Rings’. I expect that my work will continue to be motivated by different sources, some written works as in this case, and by the sounds and images of the modern world.
