“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

Shelley's Queen Mab Bicentenary

I like Alan Weinberg. He's a professor from South Africa, very creative, fizzing with intelligence. We just had the second in a series of Skypes about a project we're realizing on Shelley's Queen Mab, whose bicentenary is 1813 (just like Pierrot Lunaire). Watch this space.
