You know about cenotes? The hole can be much smaller than the body of water underneath, especially on the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan. They were used by the Maya for the sacrifice of people and precious objects.

Tim Powers is great at inventing mythologies, I would recommend them. A bit of a fever dream.

Though composed in 1859 the poem was published in the year that Christina’s sister-in-law (and talented artist) Lizzie Siddall died of an opiate overdose after a long addiction. Though it seems the wrong sister is called Lizzie in the poem. Though Lizzie was close to her sister Lydia. Lydia married in November 1861 Read more
