“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

“Fantasy Space”

“The Dreadful Mystic Banquet”

I can already see how the latter will be useful for my essay for Eugene Thacker and Nicola Masciandaro. It's profoundly powerful and it's really about ecology...
