The Demoiselle D'Ys

When my Flea ad revenue makes me independently wealthy I shall pay for a film adaptation of The King in Yellow (the short story collection not the play itself). Starring in The Demoiselle D'Ys will be Audrey Tautou as Jeanne D'Ys. Oh yes.

There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:

The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.

Further googling reveals a number of striking Mythos themes in the Legend of the City of Ys... hmm...

Abaoue ma beuzet Ker Is
N'eus kavet den par da Paris

Since was drowned the City of Ys
Nobody found an equal in Paris

Pa vo beuzet Paris
Ec'h adsavo Ker Is

When Paris will be engulfed
Will re-emerge the City of Ys
