In nineteenth century Britain, Tyre was several times taken as an exemplar of the mortality of great power and status – both by John Ruskin in the opening lines of The Stones of Venice, and by Rudyard Kipling‘s “Recessional“. Oscar Wilde referred to Tyre in his poetry: “…my tyrian galley waits for thee, come down the purple sail is spread…” The children’s writer E. Nesbit devotes a chapter to Tyre in The Story of the Amulet.
