The Ancients stayed close to Nature, thought with her, and without extraordinary contrivances, they played with matter.

A quarter millennium of cleansed perceptions
3 Quarks Daily informs us that today is William Blake's 250th birthday. I was scarred for life by a doctorate-level class on Blake and Shelly and New Historicist Criticism while earning that first MA nearly 15 years ago. I'll skip Los and those pesky Emanations and in place of some verse about Jerusalem on England's shore I'll post an image. Have a happy, Bill.
