“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

Box of Books

That's the third shipment of books in so many months for writing reader's reports for Columbia and Cambridge UP. When I was a bit more hard up I would accept cash but the book option is always better, really. It's extraordinary to suddenly have twenty books that you very likely wouldn't buy yourself.
