The Epitaph of Sibyl Vane

*This is the last poem from my AP Lit/Comp project.  It is an epitaph written for the character Sibyl Vane in Oscar Wilde’s “Picture of Dorian Gray”.

 

The Epitaph of Sibyl Vane

A beautiful, acting talent.
Her mind was corrupted by her evil lover,
A Juliet actress lived out her role.
Suffered heartbreak from which she couldn’t recover.
Here lies the woman, Vane.
A senseless death suffered in vain.
